The Mogiana Region, where coffee has been cultivated since the late 1700's, is in the Brazilian highlands. The landscape features rolling hills and diverse topography, primarily occupied by small farms. The conscientious practices of these farmers have made Mogiana renowned for its exceptional coffee quality.

Cooperativa Regional de Cafeicultores em Guaxupé

Coffee Background:
While the coffee-growing regions of Brazil are vast, this lot originates from Cooperativa Regional de Cafeicultores em Guaxupe (Cooxupe), a cooperative founded in 1937 with 14,000 active members. Each member typically manages farms averaging 60 acres in size. The coffee cherries are cultivated and harvested by individual producers, who then dry them on patios until they reach 15 percent moisture. The final drying process to achieve 11 percent moisture is done using mechanical driers. The coffee is stored meticulously until it is ready for milling and export, all of which is done at the Cooxupe dry mill. This facility ensures traceability and quality control, allowing each producer to be compensated based on the quality of their coffee. The current offering is classified as Fine Cup (FC) and Strictly Soft (SS), the highest cup quality category in Brazilian coffee grading.
