Finca Medina (Guatemala)
A luxuriously sweet and juicy Guatemalan, naturally proccessed Caturra.
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.
All coffee here is grown under shade, a technique that helps protect the soil and control weed growth, removing the need for chemical herbicides. Compost made from coffee pulp, farm waste and recycled water from coffee processing is used in place of chemical fertilizers. The team at Finca Medina have a strong focus on processing and use an onsite laboratory for QC, which further ensures consistency and quality. Medina also pride themselves on their Social Responsibility goals which involve them investing in medical care, housing and education for their local community.
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.
