THE COFFEE CONTEST FOCUSED ON THE ART OF ROASTING SPECIALTY COFFEE
Due to the Amsterdam Coffee Festival getting cancelled, for obvious reasons, nobody was able to enter the Roastmasters competion. Yet, we were fully prepared and had some seriously good stuff in the house. These coffees were roasted to be enjoyed, so we decided to offer all three categories in one great box. Limited offer, only 10 ever available. Be fast!
Discipline 1: The Single Origin
(free sample Suke Quto - filter 160g)
5 kg of the same single origin green coffee is sent to competitors 3 weeks prior to the competition.
The coffee should be roasted by competitors in advance of the event at their own premises using their in-house equipment
Each roaster is required to create and define a unique signature roasting profile which will be presented during the competition.
Discipline 2: The Espresso Blend
(Roastmasters Blend - omniroast 1kg)
Competing Roasters are invited to design a unique espresso blend at their own premises using their in-house equipment and own coffee
The blend should be commercially viable and tailored to the roaster’s own local market.
Discipline 3: The Pour Over
(Burundi - Nyarugumba - filter 250g)
Competing Roasters are invited to design and roast a unique filter coffee roast (single origin or blend) of their choosing at their own premises using their in-house equipment and own coffee
The filter roast and chosen pour-over brewing method should demonstrate creativity, innovation and the pushing of boundaries in specialty coffee roasting and taste
Competing Roasters should ask themselves the question: how far can you take coffee?
With an international perspective and a fresh, unique format, this leading tournament brings together the best coffee roasters from Europe for the second time, putting them to the ultimate test.
