On the 17th of March, Condesa Co.Lab and Proud Mary Coffee Roasters will host the 2016 Australian AeroPress Championship.
On the night, Australia’s best brewers will be stirring, steeping and pressing coffee generously supplied by Condesa Co.Lab and roasted by yours truly, PMC. Inspired by the Thunderdome of Mad Max, there’ll be beers, disco balls, food trucks, a DJ and a few other surprises along the way.
All wildcard entries have been filled so we’re set for a huge night of friendly competition! The wildcard round will kick off the comp, beginning at 6:00pm.
Following this are the knockout Preliminary Round and Semi-finals, before the Grand Final between the last two brewers standing. The ultimate Australian AeroPress Champion will go on to represent the country in the World AeroPress Championships, taking place in Dublin in June.
To get there, baristas will need to impress a panel of esteemed judges including Muki Yeung (Condesa Co. Lab), Anne Cooper (Equilibrium Master Roasters) and Mike Sullivan (Proud Mary Coffee Roasters), as well as special guest judges from Dinner by Heston, Real Wines, and an international coffee producer from Brazil.
“This is an open-to-the-public event and we’d love to get as many people down here to come and get amongst the action,” says Lisa Feeley of Proud Mary Coffee Roasters.
Save March 17th in your diary for a night celebrating belter brews and high speed car chases through the desert. Party is on and all are welcome!
