Indonesian Coffees and the Gayo Sumatra 

Indonesia is the fourth largest exporter of coffee in the world. It is a large chain of islands that has different varieties of coffee ranging from Robusta to specialty Arabica. Sumatra is one of the most famous of these islands and produces many specialty coffees. The Gayo coffee itself is one of the most consumed coffees from the Indonesian island of Sumatra. Its strong aroma and mild bitterness make a wonderful cup of coffee. It has an array of earthy spices that mix agreeably with a syrupy body and notes of dark chocolate, caramels and black tea. Many call the Gayo one of the best, if not the best, coffees from Indonesia.
