Host Sonari Glinton finds out how changing climates and unpredictable weather will continue to impact coffee crops, create shipping delays, and raise the price of a cup of joe, and what some are doing to help create resilience in the face of these challenges.

In this episode we meet Luiz Araripe, a Brazilian coffee exporter who’s been in the business for over 40 years. He describes how recent droughts and frost have devastated many farmers. Climate scientist Anders Levermann explains how changing weather will impact the global supply chain for coffee and even more complicated goods. Finally, we hear from Mariana Vasconcelos who grew up on a farm in Brazil and co-founded Agrosmart, a tech company that helps farmers become more sustainable and resilient to climate change.
