US AeroPress Regional Championship expands due to popular demand

From the July 2017 issue.

In response to competitor demand, this year’s United States AeroPress Regional Championships will expand to nine host cities.

The regional competitions started in June, and are now spread over July and August, including regional competitions in Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, Honolulu, New York City, Billings, Washington DC, Bellingham, Tampa and San Francisco.

The regional winners will compete in the finals event, taking place 6 September at the La Marzocco Cafe at Kexp in Seattle, WA.

“We've taken inspiration from the hugely successful Australian season format, with events in lots of states, and applied it to the US,” says event organiser Tim Williams.

The Australian regional season dates are soon to be confirmed, with the Victorian event already sold out on 17 August.

Competitors will go head to head with their AeroPress devices and put their best brew recipes to the test.

The winners from each knock-out round will progress until there is one barista left standing with the title of the Victorian AeroPress Champion.

The winner will win a flight to the Australian Championship on 9 September in Sydney.

All national winners will compete in the 2017 World AeroPress Championship, taking place in Seoul, South Korea.
