Established in 1982 by a small group of coffee professionals seeking a common forum to discuss issues and set quality standards for the specialty coffee trade, the SCAA is now the world's largest coffee trade association with nearly 3,000 company members. SCAA members can rightfully be credited for much of the growth and success the specialty coffee industry has experienced over the past twenty-five years. (5/14/12 from scaa.org)
The association provides its members with extensive educational opportunities for professional development, industry updates, and an annual exposition among many other opportunities available.
Here at Lizzy's, we're constantly learning, growing and improving our professional knowledge within the specialty coffee world, and the association has proven an invaluable partner in our journey.
