With the different factors that affect the growth all over the world, scientists are now looking for ways to save the crop. Recently, Centroamericano and seven other new hybrid coffee varieties are slowly being introduced to the market.
They might not be a popular coffee variety yet, like the ones people normally order at their favorite coffee shops, but these kinds are the coolest.
Centroamericano can withstand the effects of climate change, which is one of the most common factors why coffee crops die. See, coffee requires specific temperatures to flourish.
Doug Welsh, vice president of Peet’s coffee, a company which has invested in the World Coffee Research, said that coffee is still not ready to adapt to climate change without help.
The WCR kicked off with 46 new coffee varieties that will soon change the coffee growing game.
