The term "Specialty Coffee" was first used in 1974 by Erna Knutsen in an issue of Tea & Coffee Trade Journal. Knutsen used this term to describe beans of the best flavour which are produced in special microclimates.
It is now commonly used to differentiate higher quality coffees (e.g. those that "score" 80 or above on a taste-quality scale of 100) from those that are sold as a commodity product for mass-market consumption. "Specialty" or "premium" coffee comprises about 10% of the coffee industry as a whole.
Because each crop is scored separately, we will only ever have limited amounts of each specialty coffee.
