Roasting Competition (Max 15 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."
