Finca Medina boasts the soft suggestion of fruit that natural processing yields, and the natural resiny sweetness that is characteristic of the origin. This coffee is set apart from many among our Central American offerings, thanks to the natural processing and to the complexity that it introduces to the cup. This isn't the first time we've featured this coffee, and we don't expect it to be the last.

Where it's from

Nestled among three volcanoes, the city of Antigua’s fertile soil and high altitudes makes it a prime location for producers like Finca Medina. The farm has been producing specialty coffee since 1842, and has grown to have two estates - one named after the organization itself and the other called Anexo Portal. Both farms utilize cutting edge processing technology, contributing to each coffee’s consistency and quality. This naturally-processed Guatemalan coffee includes cherries from the original Finca Medina estate plus Anexo Portal. After separating the floating cherries, the coffees are dried on raised African beds, which are closed off each day for two hours to ensure a slow maturation process - typically between 28 and 30 days. The superb growing conditions and allowance of time for processing created a deep sweetness and a complex flavor experience in the natural Finca Medina.

Elegant and Bright

This is a beautiful coffee! My brother-in-law received it as part of a subscription from a third party company and passed it onto me during a recent visit. I enjoyed this one as a V60 where the pineapple came through nicely and the body was a little heavier, but it truly shined when I switched over to the Chemex and used a lower ratio brew recipe. When I did this, the full bouquet of flavors was allowed to shine through. I get the listed tasting notes, but also a bit of grapefruit. The Chemex also highlighted some subtle caramel and floral notes that weren’t really present in the V60. Overall an excellent coffee with a lot of nuance to explore!

Blows my mind

We buy about 3 lbs of coffee a month from various roasters, this is one of the best we have ever received. Top notch roasting gives clues the moment you open the bag and this one sets an amazing tone at first sniff.

Delicious Fruity Notes!

Another balanced and sweet coffee from Methodical! I got to “pre-taste” this coffee two years ago and it’s only gotten better. Love the notes of fruit and citrus in this cup!
