Who are we?
In 2008 Mare Terra Coffee created the Spanish Coffee Institute Foundation - IECAFÉ - currently Mare Terra Coffee Institute, with the aim of training the entire coffee chain. Our vision is to work directly with small coffee producers to increase the quality and visibility of their products in a global context, promoting the knowledge of quality coffee through training and consultancy.
Since 2017 we have been accredited by the prestigious international speciality coffee organisation, Specialty Coffee Association (SCA), as an SCA Premier Training Campus, a recognition as a world-class training centre, which certifies us as an international reference centre for quality training and the dissemination of coffee culture.
Mare Terra Coffee Institute will continue to pursue goals of general interest, in the form of collaborative actions for social welfare in producing countries, supporting training and the promotion of studies to discover new economic opportunities for the community, helping to protect the environment through sustainability projects and collaborating with other institutions by joining forces to achieve better results for society.
