France Roasting Championship

On your mark, get set, roast!

Organized by the French chapter of the SCA, the France Roasting Championship pits the best roasters in the country against each other. Winners here will directly qualify for the world championship, so this high-stakes competition offers a unique show for all coffee lovers.

The Roasting test assesses participants’knowledge of different varieties and origins of coffee, and their ability to reveal the best aromas and flavours. The participants are asked to rate five green coffees based on several criteria, such as grain quality or moisture content, and then develop a good roasting profile for each. A tasting session allows the judges to decide between them.
