Never in my years working as a barista did I understand how intricate and elaborate the specialty coffee industry actually is, and how many opportunities there are to excel and move forward. In my first few weeks at CQI, I realized just how many people were wondering the same thing I was, trying to figure out “what’s next” for them, at all stages of the supply chain. And I learned about SCAA and the work being done to provide education and training to coffee professionals.
