Apart from everything else, if the dire predictions of global warming researchers hold true we may also be in for a big time shortage of the little magic beans. Coffee is pretty finicky crop and optimal growing conditions are not found all over the world. A study done forecasting various scenarios over an extended period mostly point to a rather dire future for our cup of joe.
While the most favourable scenario leaves coffee survivable – 62 percent of the areas now able to support it would survive – the worst-case model suggested that 97 percent of its range would no longer support the crop.
