The coffee industry is an integral part of the U.S. economic fabric. Agricultural import, publicly traded commodity, roasted and blended retail product and widely served beverage, coffee plays a big role in households, storefronts and boardrooms nationwide. The path of coffee from tree to cup brings it into contact with government in many areas ranging from international commerce to food safety to homeland security. To advocate for the industry, NCA interacts regularly with all facets of government on a day to day basis.
