Founded in 1996, the Coffee Quality Institute (CQI) is a nonprofit organization working internationally to improve the quality of coffee and the lives of the people who produce it. CQI offers training and support to Arabica and Robusta coffee producers, and other individuals in the supply chain, to increase coffee quality, value, and production. Our programs, business solutions and innovative approaches to economic sustainability allow producers to not only improve their income today but also make investments for the future of their households and communities.
