The Value of ACE Membership
ACE members make a meaningful impact to accomplishing our shared goals of discovering the highest quality coffees, rewarding farmers, building transparency and developing global alliances in the specialty coffee industry. Currently, ACE has over 300 members spanning 50 countries.
Please take a moment to review the contents of our website and ask your industry peers why they belong to ACE.
The online member directory is a great resource for discovering what companies are ACE members and a way in which many people have formed valuable relationships and buying groups to purchase COE coffees. You’ll also find historical information about winning bidders and farm information from previous years.
ACE Benefactor and Community Members are encouraged to participate in exclusive online auctions of this year’s award winning coffees. We also encourage the use of sample sets as a way to try before you buy, train staff, and educate consumers on the benefits of drinking quality coffee.
Jury participation is a great way to discover coffees at-origin, elevate your industry presence as a COE cupper, and see first-hand the impact of the process for farmers as they arrive on awards day in hope of making this year’s list of COE winners.
Our team in Portland, Oregon (USA), is available to assist you with your questions. We also have a strong following on social media and ask that our members engage with us sharing stories about their business and excitement on auction day!
