For over 20 years, we’ve been proud to partner with
Finca Medina in Antigua, Guatemala. Nestled
among three volcanoes, Acatenango, Fuego, and
Agua, the city of Antigua was once the capital of the
Spanish Empire in Central America, but it’s now
known for stunning colonial architecture and the
nearby farms that produce some of the region’s
highest-quality coffee. Antigua’s climate, high
altitude, fertile volcanic soils, and a distinct
agricultural tradition make this city an ideal
location for producers like Finca Medina, a
company that has been producing specialty coffee
since 1842. Located in the village of San Lorenzo El
Cubo, in the region of Ciudad Vieja, Finca Medina
includes two estates, one named after the
organization itself and the other called Anexo
Portal. At both farms, the staff implements some of
the most modern processing technology we’ve seen
in Latin America, contributing to each coffee’s
consistency and quality.
This black honey-processed Guatemalan coffee,
which was harvested in 2022 includes cherries from
the original Finca Medina estate plus Anexo Portal,
a property that was acquired in 2016. After

separating the floating cherries, the coffees are de-
pulped and dried on raised African beds. The beds

are closed off each day for two hours to ensure a
slow maturation process. This process is completed
in 28 to 30 days. With a sparkling acidity and floral
flavors, this coffee is not only one of the best
honey-processed lots our team has ever tasted; it’s
also an indication of the alternative processing
methods gaining popularity in Latin America,
making us excited to see what’s to come.
