Nuno Park of Cherry Beans Coffee Roasters has won the 2023 New South Wales AeroPress Championships staged at Ona Coffee in Sydney on 19 October.
Sydney barista Mohamad Ali Malli placed second while Michael Rast of Toby’s Estate Coffee Roasters placed third.
Nuno beat 36 other hopefuls to take out the title and will now head to Melbourne, Australia to contest the World AeroPress Championships from 1 to 3 December 2023.
The World AeroPress Championship is a global coffee-making competition, designed to find the world’s best cup of AeroPress coffee.
Each season is comprised of a series of regional and national competitions, run by independent hosts across 60 countries, which culminates with the World AeroPress Championship final.
The competition itself is a multi-round elimination tournament. In each round, three competitors will face off against each other, simultaneously brewing a single cup of coffee using the AeroPress brewer.
The judges evaluate each coffee and make their own assessment as to which is the best, based solely on personal preference. On the count of three, the judges simultaneously point to their favourite coffee, moving the winner on to the next round while eliminating the losers.
