While the core feature of the center is its strength in coffee science, the center will give back with outreach efforts. The center worked with agricultural communities of coffee producing countries to find solutions to their problems. There are over 25 million coffee farmers across the globe.
Outreach goals to assist these farmers include:
- Improve high quality coffee and the socio-economic status of the producers
- Develop analytical tools to improve the coffee economy worldwide
To achieve these goals, the center works collaboratively with other groups and institutions across the Texas A&M System. This is academically necessary and also essential for the financial sustainability of the center. Such ambitious efforts work must be supported by involvement in applications with entities that can manage large amounts of funding, such as the Borlaug Institute.
