Meet the Publisher
Michael Allen Smith started the coffee website INeedCoffee in April 1999 and began publishing articles related to coffee farming shortly afterwards. After 15 years of extensive contributions, it was decided the agricultural section was strong enough to warrant its own website.
With Dr. Pereira’s permission the site was named after his textbox EcoFriendly Coffee.
