Wake up! The world is almost out of coffee. Coffee is one of the most under-researched and under-innovated crops in the world.
Bells are ringing for the coffee plant and its farmers, facing pressures from climate change, lack of plant innovation and farm profitability.
Coffee demand is expected to double by 2050. Without R&D, a worldwide coffee shortage of 180 Million bags is inevitable. It could be the end of coffee as we know it.
For 10 years World Coffee Research has been match-making coffee plants to create climate resilient varieties, aka 'future-friendly' coffees.
Via project "no death to coffee", Single O is the first roaster to bring future-friendly coffees to Australia, supporting a brighter future for coffee and farmers alike.
To keep coffee flowing, keep coffee growing. It takes a whole lot of collaboration to enhance farmer livelihoods and ensure coffee's future.
We’re helping spread the word to other roasters and importers to put their money where their coffee is by joining the WCR’s Checkoff Program and donating a small amount per kilo of green coffee that they buy.
Via "no death to coffee", Single O has ignited the conversation locally about coffee's future and introduced WCR to over 50 Australian roasters in October.
Single O bought some of the world's first future-friendly coffees from Aida Batlle.
Single O roasts the future-friendly coffee for their cafe's and sells to customers like Three Blue Ducks.
