As of January 2017, the Specialty Coffee Association of America, established in 1982, the Specialty Coffee Association of Europe, established in 1998, and World Coffee Events (WCE) have officially become one organization. The unified organization, the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA), represents thousands of coffee professionals, from producers to baristas all over the world. Built on foundations of openness, inclusivity, and the power of shared knowledge, we act as a unifying force within the Specialty Coffee industry – invested in creating a worldwide circle of like-minded professionals.

Unified but not uniform, we celebrate and nurture diversity. We understand the importance of local knowledge and strive to connect every individual with the resources to improve their opportunities and make their voice heard on a global stage.
Representing a global pool of experience and talent, we are our members and together we work towards a better, more sustainable future for each and every one of us – wherever in the world we are.
