Permata Gayo was founded in 2006 in the Bener Meriah district of the Aceh Province in Sumatra, Indonesia. When we visited the farmers there, we were impressed to learn that they have two harvest a year, and their plants were some of the healthiest we'd ever seen - big, green, lush and 100% organic! At around 1600m, the conditions are ideal for growing Arabica coffee in the Aceh region - rich, volcanic topsoil with a good amount of rain and sun. However, they told us about some of the problems they'd been experiencing that season with the the pests and less predictable rainfall, both likely due to climate change. To compensate for it, they had new techniques they were using with adding compost to the soil.
We use a medium roast to bring out the earthy body, and hints of caramel. It makes an excellent iced coffee, and also is a great balanced cup served hot.
