Note about Gayo 1 and Gayo 2 variety. Gayo 1 – people name it as Timtim – is a hybrid arabica variety that usually produces larger than normal coffee beans year round. Due to the bigger size of the coffee cherries, sometimes farmer confused with long berry.  Timtim variety has received good cupping scores despite it being a newer arabica strain of Catimor variety. Timtim has been growing in Gayo since 1979. There are over 70 sub-varieties of Timtim grew by Gayonese farmer.  Gayo 2 is supposed to have TimTim and either Line-S (S-795) or Bourbon genetics. It originated in Gayo highland, in a particular farmer’s garden, Maisir Aman Al in Jongok Meluem Village Bandar District, Bener Meriah Regency. It was derived from 4 trees on his farm that were the progeny of a particular “mother tree” that had good production and resistance.
