QUESTION: Where and when was coffee rust first discovered, according to the Colombian Coffee Hub’s column in the August+September issue?

Rust blows. I took this photo in El Salvador in January of 2012. It devastated an enormous amount of the coffee growing areas of Central America in 2012, the results of which coffee retailers will feel big time this next year.
