About the Coffee
Gayo coffee normally refers to the Takengon area, and is located in the highlands of Aceh near Lake Tawar. Our Gayo G1 coffee comes from Takengon and its surrounding areas. Temperatures around the Takengon area are much cooler due to its altitude, hence it is for coffee plants. Most farms in this region are family-owned farms and are small in size, averaging about 1-2 hectares. Gayo coffees are usually semi-washed, which means that the parchment is hulled while still having a very high moisture content (as contrasted with fully washed coffee where they dry the parchment to roughly 12 percent moisture). This process also uses sun-drying patios, which many people believe gives Aceh coffees their unique, earthy yet pleasant flavor. Due to its high dependency on sunlight, farmers and collectors have to be very careful, making sure that coffees are not exposed to the elements.
