In the Netherlands we drink quite a few cups of coffee each day: 3.7 cups per person per day on average. That makes us one of the top three coffee users in the world. Whereas the demand for coffee is increasing, the production of coffee is threatened by climate change. Solidaridad warns coffee lovers. Crops fail because of temperature rises, diseases, drought and soil erosion, which is caused by torrential rains – coffee plants are very susceptible to weather conditions. The results of climate change are an everyday reality for an increasing number of coffee farmers. The consequences? In 2050, the land suitable for farming coffee will be halved and in turn the prices will rise dramatically.
