About the Ata Mogiana Region
The region is in the south-east of Minas Gerais, more recently known by Alta Mogiana Mineira, one of the traditional regions that produces the best coffees in Brazil. This region stands out by the combination of altitude and average temperature during the year, thus presenting high content of natural sweetness. The altitude in this region ranges from 1080 to 1270 meters above sea level. Several cultivars are produced in this region, such as Red and Yellow Catuai, Acaiá, Mundo Novo, Catucaí, Bourbon, and Arara.
Most farms in this region are considered small. Alta Mogiana has an excellent infrastructure with easy access to technology and qualified labor. The region traditionally produces the best coffees in the state of São Paulo due to its high altitude, favorable climate and wide experience in producing specialty coffees.
