At the annual meeting of the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA) Roaster’s Guild, Diedrich Roasters, LLC announced the establishment of Scholarship Fund, an ongoing annual fund of $5,000 per year. The Ponderay, ID company honors recently retired founder Stephan Diedrich. The scholarship is meant to enable new roasters who would not be able to otherwise to attend the annual Roaster’s Guild Retreat.
“We at Diedrich are really proud of our products and the artisan roasters who use them. Establishing this ongoing scholarship both honors Steve’s legacy and continues this company’s 35-year commitment to encouraging new roasters, as well as innovation, education, and looking toward the future. I look forward to meeting the first recipients at this year’s 2016 Retreat at Lake Lawn Resort in Wisconsin,” said Michael Paquin, President of Diedrich Roasters.
The application and vetting of applicants will be handled entirely by the Executive Council of the Roaster’s Guild. Details of that process are still in development but inquiries can be made through the SCAA.
