Sumatra Aceh Gayo
Spectacularly, for a coffee this excellent and clean tasting, the cultivars are both old hybrids. “Tim tim” is just the local name for the Timor Hybrid, a spontaneous cross of arabica and robusta found first on its namesake island in the Pacific. The vigor it expresses against disease has made it a desirable ingredient when creating tasty arabica hybrids that can stand up to rust and climate change, e.g. One of the most popular of these is Catimor (Caturra x Timor Hybrid), and has numerous variations worldwide. While not often regaled by specialty roasters for their flavor, the cup here is proof that with care and attention to cultivation and processing there is incredible potential.
