Aceh is the heaven for the coffee lovers, the variety of flavors and types of coffee found in the country Iskandar Muda. And how to enjoy it also looks diverse, ranging from village coffee shops, cafes can even enjoy directly the coffee fields, all have their own art and uniqueness in the presentation.
Traveling this time, I would like to invite readers to visit and stop by one of the best coffee-producing countries in Indonesia, is Gayo . When you are in the Gayo highland, it is not beautiful if you do not stop and enjoy the taste of coffee in the garden directly, even if only to warm the body.
About 11 km from the city of Takengon in the direction of Bener Meriah, there is a coffee shop that offers a unique concept and guaranteed that anyone will love it. Even for visitors who are not coffee addicts.
The Indonesian Coffee Gallery began to open in 2016 in the middle of a stretch of family-owned coffee plantations. His name was immediately hit and became a must-stop when he was in Gayo Highland.
Not only are the delicious coffee concoctions, the place is very Instagramable. The visitors sit in huts made of wood or houses on stilts as high as 2 meters, in the middle of an Arabica expanse. While sipping espresso, visitors can enjoy the faint music of the lounge.
This coffee shop began to open since 9 am, but the owner suggested to try to visit at night, because the atmosphere is much very different, the air is cool and cool and comfortable even more to add sensation in enjoying coffee until the eyes feel sleepy.
But it is not wrong if you want to visit the Indonesian Coffee Gallery in the morning or afternoon, the cool mountain air is still very felt in the region, fog and clouds of smoke from the mountains are still visible and visitors can also capture moments while in the coffee field.
The coffee shop, which was built in 2016, offers a variety of coffee and other beverage mixes including Espresso, Cappuccino, Mochacino, Latte, Ginger Coffee and Chinamon Coffee (Cinnamon) and also other drinks. the concept of drinking coffee in the coffee garden, is something unique, and can be a vehicle for education for visitors, because besides enjoying coffee you can also see the Arabica coffee tree which is a mainstay commodity of the district.
The owner of this place is a Gayo young man named Sahru Iman, said that Coffee Gallery does not offer good coffee. Because whether or not delicious coffee is relative. But he offers healthy coffee at the Coffee Gallery.
This friendly man who has been worried about coffee from upstream to downstream tells the story of a visitor who was reluctant to sip coffee here because he had stomach pain. Sahru replied to the visitor to drink coffee from his hand and guaranteed not to affect his stomach acid. Despite having stomach problems, he immediately became a fan of Gayo coffee.
