What do you think are the benefits of the Q Processing Program?

Simply put: Coffee processing is a function of the upstream business to produce a product. The Q Processing program not only lays the foundation in coffee processing for industry professionals, but also educates them on ways to asses the risks associated with each method in order to facilitate a better framework for experimentation, innovation and overall success.

I highly recommend industry professionals from around the world to volunteer for CQI's Coffee Corps program. It's a fantastic opportunity for giving back to the industry and for self development.
