Climate Change could reduce coffee production in Brazil by 60%

A new study indicates that climate change could devastate coffee production in Brazil. The study’s models show that Brazil’s southeastern mountain areas of Matas de Minas Gerais, as well as Montanhas, do Espírito Santo, will be a lot warmer and drier in 2050. This will mean a 60% reduction in the area that is prime for coffee production. These areas produce over 20% of Brazil’s Arabiga coffee and this could severely impact thousands of livelihoods in a negative way.
