We've been incredibly fortunate to have been able to help nurture the World AeroPress Championship community from just a handful of people in a room in Oslo, to the many thousands of participants our event connects with today.
Although, when a community like ours grows, staying connected to community members becomes increasingly difficult. There are times where we know we're missing out on hearing the opinions and feedback of the people that make our community so great. We want to change that.
Through Patreon, we feel we can bring our supporters together and use their insight and contributions to make our community better.
We want to be able to better showcase the recipes that win national and world championships, and also to share how each champion arrived at their method of brewing.
We'd like to be able to crowd-source ideas about the competition and other events that are of interest, directly from the people who most likely to attend them.
We believe that we can continue to make the World AeroPress Championship a fun, inclusive, and community-focused event, long into this new decade.
And that's just the tip of the iceberg — together, as a community, we think we can achieve even more!
If you're a competitor, a judge, a host, or just a lover of AeroPress coffee, we'd love to have you join us. Head to patreon.com/aeropress and sign up as a supporter.
