Roast Hero 2024 Coffee Bundle

Orders will start dispatching from Friday 24th of May

Fancy getting to taste the Roast Hero 2024 competition coffees yourself? This bundle includes:

  • 3 x 120g of the Roast Hero top mandatory, Peru Emma Rioja Washed.Roasted by the 1st, 2nd and 3rd placed Roast Heros in our industry/peer blind tasting.
  • 10 x 60g of washed process coffee.
    One of each sourced coffee, submitted from each of the 10 competing roasters.

Not all heros wear capes and we know that some of the best industry experts are hiding in roasteries across the country! For Glasgow Coffee Festivals 10th year, GCF invited 10 independently owned Scottish micro roasters to compete for the title of ROAST HERO 2024!

The Roast Hero competition is a peer-assessed challenge that takes real-world roasting experiences and puts the knowledge and skill of Scottish roasteries to the test. There is a wide range of elements that shape a great coffee roaster, and the Roast Hero competition is designed to be an accessible format with a focus on roasting and sourcing skills resulting in the most delicious coffee!

GCF gave each roastery the same coffee to roast, Peru Emma Rioja donated by Falcon Coffees, and they were judged blind by the Roast Heroes and a panel of judges. The Roast Heroes of the mandatory round was:

1st - Cult Coffee Roaster

2nd - Dear Green Coffee Roasters

3rd - Machina Coffee Roasters

GCF also invited each roaster to submit a coffee from their own range. These coffees were tasted blind and voted for by the roasters themselves and visitors attending GCF24.
