In a word yes. this article explains it much better than I can.
Extreme weather is affecting the cost of coffee. Between April 2020 and December 2021, coffee prices increased 70% after droughts and frost destroyed crops in Brazil, the world’s largest coffee-producing country. The economic ramifications could be profound, since it’s estimated that as many as 120 million of the world’s poorest depend on coffee production for their survival.
John Furlow, director of the Columbia Climate School’s International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI), said coffee farmers in places like Costa Rica and Jamaica can’t just move to higher elevations in response to warming temperatures.
“Think of a mountain as a cone,” said Furlow. “As you move up there’s less area, so that’s a risk.”
So less land that is capable of growing coffee means less coffee grown and available for purchase.
We have previously reported on the Stenophylla bean, which can grow in much more hostile climates than the world’s most popular Arabica bean. And, taste tests show it rivalling the Arabica, to the tester’s delight!
Perhaps with the climate mitigating crop management, along with more hearty bean varieties, we will still enjoy our coffee addiction for decades to come!!
