The Australian Specialty Coffee Association (ASCA) is proud to announce that the inaugural ASCA Australian Coffee Roasting Championship will take place at the Melbourne International Coffee Expo (MICE) from 30 March to 1 April.
The competition will be run to World Coffee Events regulations. The winner of the Australian competition will go on to represent the country at the World Coffee Roasting Championship, taking place in Guangzhou, China in December 2017.
The competition tests the skills of the individual roaster, with all competitors roasting coffee live in the Grand Pavilion over the three days of MICE. Over this intense multi day event, competitors will be asked to asses and roast a single origin coffee and a blend to plan for assessment by an experienced panel of cuppers.
All coffee will be provided by Condesa, one of Australia’s leading suppliers of specialty coffee.
