Q Coffee System
CQI developed the Q Coffee System, now for both Arabica and Robusta, to reinforce and uphold the standards of specialty coffee as defined by the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA), which has been setting quality standards within the coffee trade for 26 years. The Q Coffee System is internationally recognized and utilized as the primary instrument that supports SCAA standards.
Coffee Corps is a unique private-public partnership that matches experts in the industry with farmers and associations at origin seeking technical assistance. These individuals volunteer their own time in order to help producers improve their production methods, quality control processes or marketing.
Women in Coffee
Launched in 2005, the Women in Coffee Leadership Program was originally developed as a yearlong initiative to connect women from different sectors of the coffee industry. This program was designed to develop the diverse talents of women within the industry, strengthening their leadership and technical skills so that they could become stronger and more effective leaders in their home countries and take on broader leadership roles in the global coffee community.
