Very proud to announce a 7th consecutive national Aeropress championship at Caffenation. This way we are the longest active organizer on earth. :-)

Friday evening 14 September 2018: Qualifications 

Friday evening 21 September 2018: Finals 

(note: If we don't have more then 27 participants we stick to just 1 evening: 21 September)

Hours, coffee, poster and judges will be announced later on the summer when subscriptions open. 

For sure the winner wins a trip to the WAC in Sydney Australia in November 2018. 

Here already the updated rules:
