Script Details

Around 10,000 years ago, the genetic parents of coffee met and, in a single event, coffea Arabica was born. We don’t know who first learned to pick it and roast it and brew it and enjoy it, but it was certainly a person who shared it with their family and their community. We also don’t know who brought coffee across the red sea to Yemen, but there it flourished and was introduced to the world. Coffee went from there to India and to Indonesia, and from there moved around the world, becoming became the international sensation we now know it to be. And every time this happened, it was a person with a dream and an idea and a plan to bring coffee somewhere else in the world.

Meanwhile, coffee drinkers flourished too. The coffee ceremonies of Ethiopia led to the coffeehouses of Arabia, and before long there were coffee shops and coffee lovers in Europe and Asia and Australia and the Americas. And every time a shop opened, it was a person with a dream and an idea and a plan who opened it. And every time a person made coffee for another person it was an act of kindness and of deliciousness and of human connection.

Today, over 20 million families make their livelihoods from coffee agriculture. From there, every bean of coffee must pass through at least 18 pairs of hands before the coffee makes it into a cup. Those 18 people live in different countries, speak different languages, trade in different currencies, and have names and colleagues and families. Coffee is an amazing feat of international collaboration, involving a huge, diverse community of people.

We are that community. We are the people who work together to make great coffee happen. And, like a family, we share our successes and our struggles. And we bear responsibility to each other. But we’ve achieved something miraculous together already- the miracle of great coffee- and we can achieve even more. If we work together. And that’s who we are, the Specialty Coffee Community. Working together.
