Coffee Quality Institute

Our mission is to improve the quality of coffee and the lives of those who produce it.

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. CQI is a 501 (c) (3)

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.
