After three years of research and development, the SCA is evolving the tool the global industry uses to discover value in coffee. The Coffee Value Assessment offers a complete, “high-resolution” picture of a specific coffee across four assessment types, completed separately to avoid bias—and is now available to “beta test” as a part of an early-adopter program, having launched at the SCA’s Specialty Coffee Expo in Portland, OR in April, 2023.023.

Driven by the SCA’s sustainability agenda, which emphasizes equitable value distribution throughout the supply chain, the system aspires to be a powerful tool to help measure and facilitate value assessment and distribution. It simultaneously integrates advances in sensory and coffee science, making it compatible with scientific research for the first time, as well as learnings from a large user-perception research project conducted with the specialty coffee community.

Despite its broad reach within the coffee sector, the 2004 SCA cupping system had not been thoroughly investigated or substantially updated since its creation—and the SCA is committed to improving its tools to improve market access and equity throughout the specialty coffee supply chain. The new Coffee Value Assessment, an evolution of the 2004 SCA Cupping and Grading Protocol guided by the results of a user perception survey of 1600 cuppers worldwide, has been in testing with groups of cuppers in Latin America, Europe, and the US in 2022.

This course will guide you through the world of the Coffee Value Assessment by explaining how to fill out the forms and what it was created for, while also testing your tasting skills with practical tests.

The course is theoretical/practical (after the practical part and the demonstration you will work personally, supported by the Tutor, with the equipment) and is only addressed to those who already have skills in coffee sensory analysis (Q graders or professional cuppers), it is not an entry level course.
