If you've had the chance to glance over the program for Roaster Camp, you may have felt a little overwhelmed by all of the incredible items in store over three days. We've packed in a host of informative and useful classes, inspiring talks & tastings and the chance to connect through evening socials. To make the whole thing a little easier to digest we've compiled a run-down of the highlights at the inaugural Roaster Camp – if you haven't got a ticket, yet then you can register here now.
Hands-on Roasting Experience on a Variety of Roasting Machines
Each day at Camp there is a class focussed on encouraging attendees to have hands-on experience with a range of roasting machines. Guided by knowledgeable trainers, this is your chance to broaden your understanding of how to operate alternative models.
Meet the Creators and Trainers of the SCAE CDS Roasting Module
Several of the Roaster Camp trainers are highly qualified ASTs and have ample knowledge of the CDS Roasting Module – the classes at Camp are bitesize chunks of what you would expect to find on the CDS course.
Connect with Roasters on an International Level
This is the very first Roaster Guild of Europe event and a special opportunity for Roasters to come together to learn, share and connect with one another.
Take Unique Classes
Each class at Camp has been tailored especially to meet the needs of a range of attendees from 'Sample Roasting' with Morten Münchow to 'How to Win a Roasting Championship' with Joanna Alm there is something for all levels of experience.
Enjoy Pärnu and the Estonia Resort Hotel & Spa
The venue for Roaster Camp 2016 is in a beautiful setting on the cost of Pärnu – it is a modern hotel with excellent facilities and a top notch chef!
Join in Yoga or a 5k Run
One for the gym bunnies – participate in our early morning exercise groups to connect with like-minded folk and wake up your mind and bodies for class!
The team challenges have been created to unite attendees and test your skills. Think Blind Cupping, Speedy Protocols and Sack Races ;)
