About the World AeroPress Championship
In 2008, a good and simple idea came to two coffee lovers: “Wouldn’t it be fun to see who could brew the best cup of AeroPress coffee?” And with that simple idea, the World AeroPress Championship was born.
The first competition took place in a small room in Oslo, with only three competitors and Tim Wendelboe as the judge. It was a modest and understated affair.
Like many ideas good and simple, the competition has since grown organically, and now spans 140 regional and national events taking place in over 60 countries.
Each season now sees more than 3,000 competitors getting involved, and yet, despite its size, the competition remains a fun, inclusive and light-hearted pursuit.
Today, the World AeroPress Championship is organised by a team of three, working from a small office in Melbourne, Australia. They drink way too much coffee, but that’s kind of what it takes to make this event happen.
