Heat-Tolerant Africa Coffee Strain Revived in Sierra Leone Pilot

Antony Sguazzin of Bloomberg reports on a heat-tolerant coffee strain in Sierra Leone.

The C3 Take
  • Future global temperature increases could threaten coffee growing in South America and Africa.
  • A pilot project in Sierra Leone has produced a variety of bean, Coffee Stenophylla, that tastes similar to Arabica and can be grown at temperatures that are 12.6° F warmer.
  • This breakthrough is good news for farmers and coffee lovers alike.

“The strain was rediscovered in the wild in 2018 after commercial production was disrupted by decades of neglect and a civil war. Beans from the variety were sold under the brand Sierra Leone Highland Coffee before World War I.”
