  • Tips for the Coffee Roasting Championship

    I represented Sweden in the World Coffee Roasting Championships last week in Rimini. Previous years I have placed second, third and fourth and there was no secret I wanted to bring home the gold to Sweden this time.

  • Third best roaster in the world and how to become even better

    This was the first year that the World Coffee Roasting Championship was organized in Sweden and I, Joanna, was proud to take home the prize, considering the many great roasters competing. Among those was my great friend, Christian Gullbrandsson, from daMatteo, who came third and who I brought along as coach to the the world championship.  The world championships were held in Rimini, Italy, and lasted for three days, the first of which was about analysing raw coffee (picking out defects and categorizing these, measure moisture and degree of colour of the green and roasted coffee) and sample roasting the...
