Come meet Scott Rao as he visits Adelaide

Author of four of the most influential books written about coffee, Scott Rao is coming to Adelaide.

Scott will host a casual discussion of the simple changes almost all of us can make to improve our roasts.

Scott will share roasting insights gleaned from his work with 100s of roasting clients around the world, and discuss both simple changes to yield immediate improvements, and some not-to-simple changes most roasters can make to manage their roast curves better.

Approximate time: 90 minutes

Recap from the Bar 9 Outreach Adelaide Latte Art and Coffee Cupping

Here’s some shots and a quick video cut from our August event, run in conjunction with and sponsored by Five Senses Coffee.

Highlights on the night were the great coffee talk and coffee cupping about the innovative and inspiring Veer Attikan farm from India.

A Manual vs Machine brew down where we put manual (ie/ people brewed coffee) vs semi automated brews care of the Marco SP9, the results of which were surprising!

And of course the full throw down.  Where host Jeremy of Five Senses came through as a wild card and went on to win the night, narrowly beating out Bar 9 resident and current South Australian Latte Art Champion Celeste Dixon.


A huge thank you to everyone who came along to the event.  We can’t wait for the next installation.
