NCA Staff

As the leading trade association representing coffee in the U.S., the NCA believes our staff should be just as diverse as the people who grow our coffee, roast it, ship it, stock it, and pour it.

We are proud to have a lean, skilled staff of diverse personal and professional backgrounds. As of 2021, over half of our staff are women, three-quarters of whom hold director-level leadership roles; one-third identify as non-white; one-fifth identify as LGBTQ+; and a variety of neurocognitive and physical abilities bring unique insight and perspectives to our work every day. 

We're a small team, so don’t often have job openings, but when we do, we strongly encourage candidates with unique perspectives to apply. The NCA never discriminates on the basis of race, color, sex, age, national origin, religion, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, or disability.
