“Climate change threatens the world´s coffee production. Coffee is in trouble and so are the farmer families who grow it.”

Since 2010, the initiative for coffee&climate (c&c) implements its vision to enable coffee farmers worldwide to adapt to climate change. Not only to save your daily cup of coffee, but also the operations of coffee farmers worldwide. With current commitments of coffee companies and public partners farming families will benefit from c&c activities. We work in the field together with smallholder coffee farmers, their families and communities, and local partners in a precompetitive way.
