Ciao ciao! It’s the 2nd Italian Aeropress Championship!

Following last year success Terrone Coffee and IMS Filtri are glad to bring the 2nd Italian Aeropress Championship back to Milan.

This year location is Bioesseri’ in Via De Amicis.

Sunday 1st of March 2015 at 4pm

A brew bar with free tasting of hand brewed coffee will be available all day, followed by the usual aperitivo Italian style!

The 18 competitor slots have been filled in less than 3 hours! This is a true record. Maybe because the winner will be sent to SEATTLE to represent Italy in the WORLD AEROPRESS CHAMPIONSHIP!

Flights and accommodation have been kindly offered by our super sponsors.

They have also offered tons of gadgets available for runner ups.

Mahlkonig EK43 and Brita water will be available on the Bunn boilers.

We have roasted an amazing single origin from Kenya kindly offered by Falcon Green importers!

2015 Dutch Aeropress Championship

airpresposterA2small

Another brilliant poster for the 2015 Dutch Aeropress Championships.

Op vrijdag 13 maart organiseren wij voor de tweede keer achtereen het Dutch Aeropress Championship. Hij gaat weer plaatsvinden in onze vestiging op de Oosterdokskade in Amsterdam.

Wij zijn sinds de Aeropress in Nederland te vinden is fan van deze veelzijdige en simpele zetmethode. De aeropress is een kunststof zetsysteem voor koffie. Alan Adler, bekend van de Aerobie-frisbee, vond hem vanuit persoonlijke enthousiasme voor goede koffie uit. Het resultaat was een ronde buis met een papieren filter onderin. Een rubberen ring zorgt ervoor dat de koffie handmatig door het filter wordt gedrukt. Tegenwoordig worden alle filterkoffies in de Coffeecompany gemaakt met Aeropress.

Het leukste aan de Aeropress is dat er zo veel mogelijk is. Daarom is dit de favoriete methode van veel van onze barista’s. De methode is zo veelzijdig dat dit jaar in tientallen landen nationale competities zijn en in 2008 het eerste wereldkampioenschap werd georganiseerd in Oslo.

In tegenstelling tot veel koffiewedstrijden is deze laagdrempelig van aard. Alle deelnemers gebruiken dezelfde koffie, en strijden via een afvalmechanisme tegen elkaar. Wie de lekkerste koffie voor de driekoppige jury maakt, gaat door naar de volgende ronde. De winnaar mag zich niet alleen Nederlands Aeropresskampioen noemen, maar gaat ook begin april naar Seattle voor het wereldkampioenschap.

Inschrijvingen openen hier vrijdag 13 februari om 10.00 uur. Kosten zijn €20,-. Natuurlijk is iedereen die geïnteresseerd is welkom op 13 maart!
