Indonesia
An Indonesia coffee farmer

In Indonesia, coffee prices have become so uncertain that many farmers have started growing citrus instead of coffee. Citrus is less profitable, but prices are more reliable for most families who rely on their farms for 30-40% of their income. For farmers who rely only on coffee for income, the situation is more dire: they are only able to afford the most basic items and struggle to provide. At the mercy of merciless market forces, coffee farmers in Indonesia face an uncertain future.
