Your morning cup of Joe may be hard to come by in a few years' time.
Arabica plants contribute to more than half the world's commercial coffee production. According to a study published by researchers at the Royal Botanic Gardens in the U.K. and the Environment and Coffee Forest Forum in Ethiopia, a changing climate could have a negative impact on the temperature-sensitive plant, rendering its natural habitat extinct by 2080.
Researchers have also predicted a "best-case" scenario, which predicts a 38% loss of habitable space.
The study notes that the findings are "conservative" because it focuses on loss of land and does not consider other factors that could impact on the plants, such as pests and disease.
The findings have been published online in the peer-reviewed journal PLOS One.
