About Us

What is the SCA UK?

We are the Specialty Coffee Association - United Kingdom Chapter. We are here to represent the UK based members of the Specialty Coffee Association, organise and run the national coffee competitions that lead in to the World Championships and to organise and run events to inform, educate and bring together the UK coffee community.
The overriding goal of SCA UK is to spread the knowledge of great coffee! Whether this is through entering any of the competitions we oversee, or by attending any of the training events we host throughout the year.
The SCA UK chapter is also about fun and friendship! The competitions are not only a great way to learn but also about meeting other people in the UKs ever growing coffee community and forging great new friendships and contacts.
The SCA UK chapter is an association with a growing number of members - people like you, who are looking for coffee excellence. Our members come from all areas of the coffee industry, from machine manufacturers to roasters, cafe owners and ancillary suppliers.
The SCA UK Chapter is run by an elected committee and a non-elected sub-committee of volunteers.
