The World Coffee Roasting Competition in Gothenburg is in full swing and we thought we would share some of the action with you, as many of us are not around to watch the Roast Competition in real time. The champions completed their second day of roasts with their selected coffees and are now giving the beans time to de-gas before cupping them and passing samples to the judges tomorrow. Here are the diverse profiles that they have chosen to use after their trial roasting yesterday (see below).

Each competitor is roasting on a new Giesen W6 roaster which integrates directly with the Cropster Roasting Intelligence software. For more updates on the competition follow #WCRC2015 on Twitter.
