Licensed Q Grader | This program is managed and operated by SCAA’s charitable trust, the Coffee Quality Institute (CQI). The training and tests are similar to the SCAA Cupping Judge exam, but the Q Grader Program includes a general knowledge exam and results in a professional accreditation. Anyone grading coffees under CQI’s Q Coffee System must be a Licensed Q Grader. More information is available at www.coffeeinstitute.org
