The impact of Covid-19 on the coffee industry has caused undeniable changes across diverse industries, sectors, nations, and other segments. However, although many across the coffee supply chain has been affected in some capacity, precisely that effect varies from country to country.
Every coffee-producing country across the world has had its own experience of the Covid-19 pandemic. In general, while consuming countries have predominantly been affected through café closures and changes in home coffee consumption, producing countries like ours, Ethiopia has largely seen the following effects: contract cancellations, labor shortages, logistical delays, fluctuating production costs, and shifts in market demand.
