Ethiopian Coffee Under Threat

The world’s top coffee producer is currently experiencing difficult times. In addition to security concerns the country is contending with the withdrawal of US customs advantages and a phytosanitary threat that could upset coffee plant production in the south of the country. However, “Ethiopia has weathered storms before” and global consumption is still creating high demand; the country that brought the emblematic drink into the world will surely be able to get through this crisis, as Adugna Debela, director general of the Tea and Coffee Authority declared: “Our exports haven’t been affected [by the ongoing conflict]”, to which he added: “there is no problem in  Djibouti port and the Addis-Ababa-Djibouti road is working peacefully.”
