Do you remember that time on the beach in Rimini? The sun… The sun was so sweet. And as we drank vaguely warm lager, wiped down our Aeropress and looked at each other, we knew without even saying it; ‘Baby, life will never get any better than this…’. God, we were so wrong.
Mark your calendar, girl. Set your alarm, book your flight and tell the babysitter to settle in for a long evening; on Thursday April 9th, 2015 we’ll be at WithinSodo in Seattle, Washington for the 2015 World Aeropress Championship.
We have over 3,000 square feet of post-industrial splendour in which to see competitors from thirty-two nations vying for the only title that really matters, master of the plunge, 2015 World Aeropress Champion.
Libations will be gratis (that means free beer, and is how we speak in England) courtesy of local craft brewers who are still to be confirmed, and some of Seattle’s finest street food purveyors will be parked up out front to keep everyone fed and fuelled until late (but non-gratis, so bring cash).
As WithinSodo is a licensed wedding venue, and has copious experience in performing nuptials, any couples wanting to finally realise their dream of a group wedding held in conjunction with the World Aeropress Championship final — and frankly, who doesn’t? — should get in touch about the very attractively priced spectacle that we can make of your special day.
With a proper backstage preparation area for competitors (just like a real competition!), live action beamed onto the big screen, the incomparably sweet beats of DJ Taste of Bitter Love coming all the way from London, and more, more, more, WithinSodo will WithoutDoubt be the best World Aeropress Championship venue yet.
Don’t miss it.

“Resuming the KAC competition that discontinued for two years since 2012 has a great meaning. For this competition many businesses, over forty, joined as sponsors and various events helped the completion of this competition.
For two days 45 competitors took part in KAC competition and performed diverse abstraction progresses. The top 3 Aeropress recipes from the 2015 Korean Aeropress Championship.
The host company DesignCoffee designed and produced official post of KAC and showed various design products. For two days 45 competitors took part in KAC competition and performed diverse abstraction progresses. All related photos and data are available on official homepage of KAC.

Without question, one of the most professionally run Aeropress championships was imagined by China. The event was held in the lobby of a department store with massive screens with live round updates and a seemingly impressive crowd of onlookers. Kevin from Green Coast Coffee was responsible for the epic event, an we thank him and everyone that supported the event – Kevin, if you need a judge from WAC headquarters, we’d love to judge the 2016 CACs!
Here are the top 3 methods from the 2015 China Aeropress Championships :
