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.

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.
