The Mogiana region, split between the states of São Paulo and Minas Gerais, is the most renowned of three major Brazilian coffee growing regions. This region has rolling hills and uneven terrain, which leads to farms being small to medium in size.
This coffee is sourced from the Carvalho family and their farm Fazenda Cachoeira De Grama in Vale De Grama, Mogiana. The farm is a 411-hectare plot, with about 100 hectares planted in coffee; they also grow eucalyptus nearby. There are 27 full-time and about 40 seasonal employees tending to the Catuai and Yellow Bourbon trees planted here, the oldest of which dates back to 1956.
The natural process gives hazelnut and chocolate notes to this coffee.
