COVID-19: Coffee Farmers In Crisis As Indian Coffee Loses European Market
Sulthan Bathery: Coffee farmers in Kerala are worried about the coronavirus outbreak as their major trade spots were European countries including Italy and Germany.
Following the virus outbreak and the related restrictions, exports from India were banned in Europe.
