The Coffee Roasters Guild (CRG) in partnership with the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) has announced that registration is now open for CRG Retreat, an annual gathering of coffee roasters from around the globe. This four-day educational event is designed for roasters with a wide range of experience and skills. The 2023 CRG Retreat is taking place 28 September to 1 October at the Semiahmoo Resort in Blaine, Washington, USA.
2023 Retreat attendees can look forward to lectures, workshops, cuppings, gain exclusive access to the
industry’s leading machines in the Roasting Tent, experience collaborative networking during the Team
Challenge, and get a first-hand look at the Coffee Value Assessment and its tools. For those looking to
compete in a future US Roaster Championship, Retreat also offers a US Roasting Championship
Past attendees at CRG Retreat have described the event as “summer camp for coffee professionals” and “the most down-to-earth, diverse, and fun overall industry event I’ve attended.” Baylee Engberg, Pacific Northwest account manager at Ally and managing director at #shestheroaster shared, “Coffee Roasters Guild Retreat is returning! Not only is Retreat my favorite coffee event, but arguably the most beneficial for roasters and tasters alike. Whether you’re looking to learn to roast from scratch, form stronger community connections, taste the coffee lexicon, try your hand at a new machine, or simply just win the Team Challenge — this event is for you.”
The Coffee Roasters Guild and Diedrich Roasters are pleased to offer the 2023 Diedrich Roasters
Scholarship Program for CRG Retreat. The Diedrich Roasters Scholarship Program will be awarded to five scholars and is designed to offer financial assistance to members of the coffee community to help further their knowledge and take advantage of the opportunity to develop and advance their skills in roasting.
