  • Producers + Mill: 

Mió is a coffee farm in Monte Santo de Minas, Brazil. They cover exports, imports, storages and sell coffee. The coffee is harvested with care by Mió workers, you can see their names on the infographic images, as well as where and when each stage of the coffee production has taken place. 

The farm spans a total of 1,589 hectares with 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 large hives of 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 as their supplies support the local town and surrounding communities.

  • Varieties: 

Mundo Novo is a natural hybrid of Typica sub-varieties, Sumatra and Bourbon.  Discovered in Brazil in the 1940s by the Instituto Agronômico de Campinase, the plant is strong, tall (3 m) and resistant to diseases and strong wind. Due to these features and its good cup quality, Mundo Novo is one of the most common amongst Brazilian coffee cultivators, forming around 40% of all grown coffee varieties within the country.Mundo Novo’s productivity is high but its cherries ripen somewhat later than other varieties. Its best growing heights are between 1,050 to 1,670 metres above sea level, with rainfall of 1,200 to 1,800mm per annum.


Yellow Catuaí is a hybrid of Mundo Novo and Caturra, which was developed by Instituto Agronômico de Campinas (IAC) in 1949. Together with Red Catuai, it is a highly resistant cultivar suitable for growing in higher altitudes and windy areas. Both Catuais have very refined and clean acidity, has a rich yield and is well-known for this fact. Next to Yellow Catuai there is also Red Catuai – Catuai-vermelho.

  • Process:
 The coffee cherries are selectively hand picked, after pre sorting they are then laid on large patios and dried for 23 days until reached the humidity level of between 11.2—11.5%. The coffee is then bagged and allowed 78 days rest, before it is then hulled using Cross Beater Hullers + Oscilating Screen Grade with then a finaly stage of Density Seperation. + Optical Eletric sorted and then bagged and ready for export.
