Panel Discussion – Trading Models And Certifications

Hannah Davies

All Roaster Camp 'coffeetalks' - by speakers such as Richard Graveling, Talor Browne and Morten Münchow - were curated by our production partner Tamper Tantrum. We'll be releasing the videos of these talks over the next months so we keep fuelling discussion and building an inventory of knowledge. Don't hesitate to share your comments, thoughts or any additional reading links.

The third panel in our releases from the first ever Roaster Camp in 2016 sees Sara Morrocchi (Vuna Origin Consulting), Eva Gefvert Nordell (Are Kafferosteri), and Joanna Alm (Drop Coffee Roasters) share their experiences with a range of trading models and certifications. Panel moderator, Stephen Leighton, introduces the topic with an overview of popular trading models including Organic, Fair Trade, Rainforest Alliance, Utz and 4 C Common Code. This panel offers an interesting perspective on common myths surrounding certifications as well as delving deep into a range of trading models – linking well with our last panel on Green Buying Ethics. 

Watch the panel below and check out the program for the upcoming Roaster Camp in 2017 here!

Famous for having his fingers in many pies, Morten Münchow played a key role in delivering classes, talks and panels at the inaugural Roaster Camp in 2016. In this talk, Morten presents data collected in a research project aiming to determine commonalities and differences amongst the business models of coffee roasteries. Introducing the audience to the concept of business models, both traditional and lean, Morten goes on to present the findings of his research in this engaging and information-packed talk! 


Morten Munchow, founder of CoffeeMind, is a man of many hats: as trainer, consultant, and researcher, Morten can be found at the University of Copenhagen, where he is an external lecturer in the department of food science, at the London School of Coffee, where he has taught coffee roasting since 2007, or hard at work with the SCAE Education and Research committees, where he developed SCAE’s roasting certification system.

Morten has conducted research on cappuccino foam chemistry, processing methods, starter cultures, sensory science, roasting defects, behavioural economics of consumer preferences, and roast degree preferences. He has also regularly consulted with a variety of different sized roasteries around the world, from South Africa to South Korea and Iceland to Kuwait and many more in between.

The second talk library release from Roaster Camp 2016 comes from Oslo-based Talor Browne. In her talk, Talor presents to the audience her findings from a large-scale experiment using one coffee, six roasts, four roasters, 24 profiles, 95 participants, and 2300 hand-packed samples. Her aim – to identify the nuances between a range of machines and dispell myths surrounding certain manufacturers so that she could make an informed decision regarding which roaster to buy for her new roastery. Her presentation at the first ever RGE Camp last year outlines the method, hypothesis, and results of the one week experiment – ending with a cupping of all 24 samples and live results from the attendees at RGE Camp!


Talor Browne is a roaster, barista, writer, Q grader and pastry chef. Founder of Talor&Jørgen and Fryd, she is originally from Australia but currently living in Oslo.

We can’t quite believe that it has been five months already since our inaugural European Roaster Camp! The unification of our parent associations has ensured a busy start to the year so we’re happy to take a moment of reflection to remember the fantastic program that we launched at Roaster Camp 2016. The first in our video releases of coffee talks comes from Richard Graveling, Principle Ergonomist at the Institute of Ergonomics

In his talk Richard delves into the importance of being mindful of our physical actions in the roastery. Starting with a high-level look at the scope of “ergonomics” and a few of the musculoskeletal disorders common to lifting sacks of coffee, Richard then offers some ideas for ways to lift (“give it a cuddle!”) as well as building and using equipment in the roastery preventatively.


Richard Graveling | Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors

Richard is a professional ergonomist (Chartered Ergonomist and Human Factors Expert) and previous President of what is now the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors.  He has over 35 years experience as an ergonomist and has worked in industries as diverse as coal mining and salmon farming; helping to assess risks and develop solutions to reduce those risks.

Although he has worked in many parts of the food and drink sector (based in Scotland the whisky industry is a particular favourite) his main exposure to coffee has been as a consumer, although he has advised a local coffee company on ergonomics issues – knowledge that will be worked into his talk.

Outside work he is involved with a local theatre group, enjoys rugby, gardening, seeing the great Scottish outdoors, and spending time with his family (and cat).
