Dr. Sabam Malau has become a Licensed Q Grader since 11 January 2012 after having passed succesfully the retake examination in Jakarta on 11 January 2012. 

Total cost of retake examination was IDR 6,000,000.  I do appreciate USAID because USAID paid the fee of retake examination IDR 2,250,000, while I myself -from my own money- paid the round tickets, transportation and accomodation cost in amount of IDR 3,750,000. 


It means, the total cost of Q Grader course was IDR 22,000,000 whereby I my self -from my own money- had paid IDR 19,750,000. 


According to Coffee Quality Institute (CQI), at the backbone of the Q Grading System are Licenced Q Graders, professional cuppers accredited by the CQI. Those who pass the Q Grader Certification Course are authorized to use Q logo and the nomenclature "Licenced Q Grader" as a professional accreditation.
