Best photo of an Aeropress ever.

Are you ready for the third annual World Aeropress Championship?

The Aeropress, from the makers of the Aerobie line of sporting products, is one of the most versatile brewing devices. With over one hundred different ways of making coffee go brew, it was a good idea to throw together a competition like this.

People from all over the world can submit recipes online or compete in person. The competition will be held at the Brew Bar in conjunction with the World Barista Championship in London.

The competition will be held on Wednesday 23rd June and Thursday 24th June.

Previously the WACs have been held in Oslo, Norway. Year on year the competition has built from a humble ‘garage’ arrangement to a full-blown stadium spectacular this year at the Brew Bar of the WBC in London.

The emphasis is on taste and having a bit of fun. Being able to brew a beautifully balanced cup is key – there are no presentation skills required, just to serve the sponsored coffee in it’s best light.

The rules are fairly straight forward, 5 judges will evaluate, purely based on taste, the best filter style brew from the Aeropress. We want the competition to be as transparent as possible, with the intention of fine tuning the hugely varied technique used to brew on the Aeropress.
