Take a tour with us to the island of Sumatra in Indonesia. High up in luxuriously green mountains, decorated with languid lines of flowers blue rivers, and gently garnished at the top with shrouds of fog and clouds.
It is here we find one of the most exquisite and incredible coffee beans in the world; Gayo’s premium coffee beans. But what exactly makes coffee from the Gayo region of Sumatra so incredible? Quite a lot actually!
It starts with the soil…
For starters, the land, terroir, and area that the coffee beans are cultivated on in Gayo are perfect for producing amazing coffee. Gayo’s beans are 100% premium quality Arabica beans, and Arabica beans thrive when they are cultivated under very specific conditions.
High altitudes lead to tastier beans. This is because the higher the elevation, the cooler the air is, and the higher the amount of precipitation and moisture in the air are. Arabica plants love the cool, wet, climate because they can grow more slowly and develop their coffee cherries more deeply.
The cloud coverage also shields them from the hot tropical sun. Mountains and highlands also possess volcanic soil, many of them having been formed by volcanic activity. The volcanic soil provides proper drainage from heavy and constant rain, and also nourish the plants with soil rich in vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. Gayo’s beans are no exception to the high-quality growing conditions Arabica beans need.
