Manufacturers submit their coffee makers to the SCA for assessment in order to obtain the prized certification.
The SCA assesses the home brewers on 9 strict brewing criteria. Certification is valid for three years. It is also tied to a specific make and model.
Please note: It is not unusual for manufacturers to make changes to machine features. This feature list is current as of November 2019. Please refer to the manufacturer website for a full list of coffee maker features.
