A coffee aficionado with the papers to prove it

by The 100 Companies

When you walk into Current Crop Roasting Shop on Magazine Street, you might wonder: Where do I order my coffee? There is no counter or barista here, but there is a Certified Q Grader.

A Q Grader is a bit like a sommelier of coffee – receiving the certification requires hours of study and a six-day extensive course at the Coffee Science Institute. Current Crop Roasting Shop Store Director Catherine Mansell is one of only roughly 4,000 worldwide and 400 in the U.S.

Recognized globally, Certified Q Graders ensure a common language of quality for coffee producers and buyers alike.
