Education at Roaster Camp

Hannah Davies

The Roaster Camp program is shaping up to be a jam-packed 3 days of roasting, tasting, talking and learning! Attendees to Roaster Camp will have the chance to choose from a variety of classes during the morning program and in the afternoon everyone will regroup for lectures, presentations and group tastings. Green Coffee Partners will be showcasing their coffee throughout the event at scheduled cuppings and Camp will bring out a competitive side in attendees with a team roasting challenge set to test knowledge, skills and experience. 

Brand new for 2017! 

Take the SCA Foundation Roasting class as part of the new SCA Coffee Skills Program on day one of Roaster Camp. Morten Münchow (SCA Creators Member) and Filip Akerblom will lead the one-day foundation level class. Additional charges apply – book here now before spaces are gone!

CoffeeMind – Business Model Survey

Hannah Davies

Roaster Guild of Europe working group member Morten Münchow is driving research on the business models used within specialty coffee roasting businesses. By gathering a broad range of data from roasters worldwide Morten, along with Copenhagen Business School and Speciality Coffee Association of Europe will gain an insight into the standard practices and models used. The study will aim to be transparent – a report from the study will be made available, and there will be the opportunity for you to see the research presented by Morten the inaugural Roaster Camp in October 2016.

The idea behind the survey is Morten's – "As a teacher and consultant over the years I have developed a keen eye for the blind spots on the business areas of startup roasteries so I wanted to get some numbers on how roasteries organise themselves to get lean and successful. Often people want to do it all. But they shouldn’t! It is way better to narrow down your business to a narrow customer segment and build their organisation according to the needs of this segment. We hope from the data to be able to provide the community with a picture of best practices when it comes to narrowing down the business model they want to design for themselves. Additionally, clustering the different coffee roasting businesses into categories that can inspire upcoming roasters to choose one scenario and not others that might save them some expensive trial and error iterations or perhaps even early failure!"

To take part in the study, all you need to do is fill out a 10-minute survey based on the business practices in place at your roastery. In return for your efforts, you will receive a complimentary copy of Morten's upcoming ebook on SCAE Roasting Foundation that will be released early July 2016.

Welcome to Roaster Guild of Europe

Hannah Davies

If you’re reading this then it’s likely the first time you’ve headed over to the brand new Roaster Guild of Europe website, so welcome!

The Roaster Guild of Europe working group met for the first time in Frankfurt, September 2015 to put their heads together and create the beginnings of a new SCAE trade guild for roasters. Eight months on and we’re ready to launch with news of the inaugural Roaster Camp which will take place this October 6-8 in Pärnu, Estonia. The camp program will span a full three days with workshops, seminars, challenges and group discussions. 

Tickets for camp will be launched at World of Coffee, Dublin where you come and meet with the working group, relax and catch up over a coffee.
