Compak Golden Bean Roasters Cup

Compak Golden Bean Roasters Cup sponsored by Coffee Roasters Australia

A new initiative to Café Biz expo this year is the Compak Golden Bean Roaster Cup. Taking place over the two days of Café Biz, Day 1 will see participants roasting the same green coffee to then be cupped and judged on Day 2.

With Anne Cooper as head judge and coordinator, this competition is set to challenge the intermediate to experienced roasters in roasting a particular origin of green bean provided. With the green bean type and specs not disclosed until Day 1, participants will have to muster all their knowledge and skills to roast the nominated green bean in order to portray its optimum flavour characteristics. Participants will submit one roast from the three roasted samples allowed in the 45 minute time frame.

During the roasting a manual data logging sheet will be completed and presented with their philosophy and reasoning as to why they roasted the origin to that particular profile.

Day 2 of the competition will consist of rounds of peer judging by cupping the roasts submitted and identifying the four best roasts. To then determine the best overall roast of the nominated coffee, the top four roasts will move on to a finals round to be judged by a panel of specialist judges – including Anne Cooper, Andy Freeman and Mark Beattie

The winner will receive 2 delegate tickets to the Compak Golden Bean Coffee Roasters Competition and Conference in November 2015 valued at $1,500 and will featured in Café Culture Magazine.
