Founded more than 150 years ago, the family-owned Finca Medina is located in the outskirts of Antigua. Finca Medina is dedicated to advanced technology in coffee production and milling processing like their drip irrigation system while also maintaining traditional work techniques. Being also committed to sustainability, the Finca especially attaches importance to ensure the wellbeing of their employees, maintaining awareness and care of the production environment as well as maintaining a high production of first quality coffee. This is being ensured through a professional laboratory where the necessary quality controls are carried out for every single lot of this genuine Antigua coffee. The preservation of the ecosystem and the proper maintenance of the shade trees are of utmost importance to the coffee plantation. Therefore, 10 ha of land are being preserved as unspoiled nature so that the biodiversity of flora and fauna can prosper and thrive unhindered.
The team at Finca Medina dries the whole coffee cherries on raised African beds for about a month. This technique ensures good airflow as the fruit matures and imparts juicy, sweet flavors to the seed.
