Home Coffee Roaster Competition 2019

Purchase this as an entry into the 2019 Home Roaster Competition.

After the huge success the last few years, the Home Roaster category will again use a "control bean". All entries will receive the same secret green bean, coffee bags and all postage paid for entry into 3 categories (Espresso, Latte, Filter).

you will receive:

1: 2.5kg of green beans
2: 3 x entry bags with code numbers (these bags must be used)
3: Freight to you.
4: Express Post satchel to return your roasted coffee to us on the 9th Nov
5: Freight to the Port Mac. competition.

You will roast and return in the express post envelope:
300g - Espresso
300g - Cafe Latte
300g - Filter

The 2.5kg of green beans will produce about 2kg of roasted coffee so you are sending in less than half as your entry leaving you some to drink and experiment with.

The beans will be judged anonymously by coffee industry professionals at the Golden Bean Roasting competition in Port Macquarie from the 20th to the 23rd of November 2019 and the winners of each category will be announced on the night of the 23rd.

The overall Home Roaster champion with be the person with the highest combined scores in the 3 categories.

Entries need to be posted back on the 7th or 8th of November so they arrive here on the 11th and 12th to ensure they make it into the judging. You can enter more than once if you want. Any substitution beans will void all your entries. Late returns will not be judged. Coffee bag entries should be sticky-taped at the top if you can't heat seal the edge with an iron (use brown paper between the 100 degree iron and the bag). We will announce the details of the secret bean on the 13th when entries are closed.

As a Home Coffee Roaster competition, these must be roasted on a domestic roaster or home made contraption worth less than $2000. If you are roasting on something grander, please enter the commercial roasting competition at or you can let us know prior and your results will be excluded from the overall homeroaster results but your coffee will still be blind judged. By entering you agree to sell your roaster to a fellow Coffee Snob for $2000 or less.

See the news section of CoffeeSnobs for rule updates, information and answers to questions.

Have fun and good luck!
