#CoffeePriceCrisis | An Interview with Vera Espindola Rafael and Peter Kettler

Today on the podcast we’re sharing the audio from an interactive webinar we hosted last week, part of our series on the Coffee Price Crisis.

SCA board member Vera Espindola Rafael and Fairtrade International’s Peter Kettler joined Vicente Partida for a discussion on issues related to farmer incomes, the work of Fairtrade, and research being conducted on costs of production. Vera and Peter also took questions from the audience.

What is the SCA doing about the coffee price crisis?

The SCA’s Price Crisis Response initiative, led by a team of staff and volunteers of the SCA’s Sustainability Center, is aimed at researching the crisis and providing recommendations for the specialty coffee industry. Over the past few months, the SCA has hosted a series of webinars and events to amplify the work being done in this field by individuals in the private sector, academia, producing countries, and others in the coffee community.
