Call for Abstracts: Nordic Roaster Forum 2019, October 4th & 5th, Oslo

This year’s Nordic Roaster Forum theme comes off the heels of 2018’s forum on sustainability. As we learned, sustainability is a wide ranging and complex topic with far-reaching consequences. Each of us are contemplating what we can do to minimize our impact on the environment, while simultaneously creating more sustainable models for running our coffee businesses.

The objective for this year’s forum is to explore ‘climate change adaptation in coffee’. How are coffee professionals across the coffee supply chain addressing and tackling climate change? If you are someone that has a working approach to, or you are researching this topic, we would love to hear from you.

Please submit a 250-500 word abstract for a 30-minute oral presentation about your work on climate change adaptation in coffee. Send your submission to by June 30th, 2019.

In line with this year’s forum theme, the Nordic Roaster Competition coffees will be leaf rust resistant hybrid cultivars. We are very much looking forward to both cupping the competitors’ roast approaches to these cultivars, along with discussing our respective perceptions about the quality and cup profiles of hybrids.
