J.C.Q.A. Coffee Appraisers

Effort to Make Products That Meet Customer Needs

As our efforts to make products that meet customer needs, two J.C.Q.A. Coffee Appraisers with expert knowledge, experience, and skills, manage the processes of Hagihara Coffee from the buying of green beans to roasting, quality control, and packaging.

What is a J.C.Q.A. Coffee Appraiser?

The J.C.Q.A. Coffee Appraiser is qualified by the J.C.Q.A. (Japan Coffee Qualification Authority) as “a person who has acquired highly expert knowledge and appraisal skills of coffee regarding the procurement of ingredients, the management of production and quality, etc.” It is very difficult to become a Coffee Appraiser: since the start of the qualification system in 2003 to March 2013, only 10 persons in Japan have acquired the qualification.

The J.C.Q.A. Coffee Appraiser is required to have a wide and deep knowledge of all processes for coffee production. Therefore, the qualification presupposes a mastery of product design, green bean appraisal, and quality control to produce products that meet consumer needs.

Introduction of Appraisers
