The SCAE Gold Cup Programme
The Gold Cup Programme is a European drive by the SCAE to improve the standard of filter coffee consumed in the marketplace. It ensures a WIN for the Coffee Roaster, a WIN for the Restaurateur and a WIN for the consumer.
SCAE Gold Cup = Win-Win-Win
The SCAE’s Gold Cup programme promotes a better, measurable standard in filter coffee. This will be achieved by recognising an internationally respected set of rules on brewing filter coffee.
The Gold Cup sets minimum standards for coffee to water ratio, brewing temperature and holding time, and optimum standards for coffee extraction and strength.
We are proud to be sponsored and supported by the following companies in our drive for better quality filter coffee.
