The Flick

Scott Rao,

Perhaps the most difficult aspect of roasting is controlling the bean-temperature Rate Of Rise just before and during first crack. Scott Rao - coffee consultant, trainer and author of the book "The Coffee Roaster's Companion" - shares his insights why to watch out for "the flick" and how to prevent it.

Competitors’ insights into WCRC…and Cropster.

Andreas Benedikter,

2012, SCAE’s World of Coffee Vienna. Based on an initiative of Sweden’s renown roast trainer Filip Akerblom and companions the World Coffee Roasting Championship (WCRC) first entered the stage with ambitions to become an official World of Coffee event. Successfully, as it turned out. Back then the WCRC that we now know was still called World Coffee Roasting Competition (rather than Championship) but Cropster was already integral part of this event.

World Coffee Roasting Competition 2015

Norbert Niederhauser,

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.
