BorBor coffee
BorBor coffee variety on Java Sunda area

BorBor is a  local Sumatra  selection of Timor Hybrid, possibly crossed with Bourbon, and also possibly referred to as Gayo 2 (Gayo Dua). In Aceh it does not seem to be widely planted: I actually did not encounter a single “BorBor” tree on 3 trips to Aceh. However some say BorBor is the same as Gayo 2, and that it is a Timor Hybrid x Bourbon cross. It is a selection from the field though, not a plant breeding program, so it it unclear how a claim of particular genetics can be supported
