Find the SCAA at Sintercafe

Sintercafe’s international coffee week starts tomorrow in San Jose, Costa Rica and runs through November 14th. Are you planning on attending? If so, be sure to stop by the SCAA Booth (#16) to learn more about membership, upcoming events and just to say hi to CQI’s Alex Katona and SCAC’s David Piza.

Alex will also be giving a presentation at Sintercafe on Friday November 12th, which will cover how CQI is bringing a social media approach to its new database. By providing users with an engaging platform to communicate about and find Q Certified Coffee in real time, the database is driving a new form of communication between buyers and sellers and other quality-driven stakeholders throughout the supply chain. If you’re there, this is one workshop you won’t want to miss.
