The Coffee Family Tree

The fourth edition of the Cafe Imports Coffee Family Tree is a massive collaborative effort that was intended not only to improve on the previous versions of the tree in terms of design, but also to provide more comprehensive and usable information about coffee varieties, genetics, and history, all on one beautiful poster.

Under the direction of Cafe Imports creative director Andy Reiland, tremendous amounts of research and fact-checking was conducted by Cafe Imports sensory analysis director Ian Fretheim, with editing and a final fact-check by Cafe Imports managing editor Ever Meister.

Sources include World Coffee Research, Coffee: Botany, Biochemistry and Production of Beans and Beverage by M.N. Clifford, A Reference Guide to Ethiopian Coffee Varieties by Getu Bekele and Timothy Hill, Espresso Coffee: The Science of Quality by Andrea Illy, and more.
