Description

Hello!

Welcome to RMCCA's third year of hosting Preliminaries for the SCAA US Chapter. We will be hosting Roaster's and Cup Taster's Competition. Sign-ups begin July 1st, 8AM and ends August 21st, 6pm.

All supplies will be included! Please click on links to learn more about requirements and regulations for each competition.

Competition will take place at Allegro Roasting Facility in Thornton and IS NOT OPEN TO PUBLIC. All attendees must either be competing, coaching, or family. Everyone must remain in the pre-determined areas of the facility. (We'll have super-friendly folks and signs letting you know where not to go.)

Roasting Competition (Max 12 competitors)

"For the 2020 season, U.S. Roaster Prelims competitors will pick up in person or be shipped 20 pounds of compulsory green coffee, they will roast it, and bring 2lbs to their Prelim. Their coffee will first be judged in a blind tasting. Competitors will give a short presentation on their coffee to their panel of judges, then serve their compulsory roasted coffee to the CoffeeChamps audience and attendees!

Compulsory green coffee will be shipped to competitors 2-3 weeks prior to the competition. No substitutions are allowed. The registered competitor must be the one to roast and present the coffee. Any substitutions will result in disqualification."


Pricing:

RMCCA Members: $30

Non-members: $40


Cup Taster's Competition (Max 18 competitors)

Each competitor will be given 5 sets of 3 cups and must determine which one is the "odd" cup. (If a waitlist occurs we will consider opening up more spots based on schedule for day.)

RMCCA Members: $15

Non-members: $25
