World Coffee Research

On October 30, 2010, a wildly diverse group of coffee professionals from around the world gathered in College Station, Texas, to decide whether and how the coffee industry should support a global research and development program to increase supply and quality of Arabica coffees. After three days of thought- provoking discussion, the consensus was unanimous.

WCR is the 501 (c)(5) non-profit, collaborative research and development program of the global coffee industry to grow, improve, and protect supplies of quality coffee to fuel the growth of the dynamic coffee industry that directly affects the livelihoods of over 100 million people globally. The program is funded and driven by the global coffee industry, guided by producers, executed by renowned scientists and managed by the Norman Borlaug Institute for International Agriculture of the Texas A&M University System.

World Coffee Research will serve as the impetus and mechanism by which the supplies of Arabica coffees and the quality of those supplies will be increased through partnerships among origin countries, the coffee industry, producers, and national and international research and extension organizations.
