START is designed to be applicable to all coffee professionals regardless of what part of the coffee chain you're focused on. Producers, importer/exporters, roasters and retailers are all encouraged to participate. We are currently launching a concentrated effort at retail, however that does not exclude any other business or entity; the only qualification is that your business be within the coffee industry.
There is a minimal annual fee to gain full access to the START database & all of its capabilities. SCAA Members enjoy a 50% discount on these annual dues. To join, simply click the 'Become a START User' button to the right on this page.

Any SCAA member company who purchases a copy of Module 1 of the Green Guide (Energy) will recieve a complimentary 1-year subscription to the energy edition of START. This version of the database offers the tools needed to track your progress against Green Guide energy saving tips.
At first, learning a new system can seem daunting. Although we've designed START to be as user friendly as possible, there are also several resources to reference as you're getting familar with the database & its capabilities:
| a step by step document that outlines how to access your account, enter data and analyze results.
| a series of short videos focused on visual training resources to guide you along the way.
