About the SCAA
For more than a quarter of a century, the SCAA has inspired specialty coffee professionals in their quest to learn, grow and collaborate for the betterment of the specialty coffee industry.
We offer our members every opportunity for success through education, training, resources and business services. This focus has enabled the association to grow into the world’s largest coffee trade association, with members representing more than 40 countries and every segment of the specialty coffee industry, from growers to roasters and retailers.
Even in challenging times, the SCAA remains focused on what we love . . . coffee. It is at the heart of what we do, and the knowledge that it brings great pleasure to millions of people, gives us the incentive to continue to work with our members to improve the livelihood of those involved in coffee around the world.
Together with our members, we will ensure coffee, and the people involved in coffee, may reach its fullest potential.
