Established in 1842, Finca Medina rests between three volcanoes in San Lorenzo el Cubo in Guatemala’s Antigua region. The team at Finca Medina combine modern processing and sustainability practices with a long agricultural tradition to grow exceptional specialty-grade coffees.
Finca Medina aims to be a pioneer in sustainable farming practices in Antigua, a region famous for its quality coffee thanks to rich volcanic soil and high elevation. Shade trees provide ideal growing conditions, help protect the soil, and control weed growth without chemical herbicides. Coffee pulp, farm waste, and water used in coffee processing are recycled to make compost, reducing water use and eliminating the need for chemical fertilizers. Thanks to these efforts, all of Finca Medina’s coffees have been awarded Rainforest Alliance certification.
Our Finca Medina Honey shares the natural’s sweetness while presenting a more subdued, complex flavor profile. Honey processed coffees are pulped before drying, removing the skin and leaving the innermost layer of fruit--the sticky, sugary mucilage. The result is a smooth, naturally sweet cup of coffee. The mild acidity of our Finca Medina Honey reminds us of ripe pineapple and molasses with hints of honeysuckle.
