The Mogiana region, which runs along the São Paulo and Minas Gerais border, is home to some of the most consistently sweet and well-structured naturals produced in Brazil. Selected lots from individual farms were processed together to create a rich, smooth, balaced and clean cup. The goal with this coffee
is to have a reliable profile from batch to batch,
making Mogiana a coffee that can be a base of our menu year-round.

After generations of passion, hard work and taking the best care possible of his farms, Don William was not comfortable with selling his coffee cherries to a production facility.
The only solution was to add value by processing his own coffee. When Don William got the mill he named it after his second daughter Hellen, who was helping him on this adventure. In 2015 he decided to specialise on natural processing of the best quality cherries – a bold move, as over-fermentations could have meant a tremendous monetary cost.
It is an honour to present this beautiful coffee and life story to you.

Don Ivan’s first contact with the coffee industry was at the early age of only 15 years.
At this age, he was eager to work and improve his situation, and although this first contact was not as romantic as for many, he was given the opportunity to carry coffee sacks around the warehouse, and feed the ovens with wood from Coopedota, the second biggest cooperative in Costa Rica at the moment.
His passion and hard work was soon spotted by the director manager of the time who gave him more and more responsibilities, until Don Ivan reached the position of quality and production manager in this very influential cooperative.
As the times changed, and the specialty culture became the only solution for coffee growing families, Don Ivan decided to undertake a new challenge and in 2019 and he managed to open his own Micro-Mill, “Sagaz”.
Today, with his abundant knowledge, and family’s support, he is adding value to his community by processing high end coffee from his farms and from his neighbours’ farms too!

This coffee was sourced from our friends from Cofinet. Popayán is located in the department of Cauca at 1.700 m.a.s.l. The region’s topography is perfect to grow exceptional coffee! The so-called Meseta de Popayan is sheltered by the Andes mountain range which helps generate homogeneous climatic and altitudinal characteristics. The result is a balanced cup profile with floral and caramel notes.

Here is a bit on how Decaf Sugarcane EA is made. Green coffee is being steamed in a low-pressure environment. This process opens the pores of the coffee, allowing for easier caffeine extraction. Coffee is placedin a solution of water and Ethyl Acetate (E.A.), a naturally occuring compound and solvent derived through the fermentation of sugarcane. Beans are submerged in the solvent, which naturally bonds to the salts of chlorogenic acids within the coffee, allowing the extraction of caffeine. With time the beans get saturated and the solution hasto be changed. This manipulation is done several times. When the process is finished the beans are steammed again to remove all traces of EA, dried, get prepared for transportation and roasting.
