SCAA offers memberships to companies and individuals in every segment of the specialty coffee supply chain. We have many company member types to choose from, and we recommend purchasing the membership type that best reflects your business to other members. If you are not sure which company membership to purchase, please contact the membership team here.



To start the membership process you will first need to create a company and personal profile here. Once your profile is created and you’re logged in, you can browse and purchase memberships in our online store.



When you work for an SCAA member company, you get access to the company's benefits too. You can create a profile at scaa.org/myprofile and connect your account to your company's membership for free. If you use your company email address, you should be connected automatically, but if you are not (or don't have a company email address), please email membership@scaa.org and we will connect you. We may need to complete a brief verification process. You will need your own profile and member ID number to access members-only areas of the site, register for classes, and attend The Event - so we encourage you to set it up today!

You may also want to consider an individual professional guild membership for yourself. With your SCAA membership, you can join at discounted rates. Visit baristaguildofamerica.net or roastersguild.org for more information.

why associate
"In my experience as a coffee person, there is no more important coffee organization than the SCAA. I owe so much to the professional network I have access to through the SCAA; and the standards and information the SCAA has developed has been of crucial importance to the development of my company. I cannot imagine operating a coffee business without an SCAA membership."
