Lousy Coffee is Coming Thanks to Global Warming

Green coffee for weight loss

Over at Businessweek there's a great article on the future of coffe and it's a bit lousy. Another Reason to Hate Global Warming: Lousy Coffee has informed the entire staff here at Single Serve Coffee that by 2080 we'll need to switch to another hot beverage to enjoy in the morning. What's the deal? 

A recently published scientific study concludes that as much as 99.7 percent of wild Arabica coffee—the bean that accounts for 70 percent of the global market—may fall victim to rising temperatures by 2080. Farmers will still be able to cultivate Arabica coffee—at least for a while—but the bean’s genetic pool will be severely reduced. 

Well perhaps they can somehow keep up the genetic diversity and maybe over the next 60+ years make the coffee tolerate the rising temperatures. Who knows but I'd like to think our kids will make the coffee choice over taste and not because it's just lousy.
