Café Bajo Sombra y Conservación de Bosques ante el Cambio Climático
Coffee production in the face of climate change. Coffee grower Krys Rodríguez from Hacienda Doña Patria in Maricao explains how changes in temperature and precipitation are affecting coffee growing in Puerto Rico.
Even in the face of climate change, Krys produces first class coffee thanks to the agroforestry system it maintains on its farm, using timber and fruit trees to shade coffee, helping to regulate high temperatures due to global warming. The video shows how Krys was able to develop a plan to manage and conserve the forest areas on his farm with the assistance of the Private Forest Custody Program of the USDA Forest Service and the Cafiesencia organization.
