WCR releases new coffee varieties poster

Today, World Coffee Research is releasing a poster celebrating key coffee varieties from around the world. The poster is available for free download on WCR’s website, including both digital and print-ready files for U.S. and European standard poster sizes.

The poster visually represents the lineage and relatedness of different coffee varieties included in the World Coffee Research Coffee Varieties Catalog, which profiles over 100 coffee varieties from the two species of cof­fee plants that are in wide cul­ti­va­tion glob­al­ly—C. ara­bi­ca (known as Ara­bi­ca), and C. canepho­ra (known as Robusta). The poster and catalog covers common varieties from 22 countries. The poster, like the catalog it’s based on, is meant to be a prac­ti­cal tool and guide for cof­fee pro­duc­ers, and it does not aim to rep­re­sent an exhaus­tive list of all cof­fee vari­eties or species in exis­tence.

The visualization was developed by design agency webDNA to accompany the re-design and re-launch of the World Coffee Research Coffee Varieties Catalog earlier this year.

The poster is free for anyone to download and print (print-ready versions for common US and European paper sizes are available) under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives (CC BY-NC-ND 4.0) International Public License.
