one way degassing valve said coffee bean altitude

Any bag of basic specialty coffee beans has the information about country of origin, coffee taste, or perhaps includes coffee farms name and roaster. If it’s a single producing area, one way degassing valve thinks the information of this bag also including the altitude of producing area.

However, what’s the meaning of “altitude”? For the coffee lover, consumer, even the raw bean purchaser and coffee roaster, why we concerned about the “altitude” of coffee beans?

If you ask barista, maybe he will tell you “the high altitude means the better quality of coffee”, in fact, it's not that simple. Let us discuss that what’s the meaning of “altitude”?

To a great extent, the temperature of coffee bean growing environment has decided the quality of coffee.

At relatively low temperature, the coffee tree grows more slowly, and the maturity period of the coffee cherries is relatively become longer, which means that the coffee cherries have more time to develop a more complex flavor.
