Good coffee and the farmers who grow it are under siege in Central America. Behind every cup of coffee made from the world-famous Arabica coffee bean are farmers and farm workers whose lives depend on this crop. But the coffee crop is sick with a fungus called “coffee rust.”  CRS is there helping farmers overcome the blight and find new crops to farm.

Listen to CRS’ Daniel McQuillan explain the situation by clicking on the media player below.

    That’s awful news for the farmers. I feel for them as I know their livelihood is based on that crop. I hope something changes fast!
