Thanks to all of your generous support, the Specialty Coffee Association of Japan (SCAJ) is welcoming it’s 21-year celebration and steps into its new decade.
We are very grateful that the 19th SCAJ World Specialty Coffee Conference and Exhibition, SCAJ2024, is on the way.

As the development of the specialty coffee industry, SCAA was first established in the United States in 1982, then various specialty coffee organizations were followed by and established. SCAE (Europe, 1998), BSCA (Brazil, 1991) and other in Costa Rica (1994), Panama (1998), East Africa (2000).

Jumping into the trend, SCAJ was founded in 2003 and has been dedicated to increasing awareness and deepening understanding of specialty coffee among coffee consumers and producers in Japan. 2001 and 2002 were known as "Coffee Crisis" era, due to the hit of the lowest price level ever of the international raw material market. Producers were exhausted due to the effort to cut costs and the unsatisfaction of the fertilization system. Therefore, the quality of coffee production was pretty low. On the other hand, roasters in consumer countries were forced into a price war. Under such circumstances, in response to the voice of developing a sustainable coffee industry, focusing more on quality rather than the price, and offering impressive coffee at a reasonable price, SCAJ was born.

With the theme of “Let’s go full throttle into a new decade”, we are taking our next step into a brand new decade with SCAJ 2024. Even though there are quite a few issues out there, such as currency exchange, global coffee market price, labor shortage, climate change, with the introduction of AI and the development of automation and digitalization, let’s look forward to the bright future of the specialty coffee industry.

Like every year, we would like to make it a meaningful four-day event, with delivering the latest news/information about the specialty coffee industry, showing off the wonderfulness and diversity of specialty coffee, as well as offering new opportunities for you.

We are looking forward to seeing you there.
