    Default Global Warming Puts Arabica Coffee At Risk

    New Daily
    October 14 2022

    Coffee may be a major casualty of a hotter planet.
    Even if currently declared commitments to reduce emissions are met, our new research suggests coffee production will still rapidly decline in countries accounting for 75 per cent of the world’s Arabica coffee supply.
    Arabica coffee (Coffea arabica) is one of two main plant species we harvest coffee beans from. The plant evolved in the high-altitude tropics of Ethiopia, and is hypersensitive to changes in the climate.

    Our research shows there are global warming thresholds beyond which Arabica coffee production plummets.
    This isn’t just bad news for coffee lovers – coffee is a multibillion-dollar industry supporting millions of farmers, most in developing countries.
    If we manage to keep global warming below 2 degrees Celsius this century, then producers responsible for most global Arabica supply will have more time to adapt.
