Roastery Masterclass Live! roasters attend star-spangled event

Top head roasters from the UK and further afield met earlier this month at a star-spangled event hosted by the organisers of European Coffee, Tea and Soft Drinks Expo, together with Jamie Banwell, director of European Sales at Diedrich Roasters LLC.

The roasters were all hugely excited to be participating in Roastery Masterclass Live!, a brand new, world-first feature launching at the show in May this year.

Roasters, including Courtney Snowden, head roaster at Ozone Coffee Roasters, Elias Minkiewicz, head roaster at Nord Coffee, together with Jamie Boland and Luiza Fuquim owner and head roaster respectively from Ancoats Coffee.  

Each discussed their unique perspective on the importance, complexity and skill involved in the roasting process. Their secrets will be revealed at the show as they live roast on site and provide exclusive insights into their particular techniques. 

The evening also included a much-applauded demonstration from Banwell at Diedrich. Roasters at the show will be live roasting on the acclaimed 5kg Diedrich machine. 

Banwell said of its participation in the show:“I was attracted by the ability to demo and do a masterclass and get the message about roasting across. I think the industry needs a light shone on that. We are excited and proud to be the partner in this.”

Each 40-minute session will be hosted by Stephen Leighton, managing director of Has Bean Coffee and Howard Barwick, European business development manager, Olam Specialty Coffee Europe.
