Between 2011 and 2018, the price of coffee in global markets dropped from nearly $2.80 a pound to $1.12 a pound, leading a number of coffee farmers to leave behind coffee cultivation. At the same time, it's predicted that by 2050, close to 50% of the world’s land used to produce high-quality coffee could be unproductive due to climate change. These numbers speak to the stark economic and environmental sustainability challenges that the coffee industry faces.
