Climate Change Threatens World Coffee Supply

coffee beans climate change

In an interview with the Guardian, Jim Hanna, Starbucks’s sustainability director warned that climate change will possibly lead to a serious threat to the supply of Arabica coffee beans.

“What we are really seeing as a company as we look 10, 20, 30 years down the road – if conditions continue as they are – is a potentially significant risk to our supply chain, which is the Arabica coffee bean,” Hanna said.

Scientists say climate change will cause heavier rains, longer periods of drought, and higher rates of insect infestation in the tropical areas where coffee is grown, which could have a devastating effect on future coffee production.

This is the second time this month that scientists have warned that climate change threatens a popular food item. A few weeks ago we were told that climate could lead to chocolate shortage.

If you’re a coffee lover, you have one more reason to try and live a more eco-friendly lifestyle!
