Patrick Rolf Karlsson: “There is no perfect coffee, only different kinds of coffee to suit different kinds of people”

Final lecture of 2015 with Five Elephant head of Roasting.

Book Your Place!  

The final talk in our 2015 Lecture series will be the suave and exciting Patrick Rolf Karlsson. He has been touring Europe over the summer giving talks CoLab in Paris, Prague Coffee Festival and the Glasgow Coffee Festival about his role as Head of Roasting at Five Elephant in Berlin. You’ll know him from his recent Coffee Masters second place performance in London. And his powerful penchant for collecting wild flower specimens.
He cut his teeth at Da Matteo and in the WCE coffee competition circuit.
But mostly we are compelled to host him in our final lecture night of 2015 because we could not resist the allure of such talk titles as ‘There is no perfect green coffee, there is no perfect roast, there is no perfect brewing, there is only a perfect combination’…and… ‘What defines a modern roastery?’
Come hear about what is in our opinion, the most gorgeous modern branding and packaging in coffee right now. Meet the company that designs amazing tampers and dosing tools like this and hear an intensely inspired voice in modern coffee roasting QC, barista training and notably…and all too often neglected…style!
We give you Patrick Rolf Karlsson.
Doors 7pm on the 10th of December at Prufrock.
