Our challenges

Challenges today, opportunities tomorrow.

Innovation solves critical challenges and creates new and unimagined opportunities.

60% of global coffee supply comes from smallholder farmers.1

Farmers who have access to tools, technology, and knowledge are more likely to be profitable and to stick with farming.

5 countries produce 74% of the world’s coffee2

The world’s coffee supply is consolidating. Thriving origin diversity brings the economic benefits of coffee to farmers in more countries and gives roasters choices.

Coffee faces a $452 million/year innovation crisis3

To prevent supply instability, consolidation, and loss we need $452 million more per year to be invested in coffee agricultural R&D.

We are facing supply shortages of millions of bags4 as soon as 20305

Estimated demand for coffee is steadily increasing while climate change puts more pressure on landscapes. More productive varieties can help us meet the challenge.
