Global Warming and Coffee Production

Coffee is known to be an all time favorite relaxing and refreshing drink of people in the western countries as well as people in India. In India, coffee is believed to be the traditional drink. Coffee producers have been seen complaining of late about Global Warming affecting the growth of their coffee crops. As the temperature is becoming higher and higher, the coffee producers say that the coffee crops are going at a risk of being highly priced.

There is an International Coffee Organization (ICO) that has 77 countries registered under it. The committee for this organization is in charge of the import and export of coffee beans.

Coffee is a drink that is a favorite drink of all and contributes to major part of export to many countries like Brazil, Indonesia, etc. But of late the coffee producers have been very keen about Global warming affecting their crops and thereby in turn affecting their livelihood.

The International Coffee Organization (ICO) is now trying to make assessment for guaranteeing the sustainability and the rise in demand for the production of coffee. It is being seen that there is a huge raise in the demand for available resources between the energy firms and the farmers. There is huge amount of competition for land and water and this competition is by producers of energy and producers of food.

In Latin America, the production of coffee crops declined to a large extent because of the poor climatic conditions. The coffee producers in Latin America have given a statement which says that they are hostile to stay buoyant.

Colombia is again known for its coffee production. They are known to be one of the largest coffee producers in the world. The production in Colombia dropped 30-35 percent. In places like EI Salvador and Costa Rica, there was very poor growth of coffee crops between the years 2000 and 2005. The producers have still not been able to cope up with the heavy losses that they incurred in the years 2000-2005.

There is an association called the National Coffee Association, which is located at Guatemala. In Latin America, there are about nine countries that are expected to suffer from loss due to poor harvest of coffee crops. The expected fall in these coffee producing countries is about 28 percent that will be seen in the first couple of months of the harvesting season.
