Coffee farming adapts in the face of climate change


“We love to grow coffee,” said Monge, 37, a small-holder farmer who delivers his coffee to Coopetarrazu, a local co-op that sells to Starbucks. “All that we have here — our car, our house, our education — everything comes from the coffee.” Which is why Monge is so concerned about how climate change is impacting his crop.

The truth is, sometimes I fear that we Pacific Islanders are the closest thing to those canaries. True, we are not choking on poisonous gases, but we are cornered and caged by incremental sea level rise, high tides that reach farther inland than ever before and saltwater intrusion. We do not drop dead like the canaries, but we brace ourselves for hurricanes that have become more frequent and stronger.
