Takengon is a remote town situated in the region of Aceh, deep in the Gayo Highlands of northern Sumatra. It is an area famed for coffee production: the highlands are the largest producing area of Arabica in Indonesia, with a vast area of 84,000 hectares planted in three districts - Aceh Tengah, Bener Meriah and Gayo Lues. It has beautiful scenery, and is known for the lush mountainous terrain that surround small fishing communities around the landmark of Lake Taut Tawar, at around 1100 metres above sea level.

In the rural areas that lie north-west of the lake is Lampahan, a small coffee producing town that sits between 1300 and 1400 masl. There are 372 smallholder producers in the area, each cultivating coffee on farms an average size of 1 hectare each. Varieties grown include Catimor, Caturra and Timor Hybrid (also known as "Tim Tim"). A shade canopy and companion planting of staple food crops is found throughout the area, along with diverse indigenous wildlife.

Lake Takengon

I really like this coffee. It is balanced in my opinion, not too bitter and I get the smokiness, less so the citrus. It's like a more refined strong continental coffee.
