Seit dem 01. Januar 2017 ist aus der 1982 gegründeten Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA) und der 1998 gegründeten Speciality Coffee Association of Europe (SCAE) offiziell eine Organisation geworden:
The Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) is a membership-based association built on foundations of openness, inclusivity, and the power of shared knowledge. From coffee farmers to baristas and roasters, our membership spans the globe, encompassing every element of the coffee value chain. SCA acts as a unifying force within the specialty coffee industry and works to make coffee better by raising standards worldwide through a collaborative and progressive approach. Dedicated to building an industry that is fair, sustainable, and nurturing for all, SCA draws on years of insights and inspiration from the specialty coffee community.
„If your business is coffee, then this is the place for you. Explore, collaborate, progress and inspire as we build a sustainable future for coffee, today.“
