The ASCA Australian AMC Coffee Roasting Championships is the new kid on the block of Australian coffee competitions. Acknowledgement of the vital role of coffee roaster has its own competition discipline now! It’s a very different feel to the other competitions, far more communal and a valuable learning tool for all the attendees. Roasters are given green coffee samples to grade and assess for roasting. After roasting, the samples are judged on cup quality for sensory assessment. Australia has some of the best roasters in the world, and we are now proudly sending someone to the World Roasting Championships annually.
