Australian AMC Roasting Championship entries open
18th December 2017 - 31st December 2017$350
There are 30 spots up for grabs in the first competition of the Australian AMC Roasting Championship: the Roasting Championship Feeder Competition to be held across January. For the first time, competitors will be able to roast in the comfort of their own roastery, submitting two coffees, one provided by Condesa Co-Lab, for a panel of esteemed industry judges to then cup and analyse. Australian AMC Roasting Championship entries open December 18 and close December 31 (or when sold out). This comp will whittle down the pack to the #ASCATop12 who will then go on to compete in the AMC Australian Roasting Championship at MICE in March 2018.
Australian AMC Roasting Championship Feeder Competition Summary
The feeder competition is open to all eligible competitors as per the WCRC rules and regulations. There is capacity for a maximum of 30 competitors in this stage.
The competition is divided into 3 steps:
Pre-Competition: Competitors will be provided with 3kg of green coffee – the compulsory coffee. They may test this coffee however they feel appropriate in the lab and with the equipment of their choosing.
Production Roasting: Competitors will, using the equipment of their choosing produce a roast of the compulsory roast. They will also produce a roast of a coffee of their choosing, the Open coffee, to submit for evaluation. Competitors should submit the roasting plans for their intended roasts and give a brief description of what outcome they wished to achieve in the roasts. Competitors will submit 500g of their final roast of both their entries for evaluation.
Production Roast Evaluation: All submitted coffees are cupped ‘double-blind’ by judges. The submitted Compulsory and Open coffee may be evaluated in different time.
Total scores are based on the Production Roast Evaluation results, and roasting plan scores of coffee.
