This extraordinary export from the Aceh region, containing Tim-Tim, Djember, and Ateng varietals, is a quintessential example of Gayo coffee. Aceh is the northernmost province in Sumatra, and its citizens have their own religion, dialects, and traditions, including the ways in which they process their coffee. The wet-hulled, sun-dried process creates an earthy, complex flavor profile that is unlike any other coffee. The Gayo is sharper and brighter than our Lintong and makes an excellent espresso base. It is bold and assertive, with none of the muddiness that tends to characterize Mandheling. This is an excellent choice if you love the Sumatra profile and want to try a very clean sun-dried, wet-hulled coffee.
Our latest shipment of Gayo is particularly beautiful and of uniformly high quality. It has quickly become a top seller. If you haven't tried Gayo before, now is the time: these beans are fantastic! Green unroasted coffee for home or commercial roasters.
