Become A Member And Join Our Global Community Today

The mission of the Coffee Roasters Guild is to inspire a diverse coffee roasting community through the development and promotion of the roasting profession. We aim to achieve this mission by designing events and opportunities that focus on high-quality education and building connections within the industry. As a trade guild, we are determined to create these opportunities for every individual that roasts coffee as a profession, anywhere in the world. We create open and inclusive environments for roasting professionals to meet, connect, and grow.

We are a trade guild of the Specialty Coffee Association, created to represent the roasting profession within the SCA’s membership. Joining the SCA gives you membership with the Association and the Guild at the same time. Your joint SCA/CRG membership gives you voting power and amplifies the collective voice of coffee roasters.

Become a member today to support the nonprofit mission of the SCA and to advance the work of the CRG to grow the roasting profession, and ultimately make a difference in the whole coffee value chain.
