Since 2002, Finca Medina, has been a member of the National Association of Coffee and also member of the Antigua Coffee Producers Association.

Medina Farms satisfies the standards for sustainable productions for the environment and has diverse initiatives directed towards the preservation of the rainforest. It also, supports diverse programs focused on the wellbeing of the families that live and work in the farm.
In Medina Farms we breed the best coffee varieties: Bourbon, Caturra “Pacas”, Sarchimor, Marsellesa. Our crops use only the best coffee grafts that come from certified seeds and are grown under shadow.
The coffee breeding is performed under the traditional methods of pruning to renew the tissue and to maintain the adequate production. In order to achieve good breeding we use dripping watering techniques and monthly controls of the nutrition index. We also perform several fertilizations using compost or organic manure that comes from the decomposition of the pulp. All of the farm´s coffee grows under the shadow of Gravilea and Inga trees; we have 322 shadow trees for each hectare in the farm. This environment assures optimal conditions to achieve high quality harvests. The conservation of the ecosystem and the suitable maintenance of the shadow trees are key to guarantee the best quality of coffee breeding, this it helps to establish an optimal environment and protects the quality of the soil and vegetation, which in turn promote the growth of coffee beans with superior quality.
