SCA Podcast #25: Guatemala After the Fuego Eruption

On June 3rd, an unexpected eruption of the Fuego volcano in Guatemala killed more than a hundred people and caused many more to evacuate. Guatemala is home to tens of thousands of smallholder coffee farms, many of which have been directly affected.

A few weeks ago, Kim Elena Ionescu, SCA’s Chief Research Officer, spoke to Alejandro Molina, Sustainability and Market Access Coordinator at ANACAFE, Guatemala’s national coffee association. They spoke on the phone about the eruptions and of what will be required to rebuild the lives and businesses of the farmers affected.
