After a successful prelaunch event at SCAE World of Coffee in Vienna last year, World Coffee Events (a daughter company of SCAE) is pleased to announce the first official World Coffee Roasting Championship that will debut at SCAE World of Coffee in Nice. The event will showcase national champions from over ten countries, including Singapore, Russia, Japan, Hong Kong, France, Norway and Romania.
The event was developed to highlight the art and skill in craft roasting. The format is comprised of three stages. First, the participant evaluates three green coffee options, provided to them by this year’s coffee sponsor, Café Imports. Next, a coffee is selected and a roasting profile that best accentuates the desirable characteristics of the coffee is created. Sample roasters provided by Toper are used in developing the roast profile. Then, competitors prepare their competition coffee on Giesen production roasters. Finally, on the third day, the coffees are cupped by apanel of judges to determine who most closely matched their roasting profile with the outcome in the cup.
