It’s a three days of diverse workshops, inspiring seminars, hands-on roasting experience and challenges aimed at connecting and developing roasters from across Europe. It’s the Roaster Camp 2016 produced by the Roaster Guild of Europe and supported by Victoria Arduino. On October 6-8 the city of Pärnu (Estonia) will host a compulsory event in the diary of European roasters.
Attendees can select and take part to a range of interesting workshops including roasting, green coffee, and sensory, all taking inspiration from the SCAE Coffee Diploma System. Afternoon seminars and round-table discussions on a broad range of topics related to roasting will give delegates the opportunity to debate and share their practices, encouraging development and strengthening the network at camp. Here the program. Adding to the fun and chance to demonstrate your skills will be the team roasting and sensory challenges with VA388 Black Eagle and Mythos One. The final assessment and winners presentation to close day three will send delegates home on a high.
