Coffee is one of the world’s favourite drinks, with over 400 billion cups consumed each year.

It is made from the roasted seeds of coffee (Coffea) plants.

Whilst there are 124 species of coffee, arabica is the most widely used in your morning brew.

Scientists at Kew have found that wild arabica coffee is endangered, mainly due to deforestation and climate change.

It is vital we protect wild species from extinction, to sustain the future of our precious cup of coffee.

The arabica coffee plant is a small tree that is between 2m and 8m tall and has evergreen, usually shiny leaves. The flowers are white and sweetly scented, and the fruits are red, but sometimes yellow or purple. Each fruit produces two green seeds, which are commonly known as coffee beans. After roasting, the seeds turn brown.

Beauty and cosmetics
Extracts from the coffee berry and unroasted coffee bean are found in many beauty products because they are rich in caffeine and other antioxidants that help care for your hair and skin. Antioxidants fight unstable atoms, known as free radicals, that are found naturally in the body or in the environment and damage cells.

Food and drink
The outer layer of coffee berries, the pulp, is edible and sweet tasting; it is used in a variety of foods. The seeds are roasted and used to make coffee but may also be used as a food source.

Caffeine from coffee beans is used as a stimulant and a diuretic.
Coffee is also used in many forms of traditional medicine in Africa and Asia for example, when treating ailments such as stomach ache, diarrhoea, and low blood pressure.
