Climate Change Could Render Coffee Obsolete By 2080
Enjoy your coffee while you can.
“The worst case scenario is that wild Arabica could be extinct by 2080,” one of the researchers is quoted as saying in the Telegraph.
That might not be so bad given that there is another species of coffee beans, Robusta, which is commonly found in freeze-dried coffee.
Unfortunately, Arabica beans make up 70 percent of the global coffee market and are the only beans used to make the fresh coffee you have at home or anything that you would find at your local Starbucks.
