The Mio Estate’s mission is to oversee all aspects of coffee production, export and import. This makes them a great partner for Rave as we continue to remove needless steps in our supply chain. The Estate’s coffees are fully traceable through every stage, from the exact location of cherry harvest, to which trucks were used for transportation; never before have we received such comprehensive traceability reports! The Estate also responsibly cultivates their land and dedicates only 50% to coffee production and the remainder to natural forest. Natural processing is preferred here so as not to exploit the region’s rich natural spring water sources - and the Estate is also committed to maintaining water flow and improving quality. In 1939, Renato Ribeiro was born at Fazenda Cachoeirinha, where his father was employed as an immigrant worker for many years. The farm is now called Mió, and its owners are his daughter Renata and her husband, Carlos.
