Ethiopian Coffee Producers: Uneasy, But Not Too Uneasy

In the country of coffee’s birth, there are more than 5 million producers … and 20 times more consumers. Ethiopian coffee is doing fairly well, except that the current crisis affecting all the world’s producers and the international fall in prices means excellent profits are far from guaranteed. The health “wars” might also be mentioned, focusing on the always scientifically proven benefits or dangers competed for by coffee and its great rival tea, via the intermediary of powerful lobbying groups; of course, it goes without saying that the two are not mutually exclusive … We can continue to drink coffee and still enjoy a good tea just as much, without giving rise to denominational schisms or having our souls split into two heaps of warm ectoplasm.
