While it seems like only yesterday we had the warm sands of Rimini beach between our toes, and the even warmer glow of a late summer sunburn crawling across our shoulders, it is indeed time to get moving on the 2015 World Aeropress Championship season.

And dating back to time immemorial (2009), our season begins with finding the willing, the able and the worthy to host National Aeropress Championship events, all across the globe. In 2014 we had around 35 National Champions make their way to sun and sand of Italy to compete for the world title, and for 2015 we want to see even more make their way to the rain and clouds of Seattle, vying for glory.

2014 Malaysian AeroPress Championships

 

Baristas and home brewers gave it their all at the Malaysian National Aeropress Championship which took place at the Bee in Publika. The competition was an opportunity for baristas and home brewers to show off their skills and understand where they stood as professional coffee brewers.

Sixteen participants from all over the nation ranging from Penang to Johor participated in the event. Wan Amirul Haziq, 21 who lives in Subang Jaya was one of the participants at the competition. “I joined this competition because I know that coffee making is a form of art”, said the first time competitor. The competition consisted of four stages – qualifiers, quarter finals, semifinals and a final round, all of which each competitor was given eight minutes to prepare their coffee. “The competitors were required to bring their own equipment and coffee beans but it is up to the judges to decide the winning cup which has a perfectly balanced taste,” says Daniel Liew, Academic Director of Barista Guild Asia. One of the judges, Chiam Tow Jin, said that a balanced cup of coffee consists of equal levels of acidity, body, aroma and flavor.

Liew also said that the champion will be given a chance to show off their skills next year in April at the World Aeropress Championship which will be held in Seattle, USA. Barista Guild Asia started the Malaysian Aeropress Championship last year and it has been an annual event ever since. The organisation is a coffee training academy for those who have a strong passion for not only making but also consuming coffee. The championship was sponsored by Coffee: Nowhere, Auresso, MyEspresso and AeroPress.

Recovering from a heavy Halloween hangover? Happen to be in Santa Cruz? Love the Aeropress and want to taste some of the best coffees from Norway?

Then head to AeroCruz, a one day pop-up in Santa Cruz, California on Saturday, November 1st from 10am to 3pm.

The event was put together by Ingri M Johnsen (the 2nd place getter during the 2012 World Aeropress Championships) and with the help of Verve, Assembly and Chip Trudeau.

There will be coffee from the heavyweights; Tim Wendelboe, Kaffa, Solberg & Hansen, Supreme Roastworks and the new Norwegian Japanese supergroup, Fuglen.

It all sounds delicious.
