Morten has been working in coffee roasting since 2005. He was originally employed as a coffee roaster after graduating with a Master’s Degree in Biology and Philosophy. In 2007, he started his freelance career as a coffee roasting teacher at the London School of Coffee and also worked as a consultant for coffee roasters worldwide.

With his extensive experience in training, he was asked to take over the development of the SCAE’s roasting certification system in 2013. He formalised and established ongoing research at the SCAE as part of his part-time role as an external lecturer at the University of Copenhagen, and has thus far generated more than 20 research projects, of which five are published in scientific journals.

In the same year, Morten decided to expand his activities and started CoffeeMind, a Copenhagen-based coffee academy providing unique educational coffee courses, research and consultancy services within the various areas of the specialty coffee industry.
