World Coffee Research
The mission of World Coffee Research (WCR) is to grow, protect, and enhance supplies of quality coffee while improving the livelihoods of the families who produce it.
WCR is an industry-driven agricultural research organization focused on unlocking the promise of improved coffee varieties.
Research is an essential basis for improving the ‘goodness’ of coffee: how good it tastes, how good it is for the planet, and how good it is for people who grow it. The coffee we drink today is the result of research conducted in the past. The coffee we drink tomorrow will be the result of research conducted today.
WCR works urgently to make better plants available and accessible to farmers to enhance coffee productivity, profitability, quality, and climate resilience. In particular, WCR supports the professionalization of nurseries and seed systems, conduct variety trials, and accelerate breeding system modernization.
