Does the flavor of the coffee affected by the altitude of the location grown?

Although the geography location of coffee grown is in the tropical, but the altitude of the location might affect the flavors. According to the post “The Effect of Altitude on Coffee Flavor”, the altitude of which coffee is grown contributes significantly to a coffee’s taste profile. I never did included altitude as a factor of the flavors until I read the post. I do believe the soil and water of the location grown affects the flavor. Well, there’s only one way to find out if it’s true or not. We just have to go ahead and taste the coffee with different altitude. It will be better to make sure that the soil and water is the same so that we only have altitude as variable to really confirm that altitude affects the flavor. There is a chart in the post above which explains the flavors with different altitude. It seems that the flavor of the coffee taste better in a higher altitude.
