Brazil Mió Red Honey Processed Yellow Catucai Peaberries
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 coffee beans.
Mio Farm provide 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.
Mio farm does put a greatest attention to the processing : 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 Red Honey processing involves the mechanical de-pulping of the cherries at the wet-mill while ensuring the mucilage stays attached to the beans. This sticky part of the cherry contains high amounts of sugar, resulting in a pronounced body and developed, chocolaty sweetness in coffee
