Is this World Championship a real thing or more like the International Pineapple Cake Competition in Nantou or the Yilan Global Beef Noodle Awards?

Maybe more like that “Gold Medal” Taiwan Beer won.

It seems to be a roasting championship exclusively?

Looks like one Taiwanese competitor at least:

I think it’s as legit as these industry things get, the body running it a subsidiary of the SCA.

I also think a sour, mouth puckering, lemony coffee is going to win it, if people from the SCA have anything to do with judging it that is. As that is the current trend with the bearded, tattoo sleeved hipsters operating these roasters.
