For many farming families in Ecuador, it is a challenge to make a living from coffee. Production costs for coffee in Ecuador are among the highest in Latin America. It also requires a lot of patience and energy to bring a coffee plant to fruition, especially in the current climatic conditions.
For this reason, many farmers opt for monoculture of crops with a higher yield or for abandoning the farm in its entirety. Organic farming, which requires even more care, is often not even considered. This way, coffee cultivation contributes little to a fair food system. But it can be different. Good food is also possible thanks to good coffee.
