    Golden Bean - no home roasting division?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I just clicked on to the Golden Bean site and took a look at the roasting competition entry guidelines. I couldn't see a home roasting division this year. Say it ain't so!!!

    Just an oversight I expect... certainly hadn't heard that the category was being dropped.
    I think last year it was a separate form so maybe they haven't put it together yet.

    Don't panic, I'll ask the source and post back here.

    Sorry for the lag in reply, there was a lot going on and it's now finalised.

    Seems that managing the additional home roaster entries was a burden on the competition resources as the commercial guys have record entries every year.

    However the good people at the Golden Bean were happy for us to run the back-end admin (entries, payments, categories etc) and still use the industry professionals to make and judge the coffees at the event.

    I'm more than happy to do the admin through BeanBay and I thought I would take the chance to make it an even better home roaster category.

    Please see this thread for more info:

    I'll lock this thread now, please shoot any questions into the above thread.
