If you live in the United States, you may have just celebrated National Coffee Day, September 29. However, October 1 is International Coffee Day. With the COVID-19 pandemic still raging around the world, the coffee industry is among the many industries that have been disrupted, affecting the lives and incomes of coffee farming families around the world.
