Summary of Survey Results on Coffee Leaf Rust (La Roya)

In February 2013, the Sustainability and Coffee Departments at Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc. (GMCR) teamed up to conduct a survey of our supply chain partners to learn about how rust was affecting producers in their network and to understand the household-level impacts of the rust epidemic.

Roya Survey Results Summary

A. Background

A twenty-four question survey about the impacts of the Coffee Leaf Rust fungus, or “la roya,” was
developed in Spanish by the Supply Chain Outreach team in the web-based Survey Monkey tool:
https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/BFDLNXK

The survey was sent out to three GMCR distribution lists: (1) the Supply Chain Outreach team sent the
survey to key contacts of social projects in coffee-growing communities (principally coops and NGOs)
and (2) the Coffee Department sent the Spanish survey to key contacts of their suppliers (principally
coops and importers), and (3) the Coffee Department sent a condensed, English version to importers.

The Spanish version of the survey was sent on Monday, February 8, 2013 and there were 96 responses
as of February 28, 2013. There were 15 responses to the English version of the survey. Each question
below indicates if the responses represent the complete set of responses (111) or a subset of responses
that were in Spanish (96).
