REC 2019.jpg

We are convinced that a sustainable development within our place of coffee market is depending on the comprehensive exchange and sharing of experiences and know-how. 


We need to share and learn from each other. 


For this very reason of experiment we get the opportunity to take a look at

Hong Kong roaster’s “interpretation“ of their coffees and can share their roasting philosophy to others.

The Roastgem Experimental Cup [REC] 2019 will be held on the 16th to the 18th in August.

[REC] structure:

  • 10 participants ( Micro Coffee Roaster )

  • 10 participants ( Production Line Coffee Roaster )

  • 3 Sensory Judges panel are selected from across the Hong Kong coffee industry and are engaged based on their outstanding industry knowledge and expertise.


All qualifier participants roasters will have to roast the provided coffee in line with their preference

and style on their roaster machine of choice. 

The participants and judges will be evaluated the roasted coffee by the cup-tasting method and will be tasted blind. 

The participant roaster that gets the highest total score will be rewarded the title “REC Best Roaster 2019“.


For the purpose of diversity, we will introduce Batch Brew session for public testing and voting.
The coffees will be evaluated by the coffee brewers method and will be tasted blind.

The highest score will be award “The Most Flavor Coffee“.

Roastgem Experimental Cup [REC]是一場令人期待的烘焙活動,



我們有很多咖啡烘豆師,在香港有很好的聲譽,隱藏或剛起步。 他們將自己的心機和熱情傾注在烘焙的咖啡中。

事實是公眾缺乏機會了解咖啡吧背後的重要角色 - 咖啡烘豆師。

[REC 2019]將於8月舉行,分享本地咖啡烘豆工藝和資訊的多樣性。



  • 10位烘豆師(小型咖啡烘焙)

  • 10位烘豆師(生產線咖啡烘焙)

  • 3名感官評審小組從香港咖啡行業挑選,並根據他們卓越的行業定位和專業知識進行邀請。



獲得最高總分的烘豆師將獲得“[REC] 2019 Best Roaster”。

為了多元化的目的,將通過 batch brew 方法進行評估公眾人仕參加品嚐會

最高分烘豆師被頒予“The Most Flavor Coffee”。
