Abstract

This review explores the impact of climate change on coffee's biochemical composition and quality by synthesizing current literature. The investigation offers insights and recommendations for adaptation strategies to ensure the sustainability of the coffee industry. The analysis aims to assess how climate change affects the quality and biochemical makeup of coffee, as well as propose solutions for adaptation. By consolidating existing research on how climate change impacts coffee's biochemical composition and quality, it is apparent that changes in temperature and precipitation can alter coffee beans' chemical makeup, affecting their overall excellence. To mitigate these effects, various adaptation strategies such as implementing shade trees, drought-resistant varieties of coffee plants, improved irrigation techniques, and better post-harvest processing methods can be employed effectively. These strategies have been shown to ameliorate some negative repercussions from climate change on the production process significantly. Furthermore, this critique emphasizes the importance of inventive resolutions to address challenges faced by the coffee sector due to climate change. Additionally, genetic engineering methodologies or breeding programs may enhance both productivity levels and product quality; however safety concerns regarding their effectiveness remain a concern. To guarantee sustainable development within this industry expects stakeholders' collaboration towards developing socially acceptable innovative adaptations that respond appropriately against environmental shifts caused by global warming while maintaining secure business practices.
