Alta Mogiana is a southeastern region of Brazil and is one of the traditional coffee producing regions of the country. The combination of high altitudes and average temperature throughout the year give coffees grown here a high content of natural sweetness.
This coffee is sourced from a group of around 100 smallholder producers in Alta Mogiana. The region itself takes its name from the railway system, Railways Mogiana Company, which was built in 1872 in order to transport the huge volumes of coffee that were being grown in the area. The harvest on these coffees is primarily done mechanically, with a quality sort after harvest and before drying.
The resulting cup reminds us of hazelnut & caramel.
