The altitude at which coffee is grown influences its flavour profile. Higher altitudes, typically above 1,200 meters, subject the coffee plants to cooler temperatures and greater stress, resulting in slower bean development. This extended maturation period allows the sugars to develop more fully, resulting in greater complexity of flavours, higher acidity, and often a more desirable and nuanced cup.
