About Kayon

Coffee cultivation in Indonesia holds a 300-year-old story.

The Gayo highland region is the most well-known place in Indonesia for its high-quality Arabica beans and sustainably managed farms, mostly small family farms or home garden plots using traditional techniques. “Gayo” itself means “nice” and comes from the local tribe of around 85,000 people living in the mountains where this coffee is grown.

The Rahmat Kinera Cooperative is in Central Aceh, in an impressive landscape of lush rainforests, dramatic valleys and majestic volcanic terrain, all surrounded by natural forests. This exotic locale is the last place on earth where elephants, rhinos, tigers, clouded leopards, and orangutans are found in one area.

What is Giling Basah?
Unique to Sumatra, the Filing Basah process that semi-washes the coffee, giving the beans a full-bodied flavour with reduced acidity. The spicy notes, such as earthiness, tobacco, and herbs, are allowed to shine.
