How the altitude influences the taste of coffee

Today I learned that the taste of coffee is influenced by heigh elevation it was grown at. The higher coffee beans are grown, the slower they grow. This causes them to produce more lactate and the coffee beans to become denser. Which is said to improve the taste of a coffee.

I came across that when watching some TED talk about coffee. I’m not a coffee drinker myself but it never hurts to know more. I definitely recommend you to watch the video if you are interested in the topic, because there is way more to the taste of coffee than this detail.
