Thanks to everyone for an amazing night at the WACs, thanks to everyone who came and supported and thanks especially to 5Senses for hosting and the incredible generosity of all the sponsors. Music and dance-offs were provided by the boyz of SPRUDGE.
Thanks also to the judges, Tim Wendelboe, Casper Engel Rasmussen and the multi-talented Ben Kaminsky who was also MCing.
A massive congratulations to our top 3 competitors in the now two-time World Aeropress Champion, Jeff Verellen from Caffenation in Antwerp, Belgium, the 2nd place getter all the way from Finland, via Portend Oregon, the wonderful Wille Yli-Luoma and taking 3rd place was the charming Tibor Varady from Espresso Embassy, Budapest.
Jeff will be flown all the way to Oslo to attend the epic Nordic Barista Cup in September and will be paying a tonne of money for excess luggage due to the giant smorgasbord of prizes from Baratza, Handsome Coffee Roasters, Market Lane Coffee, Able Brewing, OTTO and Aerobie.
