Coffee-growing near Altinopolis, in Alta Mogiana.

Alta Mogiana refers to the northern part of the Mogiana region, which lies along the border with Minas Gerais in the north of São Paulo. The region has long been recognised for high-quality production thanks to its cool climate, high elevations, and red volcanic soils, and has held an Indicação de Procedência (IP) since 2013 (Furtado de Andrade 2017).
