Nordic Roaster Competition 2014 – Results

We are happy to announce that the winner of the 2014 Nordic Roaster Competition is:

da Matteo from Sweden.

Congratulations!

The Nordic Roaster 2014 was held in Copenhagen during the Nordic Roaster Forum on the 30th of October – 1st of November.

There were 10 participating roasters and for the first time in the competition’s history they were all from the Nordic Countries.

This might be because the competition format was changed in 2014. The new rules can be read in full here.

Each roaster had to submit two coffees for the competition. One of the coffee had to be a washed coffee of traditional cultivar / variety (not Geisha)  produced in Central America. The second coffee had to be produced in either Kenya or Ethiopia and had to be washed. All coffees had to be traceable to one farm or a cooperative.

The coffees were  cupped blind in two rounds by the 45 attendees at the Nordic Roaster Forum . The attendees had to score the coffees based on the Cup of Excellence system from 0 to 100 points where 100 was the best score. All the scores given by the attendees for each coffee was added together and then averaged. The average from the two rounds were added together and the roaster with the highest average score after the two cuppings won the 2014 Nordic Roaster Competition and earned the title 2014 Nordic Roaster.

Below are the full results and the results from each round.
