Our vision is an education system that will pave the path to self-sufficient, thriving, sustainable coffee communities by supporting a common language of coffee and the best scientific practices throughout the value chain to improve quality.
Producers' lives are enriched, they receive appropriate value for their specialty coffee, they are distinguished and respected in the market, and consumers appreciate the value and complexity of specialty coffee creating a strong market demand.
Through education and differentiation, CQI transforms the specialty and fine coffee market for the benefit of producers
- By disseminating and perpetuating a global, common language of coffee
- By providing holistic education throughout the value chain that empowers producers, improves quality and market value, and elevates consumer awareness.
- By creating and supporting market connections
