Guatemala washed Arabica SHB EP Genuine Antigua Finca Medina
Guatemala is a fascinating country with rich indigenous culture and stunning natural habitats. The most striking features of its landscape are the 37 volcanos, several of them still being active. These volcanos are not only attractive for travelers to discover but make up the distinct characters to be found in Guatemalan coffees. Antigua is one of the oldest coffee-growing regions in Guatemala and famous for producing some of the best coffees in the world.
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.
