How Much Do You Know About Coffee?
September 10, 2019
Coffee is one of the world’s most popular beverages – but how much do you actually know about it? Take our quiz to test your coffee knowledge ahead of National Coffee Day.
World coffee consumption increased by over two percent in the last year, coming in at over 164 million bags. However, despite this increase in consumption, the smallholder farmers who grow the majority of the world’s coffee still face significant challenges, including low prices, limited technical knowledge, lack of access to quality supplies, and inability to enter premium markets.
Despite these challenges, coffee production has tremendous potential to lift individuals and entire communities out of poverty, especially in areas where supply costs and productivity are relatively low.
Over the last 50 years, TechnoServe has worked with over 400,000 coffee farmers in 16 countries to increase their coffee income through improved productivity, coffee quality, and access to premium markets.
