Montreal cupping Lab

Montreal Quality "Labo Equitable"

The Coopérative de Solidarité du Café Équitable (CoopSol), in partnership with Cooperative Coffees and Coffee Lab International, is proud to announce the certification of the Labo Equitable Montreal as Canada’s first SCAA accredited training laboratory for cupping and quality control.

The Labo Equitable is responsible for sample testing for import approval or refusal of Cooperative Coffees members’ contracts and for non-member sales, quality profile evaluation from regions across the coffee growing world, and the facilitation of information exchange and learning amongst a broad sector of the Specialty Coffee industry, coffee producing partners, and the consuming public at large.

And now, as an SCAA certified learning lab, we offer specialized courses to help new-comers to the world of Specialty Coffee in demystifying the building blocks of quality; and for seasoned coffee traders and roasters looking to improve their skills and / or qualify, to join the ranks of SCAA Cupping Judges or Q Graders, based upon industry-recognized standards. Located in Montréal, a city renowned as an international crossroads in North America, we also offer multi-lingual instruction (French, English and Spanish) as well as a rich cultural experience.
