Q&A with Tim Schilling, World Coffee Research
As we prepare for their next #CropsInColor trip, Crop Trust talked to Dr. Tim Schilling about WCR, coffee and the future.
A scientist and development expert with a long history in helping establish research programs in Africa and Latin America, Tim is known in coffee industry circles as the man who brought widespread attention to the fact that coffee was an orphan crop: “grown in poor countries, consumed in rich countries, and researched in neither”. He took it upon himself to change this, and in 2012 spearheaded the creation of WCR. - LM Salazar
