Our annual luncheon is our singular fundraiser of the year. The event provides a platform to share updates about our work and honor our Leadership Medal of Merit recipient, CQI’s most prestigious award. It’s also a time when friends gather to connect and new friendships are made, as everyone in the room shares one passion: high quality coffee.


Please show your support for us in Seattle, Washington on Saturday, April 22nd for our 19th Annual CQI Luncheon. You’ll be able to mingle with friends and colleagues, learn about current programs and trends in specialty coffee, and see the presentation of this year’s Leadership Medal of Merit award, honoring Steve Walls for his life-long commitment to improving agricultural value chains, specifically in coffee.
