This lovely naturally processed coffee comes from Finca Medina and Anexo Portal located 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 and is now known for stunning colonial architecture and 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 an ideal location for producers like Finca Medina, who have 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 modern processing technology that plays a big role in the quality and consistency of their coffees. This particular lot is a stunning example of a beautiful naturally processed Guatemala with sparkling acidity, a velvety body, and complex fruit notes.
