Multi-Location Variety Trials (MLVT)
Featuring an Interview with Hanna Neuschwander
Not every terroir suits every plant strain. Prior to 2012, there had never been any comprehensive attempt at selecting the best-quality coffee seed and making it available around the world. The World Coffee Research (WCR) organization has attempted to correct this with their Multi-Location Variety Trials (MLVT) that are now operating in 24 countries. WCR collected 31 top-performing varieties with highly rated sensory profiles and resistance to diseases and pests.
