Sumatra Aceh Gayo Mandheling
Gayo coffee’s entry to the world specialty market is due to its highly
valued, typical flavor. Its fine aroma and lack of bitter taste have become
the characteristics of this Gayo Arabica product. The Gayo Coffee
Research Agency, said Gayo Arabica coffee cannot be obtained from
anywhere else because of the estates’ higher altitude which also play a
contributory role as both are ideal for growing coffee. The best and most
widely planted varieties are Gayo 1 and Gayo 2.
Tasting notes: Full bodied, smooth, with notes of chocolate and drying leaves. Uniquely and amazingly funky.
