Alta Mogiana

Located in the northeastern region of the São Paulo state along the border with Minas Gerais, the region has elevations between 900 and 1,000 meters above sea level and an average annual temperature of 21 degrees Celsius. The gently rolling land, rich soil, the fresh water of the Rio Grande, and higher elevations make it a region well suited to coffee production.

Much of Alta Mogiana’s crops are grown on small family-owned farms, which are supported by established local infrastructure and easy access to new technologies. Skilled labor and reliable roads further facilitate the transport of the region’s coffee production.
