The Coffee Quality Institute Annual Luncheon is a chance for the coffee industry to get learn more about CQI plans and achievements - while supporting the organization through ticket sales and sponsorships. This is a true CQI community event where the industry can take the opportunity to connect with familiar faces and network with new coffee professionals. Proceeds from the annual luncheon support coffee quality education through our Global Fund.
Luncheon traditionally takes place on the Saturday of the SCA Coffee EXPO. In 2022, CQI revamped this event by adding activities where attendees could interact with CQI “communities” to help attendees learn about all the ways we work to improve coffee quality and the lives of people who produce it.
There are a few ways to support or participate at the CQI luncheon:
Purchase individual tickets. Those are available for purchase here. Your ticket includes a strolling luncheon, an update on CQI accomplishments, plans for the future, and a chance to visit with staff and trustees in an interactive environment.
Become an event sponsor! It is a great way to host staff or guests while benefitting coffee education. With your sponsorship you will also receive different forms of recognition. Choose the level that best suits you and become part of our valued group of industry supporters.
Spread the word! Feel free to share our luncheon posts on social channels, extending the invitation to your coffee peers.
