  • Small Producers, Guatemala

    This coffee is made up of beans from many small producers in Antigua near Finca Medina. Finca Medina provides a great deal of support to these Small Producers, acting as a central hub and centre for expertise and excellence to the surrounding farms. Finca Medina helps these producers increase productivity in a competitive way, achieving a better quality of life for the small producer and his family. In most markets the most vulnerable are small producers, due to different factors, such as: low market prices, high infrastructure costs, reduced accessibility to financing and technological information, for these reasons Finca Medina supports a group of small producers of coffee from the Antigua region.

  • The assistance is from cultivation to commercialisation. The main support includes training, technical visits to the small farms, educational tours, donation of coffee varieties resistant to rust, development of foliar fertilisers to prevent rust, facilitate protective equipment, donation of molasses, support in soil analysis and financing if desired by the small producer.

  • Finca Medina works as a collection centre for the processing and transformation of the coffee of the small producer, carrying a strict traceability and special care during the handling. In addition, the water resulting from the wet process is treated through water treatment and the pulp is converted into compost, thus avoiding the contamination of our environment and using it as organic matter for the soils.

Transparency

Transparency is at the heart of what we do, it's one of our core tenants. We don't rename our coffees out of respect for the producers who've put so much work into it already and we believe in being open about our pricing and what we pay because we believe it's important to create that connection - coffee doesn't come from a vacuum, there is a person behind it and they're just as deserving of a fair deal as anyone else.
