DUBAI – DMCC – the world’s flagship free zone and Government of Dubai Authority on commodities trade and enterprise – brought 18 of the top coffee roasteries in the GCC together for the first Middle East edition of the “A Shot in the Dark” roasting competition. The competition, which has been running across Southern Africa for over five years, saw competitors issued with three types of green coffee beans from Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, and Tanzania, roasting each bean individually and then creating an espresso blend to the best of their ability.
