A note from CQI CEO Tina Yerkes, PhD

Like all our friends and partners around the globe, staff at CQI are watching world events and taking the steps necessary to stay safe and healthy. As a virtual organization we are continuing to work on behalf of coffee communities around the globe and throughout the coffee value chain. We are, however, following all local health advisories and not travelling or gathering with others.

Over the last couple of months, we have been working with our colleagues in areas of the world that have already been affected, and we will continue to make sure we maintain communications and provide support as the situation evolves.

I want to encourage anyone who has questions about curriculum or certification to contact CQI. The easiest way to get to the right staff member is to reach out through info@coffeeinstitute.org. Your question will be forwarded to the best person to get you a prompt answer.

Coffee people have been resilient through any number of challenges, and I know we will get through this one working together.
