About Us

The Coffee Roasters Guild (CRG) is the global trade guild of the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) dedicated to inspire a diverse coffee roasting community through the development and promotion of the roasting profession.

In 2016, when members of the heritage SCAE and SCAA voted to unify and create the Specialty Coffee Association, many of the most optimistic voices came from the roasting community, including members of the heritage Roaster Guild of Europe and Roasters Guild. Benefits envisioned with unification of the SCA includes the consistent “one member, one vote” across the guild member communities, a stronger voice for sustainability efforts, and a unified education program.

In January 2017, RG and RGE leadership embraced these benefits and created the Unification Committee to lead the way to bring this vision and values to guild membership worldwide.

In March 2018, the unified Coffee Roasters Guild was officially announced. While the goal to unify two guilds with different histories, cultures, traditions, and languages is surely ambitious, one thing that is a universal truth of Coffee Roasters is that there is something a little different about us- we’re quirky, we’re driven, and we question everything.
