This shared responsibility is what makes their work so impactful.

The mission of WCR is to enhance the genetic diversity, productivity, and resilience of coffee plants while promoting sustainable farming practices and preserving the biodiversity of coffee-growing regions. WCR conducts research on coffee genetics, breeding, agronomy, and post-harvest practices to develop new coffee varieties, improve crop yields, and mitigate the impact of climate change and emerging pests and diseases.


Through collaborative partnerships and knowledge-sharing initiatives, WCR is making a significant difference in the lives of coffee farmers. It equips them with the tools, resources, and information needed to adapt to changing environmental conditions, increase productivity, and improve the quality of their crops. Additionally, WCR's support for equitable and transparent supply chains, farmer-led initiatives, and innovation and entrepreneurship empowers farmers and transforms the coffee industry.
