Friday video: Sustainable coffee

It’s Friday, and whenever we can we like to finish off the working week with a short video that looks at some aspect of agriculture or biodiversity. This week we have found a short video that looks at coffee.

Coffee is one of the biggest cash crops in the world.  This video focuses on how coffee demand, markets, fair trade and sustainable farming practices all work towards improving livelihoods of farmers in over 60 developing countries.

Please let us know what your thoughts are on the topic.
