The Roasters Guild (RG) is an official trade guild of the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) that consists of specialty roasters dedicated to the craft of roasting quality coffee and promotes quality as the principle standard for success. Founded in 2000, the RG has steadily grown ever since and welcomes new members each year. To be a member of the Guild, roasting must be an integral part of one's profession. The Guild furthers roasters' knowledge of and skills in the history, fundamentals, art, and science of coffee roasting, and is the focused voice in the industry representing the interests of coffee roasters.

We believe that the roaster has the ability to effect positive change on the specialty coffee industry through debate and shared knowledge between his or her peers. The Guild creates and fosters opportunities for professional roasters to have their voices heard, advance their personal knowledge through professional certificate programs and relationship-building, and obtain recognition through competitions and events.
