Coffee flavour about to get worse courtesy of climate change?

About 70% of coffee is made from arabica coffee beans, however, climate change is threatening these so growers may have to switch to a hardier, but less tasty variety.

It might soon be time to stockpile that arabica based coffee!

Arabica, the species Martin grows, accounts for the majority of coffee beans traded globally, some 70%. But it is highly sensitive to changes in both temperature and humidity. For the last two years, production has failed to meet demand.

Very good. Coffee here tastes terrible and I am glad to hear that.

There's a large range of flavours between brands even though they mostly use the same beans, so I'm not surprised. I find that any variety of Nescafé is generally ok.
