  • The story...

    Finca Medina is situated in the foothills of Antigua’s majestic Agua Volcano. Antigua is a region world famous for speciality coffee cultivation thanks to the mineral content of its volcanic soil, high altitude and consistent rainfall patterns. Established in 1842, Medina combines a rich agricultural tradition with a forward-thinking ethos, based on modern processing and sustainable practices.


    Many washed coffees, particularly in Central America, are dried in large ‘guardiolas’, however Finca Medina have chosen to dry their coffee on African beds. This allows for slower and more controlled drying, contributing to improved shelf life of the green coffee along with a greater balance and complexity in the cup. The team at Finca Medina are immensely proud of their water treatment plant which helps them recycle almost all water that is used during the coffee processing stages in a natural and environment friendly way.


    We are proud to have sourced this coffee in collaboration with Javier, founder of Caribbean Goods. Javier is a Guatemalan born and now Glasgow based coffee importer with an overwhelming passion for and knowledge of coffee. To Javier (and us) Guatemalan coffee is more than a commodity, more than a delicious drink. It is a way of life and an opportunity to support farms like Finca Medina and their surrounding communities.
