What is the primary danger to coffee production?

Limited resources: Economic growth combined with population growth put increased demands on land, energy and water.

  • Migration: Younger generations are moving to more reliable jobs in cities.
  • Urbanization: Population growth is encroaching on traditional coffee farming regions, such as Arusha, Tanzania; San Jose, Costa Rica; and Antigua, Guatemala.
  • Climate change: Extreme weather events and unpredictable precipitation patterns amplify a number of climate pressures, adding to production uncertainty.
