dc.description.abstractAn increasing interest in geographical indications of origin (GIs) as a tool of productdifferentiation can be observed in the so-called specialty coffee sector. Similar to theapproach for wine in France and Italy, more and more coffee-producing countries try toestablish appellations systems for coffee. Whereas some countries and regions suchas Colombia or Jamaica have already legally protected GIs for coffee, most coffee GIsare still informal meaning that no legal protection has been obtained so far. But therecent acceptation of the term Café de Colombia as a Protected GeographicalIndication (PGI) in the EU and the Ethiopian Trademark Initiative document theincreasing engagement of coffee-producing countries to achieve an appropriate legalprotection for their GIs. From an economic point of view, data from US online retailstores indicate that single-origin coffees receive significant higher retail prices, with100% Kona coffee from Hawaii and Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee being the mostexpensive ones. Furthermore, results from a hedonic pricing model based on internetauction data for single-origin coffees show that the country and the region of origin isalready an important determinant of prices paid by importers and roasters.en_US
