Mió is a family run farm in Monte Santo de Minas, Brazil. The city has a strong Carnaval tradition that has been celebrated every year since 1930. Its main streets close and two rival groups, Braz and Belém, battle it out in parades.
Mió take enormous pride in the traceability of their coffee, and offer detailed reports to their roasters on the exact journey that the coffee has taken. This coffee uses a red honey process, whereby 70 – 80% of the mucilage stays attached to the beans, when they are then dried, and subsequently rested in silos for 30 to 60 days.
Traceability is of huge importance to Mió. 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.
The farm spans a total of 1,589 hectares. One third of the land is used for coffee processing and milling, whilst the remaining land is equally divided between the coffee trees and the native forest reserve. This helps to preserve the natural characteristics of the area. With plenty of spring water in the estate, one of Mió’s responsibilities is not only to maintain the water flow, but also to improve water quality.
- All our coffee beans are heat sealed at the time of roasting. If ordering ground coffee, in order to freshly grind the coffee beans to your requirements, the first seal will be broken on the top of the bag at the time of grinding, the zip-lock seal will be closed before dispatch. This does not apply to unground beans.
- If you are placing a back-order of this item, coffee may take up to 3 additional days prior to dispatch/drop-off of your order
