2 judges of 3 confirmed :

Rob Tuttle : VP of Coffee Excellence, Thrive Farmers

After spending the first part of his career in corporate America in operational roles with companies like Neiman Marcus and Home Depot, Rob leaped into the world of coffee in 2003 when he opened his own coffee house in the Northern suburbs of Atlanta and began his pursuit of excellence in coffee.

Since 2005 Rob has been involved with the United States Barista Championship and the Specialty Coffee Association of America. In 2009 he became one of seven United States based World Barista Championship Certified Judges and served as a judge at the WBC 2009 and 2011. He has also been invited to Judge Internationally in Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador and Peru, serving as the Head Judge and Instructor for many of the Championships. Currently Rob is the Co-Chair and Head Judge of the USBC and a Judge for WCE events (WBC), as well as a Certified Lead Instructor for the SCAA. Rob has been featured in Fresh Cup Magazine, Specialty Coffee, Gourmet News and numerous trade magazines and blogs.

Rob has traveled in the US and abroad teaching and training the coffee craft. Young or old, from experienced to amateur, he has been able to help people from all walks of life improve their coffee skills, which in turn, enhances their enjoyment of this timeless ritual.

THRIVE is dedicated to educating coffee lovers on all aspects of coffee, beginning with the farmer at origin and continuing through to an amazing experience in the cup. In his role with THRIVE, Rob presides over everything we do related to that outcome with a meticulous, yet practical, approach to quality.

Rob lives in the greater Atlanta area with his wife, Beth, and two children. Beyond coffee he finds great enjoyment in martial arts, cycling, craft brewing and travel. He is an active member of Mountain Lake Church in Cumming, GA.

Jeremy Moore : Founder, Bonlife Coffee

Jeremy has spent his life travelling the globe in search of the perfect coffee. From the island of Hispaniola to Burma and beyond, he loves to share a good cup with the people whose lives are most affected by the crop. In his role at Bonlife, Jeremy spend much of his time working with farmers to ensure quality, consistency, and deeper relationships.

He is a SCAA certified lead Instructor, member of the SCAA Roasters Guild, and the Alliance for Coffee Excellence. When he’s not searching for the God Shot, he spends time with his wife and two sons playing random games and looking for ways to make people laugh. His favorite cup is a light roast Ethiopian Natural through Chemex, but he’ll likely come back as poorly executed Aeropress of something dark.

Mystery Judge : Third Judge will AMAZE…

Norwegian Aeropress Championships


As you may know, the Aeropress Championships were born in Oslo, specifically at Tim Wendelboe and the first World Aeropress Champion was but a humble home brewer of the name Anders Valde. His exact whereabouts are a delicious mystery, but it’s thought you can still spot him frequenting the best of the best coffee bars and roasters in Oslo.

Unlike the mysticism of Anders Valde, the 2014 Norwegian Aeropress Championship are alive and approaching. Oddly, there has never been a Norwegian national competition, but the committed folks at Kaffikaze have set the stage. Details at this point are scarce, but important details are as follows :

2014 Norwegian Aeropress Championships
The first ever NAC will be arranged by Kaffikaze in collaboration with Nordic Approach and Tim Wendelboe.

Location – Barista School, Tromsøgata 5b, 0565 Oslo, Norway
Time – 16:00, 22nd March, 2014

More details will follow. If you’re wanting to host a national Aeropress competition, please get in touch with WAC Headquarters.
