European coffee association visiting Big Island


The Speciality Coffee Association of Europe’s (SCAE) annual coffee origin tour is coming to the Big Island Oct. 26-31.

The 40-nation SCAE organization established its origin trip program in 2002 to visit coffee producing countries, learn about their industry, cultivation and processing methods, regional coffee flavour characteristics and to identify potential trade partners. 

The program has since visited Brazil, El Salvador, Guatemala, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Colombia, Costa Rica and Panama. This will be the first SCAE-organized visit to Hawaii.

Approximately 20 delegates who represent leading European coffee importers, roasters, retail chains or other coffee industry businesses are expected to participate as members of the delegation.

Event sponsorships are available for Hawaii’s businesses or other entities that wish to receive promotional consideration by the SCAE during the visit.

The Speciality Coffee Association of Europe is Europe’s premier coffee trade association with members in more than 70 countries. The SCAE communicates the latest developments in the specialty coffee industry to its membership, conducts professional training and certification programmes, organises origin site visits, conferences and competitions and is a recognised authority with government organisations to lobby for coffee quality causes.
