Altitude

Higher elevations slow the ripening process of the coffee cherry and thus the development of sugars, resulting in a richer flavor profile and higher acidity. Temperatures at high elevations are lower than at valley elevations. At lower elevations, the cherries ripen much faster, so the coffees become less complex.

Arabica coffees achieve more complex flavor profiles due to lower temperatures.
