Hosting Guide

Your one-stop guide to hosting a successful World AeroPress Championship event.

Updated Rules

Each year we make necessary updates to the rules and policies of the WAC. Be sure to familiarize yourself with this year's updates to eliminate the chance of your national champion being disqualified.

If a national champion does not comply with the official rules, they will lose their eligibility to compete in the world final.

Please clearly communicate the rules with competitors to avoid disappointment.
