2009 WAC world final
1st Place: Lukasz Jura, Poland
2nd Place: Ben Kaminsky, USA
3rd Place: Alexander Scheen Jensen, Norway
The second championship took place in Oslo, again. Having caught wind of this strange undertaking, Alan Adler — the inventor of the AeroPress — made a special one-off “bronze”, fully functional brewer as a prize for the winner. For each season since, and now for every single national competition, AeroPress produce a gold, silver and bronze AeroPress as trophies for the top three competitors. Of the 22 competitors Lukasz Jura — a barista from Stockfleths Kaffe — won first place.
