    National Coffee Roasting Competition: "Focus on the Roast 2015"

    Focus On the Roast - Roasting Competition!

    Taxes are done so it is time for a roasting competition! Who is up for the challenge?

    Coffee professional or amateur, this is your chance to match your roaster and your skills in a community-based "Roast Off." The competition is open to you regardless of what brand roaster you use.

    We've got fabulous prizes and hope to spark conversation across an array of forums. We've also got a great coffee and support from Cafe Imports and judging by a collection of semi-pro cuppers anchored by BoldJava.

    This is a chance for our community to come together to share learning and results across the nation against different equipment and differing roasting styles. This competition is not limited to our North roasters. Get those Ambex, Behmor, and heat gun/dog bowls warmed up!

    Although somebody's going to win, we'd like this to be less about competition and more about education. Please share your questions, cupping notes, roast logs and results. A discussion forum will be linked here (

    Most of all, enjoy the coffee and the process, maybe learn a thing or two, make some new friends and have a blast!

    Roast on, Steve Green and Dave Borton, BoldJava

    It's okay, Topher. We'll make an exception for you and maybe Starbucks if they want a t-shirt.

    I'll edit that right now.
