Solberg & Hansen established in 1879 which makes them by far the oldest specialty coffee roasters we’ve ever reviewed. The two coffees we have were runners-up at the Nordic Roaster Forum competition (second only to Tim Wendleboe) and both exceptional in their own way.
Solberg & Hansen were established in 1879 which makes them one of the oldest coffee roasters we’ve ever worked with. The challenge in this ad was to convey their deep history without getting too technical or laden with information-keeping it simple is always key.
The Nordic Roaster Forum is an annual event hosted by The Factory Roast lab and runs in conjunction with the Nordic Barista Cup.
It was my first time at a coffee forum and for such an intimate event I was amazed at the amount of high level experts attending. Spanning three days with more cuppings and talks than one person can handle, it is considered widely to be a key seminar on most coffee roasters calendar.
