The information, standards and procedures herein are a collaborative work resulting from efforts led by the Uganda Coffee Development Authority (UCDA) and Coffee Quality Institute (CQI) and incorporating data from the International Coffee Organization and modeled upon practices used for the differentiation of Arabica coffee by the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA).

Special appreciation is extended to the individuals, employees, consultants and volunteers of these organizations, without whose vision and contribution, development of Fine Robusta standards and a global market for Fine Robusta would not have been possible.
