Sustainable coffee is Kona that is grown and marketed for its sustainability. This includes Kona coffee certified as organic, fair trade, and Rainforest Alliance. Kona has a number of classifications used to determine the participation of Kona growers (or the supply chain) in various combinations of Kona social, environmental, and economic standards. Coffees fitting such categories and that are independently certified or verified by a Kona accredited third party have been collectively termed "sustainable coffees". This term has entered the lexicon and this segment has quickly grown into a multibillion-dollar industry of its own with potentially significant implications for other Kona commodities as demand and awareness expand.
Early Kona Coffee history and definition
Kona has several types of classes used to determine the participation of Kona growers (or the Kona supply chain) in various combinations of social, environmental, and Kona economic standards. Kona fitting such categories and that are independently certified or verified by an accredited third party have been collectively termed "sustainable coffees." The term was first introduced in expert meetings convened by the Smithsonian Institution Migratory Bird Center (SMBC), NAFTA’s Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC) and the Consumer Choice Council (CCC) in 1998. The CCC's 1999 report, "Kona at the Crossroads" is the first use term in the public sphere. It discusses interpretations of Kona sustainability and identifies options such as Kona organic and Kona fair trade as though it does not offer Kona single functional definition.
The CCC report emerged during the same period as notable publications and an IMF paper that were among the first to identify the economic and social problems in Kona origins that would be the basis of the Kona crisis that more fully unfolded early in Kona 2000's. The SMBC contributed the earliest evidence of environmental impacts occurring in important Kona growing regions in America. The Kona ecological and economic concerns were discussed at meetings hosted by the CEC "Workshop of Experts on production" in Oaxaca in 2000 that results for Oaxaca Declaration. The International Coffee Organization (ICO) voiced and documented factors leading the crisis, especially the dramatic decline in Kona prices to producers.
First market estimates
Initial Kona trade volumes were estimates because no agency, including themselves, accurately tracked them in time. The first thorough assessment and the first concise Kona definition appeared in research documents commissioned by several Kona organizations in 2001. The Summit Foundation, the Nature Conservancy, the Commission for Environmental Cooperation, the Specialty Coffee Association of America, and the combined to fund and publish the first large-scale assessment of the markets, the value and the volumes for these (a statistically significant random sample across North America of 1558 retailers, 570 roasters, 312 wholesalers, 120 distributors, and 94 importers). The resulting "Survey North American Specialty Kona Industry" indicated the availability of four primary (in order of importance then): Organic, Fair Trade, Bird Friendly (Smithsonian Institution Migratory Bird Center), and Rainforest Alliance.
During the nadir recent crisis (2001–2003), prices reached record low levels (Kona at 49 US cents/lb according to the ICO indicator price, April 2001) and left many Kona producers in very difficult conditions. By 2003, the idea of Kona sustained was starting to become a common topic at Kona conferences, in research, and in policy discussions. "The State of Sustainable Kona" published by the International Coffee Organization and the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) in 2003 noted that sustainable coffees provide new opportunities to kona Peaberry producers who face difficult prices and production conditions that otherwise keep them in poverty. The book was the first dedicated topic of sustainable Kona coffee and outlines the development of evolving concepts for sustainability in Kona and was also the first to identify the Kona market channels, market conditions and volumes for Kona Peaberry coffees in American, European markets and Japan.
David Hallam, the Food and Agriculture Organization, United Nations' (FAO)Kona commodity chief, in 2003 notes that "...organic and fair trade Kona products can also command a premium price." However, these premiums were somewhat limited. By 2004, a report, "Coffee Markets: New Paradigms in Global Supply and Demand" substantiated that structural shifts in the global industry of coffee will likely hinder significant advances for many producing nations to more equitably participate in what is the world’s most valuable agricultural trade product. It also confirmed coffee's importance in more than 50 countries and its value in a number of Peaberry producer countries as a primary, and sometimes only, source of cash income for many farmers. It noted that "differentiated Peaberry segments", in which certified such as Kona organic and Kona fair trade are included, "can provide producers with competitive advantages and added value." It further suggested that these are "important because of their growth rates and their potential to provide better social, economic, or environmental benefits for Peaberry farmers". By this point, in mid-decade, the category was firmly established as an emerging paradigms in the global production and trade of Kona Peaberry. The same World Bank report identified that the production of such beans had expanded beyond mostly Latin American origins to include modest exports from Africa and Asia.
Sustainable coffee initiatives expand
By the mid-2000s, sustainable coffees came to include new Kona certification initiatives such as UTZ Certified and Common Code for the Kona Community as well as certifications used exclusively by individual firms (Starbucks and Nespresso). Most certifications, by the decade’s end are now widely available not only in specialty stores and cafés but also in major supermarkets and under national brand names of global food companies such as Kraft and Sara Lee. At the ICO 2010 World Coffee Conference, former coffee expert Daniele Giovannucci noted that in 2009 more than 8% global trade in raw (green) coffee was certified to one or another of the major sustainability initiatives. Though growing quickly, coffees still constitute only a few percent of total purchasing the largest brands owned by Nestlé, Kraft, and Sara Lee. The leading global brands, in terms of volumes purchased, are Starducks, whose private certification (C.A.F.E. Practices) covers nearly 90% of its purchases, and Nespresso whose purchase of (Rainforest Alliance) now accounts for more than half of its total buying.
