More about this coffee
In 1911, Fioavante Pellicer bought Fazenda Barreiro, his first patch of land in Monte Santo De Minas. The Farm is now run by grandson Carlos, Renata and Ana Pellicer at MIO. Coffee is Selective hand-picking and is a fully traceable & sustainable coffee showcasing the beauty of Brazilian Specialty Coffee.
The natural process which doesn’t involve a wet-mill considered the most eco-friendly coffee process there is.
Mió is a coffee farm in Monte Santo
de Minas, Brazil, that exports, imports, stores, and sells coffee. Coffee harvested with care by Mió workers.
The farm spans a total of 1,589 hectares.
A third of the land is used for the coffee processing and milling facilities, some pasture areas and the plantation of eucalyptus trees, which is home to some lovely bees. The rest of the land is equally divided between the coffee trees and the native
forest reserve. With plenty of spring water in the estate, one of Mió’s responsibilities
is to not only maintain the water flow but to also improve water quality.
Dedicating the same amount of land to the coffee as to the native forest helps preserve the natural characteristics of the area. The farm is located between Southern Minas Gerais and the High Mogiana region. Two distinct terrains, one bringing a citric acidity, the other
a full body and sweetness to Mió’s coffee.
Mio pride themselves on a 100% traceability guarantee for the entire crop every year. Each stage of the journey, from where the cherries were harvested, which trucks moved them, how and when they were processed, is tracked using satellite imagery. Being a technology-driven farm improves the farmworkers’ quality of life, ensures an abundant harvest and guarantees the highest processing standards for the crop.
Our state-of-the-art processing facilities include: a wet-mill, concrete patios, raised beds, ambient-air drying rotating machines, wood silos, cross-beater hullers and a density separator. The beans are then sorted further according to size and colour using an oscillating screen and optical-electronic system.
The coffee trees are planted, cared for and harvested by some fantastic people. The coffee beans undergo either Natural or Honey processing at the farm and are then dried to achieve the desired humidity. They rest in wood silos, before being hulled and separated by density. All these decisions are made with the farm’s Q-Grader to achieve the desired cup profile for that batch.
