THE CONTENDERS 
 


 

The very best roasters from around the globe will be assembled together to showcase their skills in Roast Masters ™ 2019. 

Stay tuned to find out the final line-up. 



THE DISCIPLINES 
 



THE Espresso BLEND


It’s up to the roasters to bring their own coffee to the table and present their espresso blend.

Each roaster has 15 minutes to present 12 coffees - 4 espressos, 4 dairy coffees and 4 non-dairy plant based coffees - to the judges and explain both the taste profile and commercial rationales behind the blend. The commercial espresso blend wholesale price must be under $25 per kg to qualify.

Points will be allocated on taste, presentation and showmanship.
 


Stay tuned for more details on how to apply.

The Single Origin 


A cupping challenge with a twist. Competing roasters will receive 5kg of the same green coffee beans one month before the event – enough time to create and develop a unique roasting profile.

At Roast Masters in New York, the expert judges will cup all the resulting 30 coffees side by side, live, whilst each roaster presents their profile to the panel within three minutes.

Points will be allocated for taste and presentation.
