Robusta to Get Its Due?

Over at Daily Coffee News, they have an article today about Uganda attempting to ramp up and improve Robusta coffee to the level of Arabica.

Given the heartiness of Robusta in comparison to Arabica, and the fact it will grow in more places, I have to agree with the idea.

However, will the snobs accept it?

Alas, check out the article. Its worth a read, even if it is a small indicator towards our changing world.

Will all Arabicas be treated like Blue Mountain or Kona in a decade or two of global warming?
