It gives me great pleasure to announce the 2014 Australian Aeropress Championships.

The competition will take place on Friday 16th May at FILTER from 7pm. It’s during MICE, so all sorts of coffee celebrities will be in town.

This year will feature the top 18 Australian Aeropressers, made up of the top 5 from Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland, who have all run regional competitions. The NSW and Queensland competitions are happening this weekend – get involved! They’re all legit and game ready. Three spots will open for future Aeropress champions from the other Australian states and territories – entrance for these spots will open up on Monday 5th May. Keep your eye on twitter for announcements…

Coffee for competitors, details on sign up, judges and MC announcements will be coming soon… Most importantly, the winner will be flown to Rimini to compete in the World Aeropress Championships in June.

Small Batch’s new venture FILTER will be hosting the event with booze support from Napoleone and burger support from Huxtaburger. Everyday Coffee’s multi-talented DJ Mark W. Free will be on the decks, as will the sparkly workhorse wonders of SPRUDGE, who’ll offer the freshest most dazzling grooves from the USA. It’ll be your chance to get a little

The other exciting nugget of information, is that Eileen P. Kenny in conjunction with the newly formed Sprudge Publishing will be launching the 2nd volume of her lovely inquisitive and insightful Birds of Unusual Vitality book. Copies will available on the night, and if you charm and flirt with her in just the right way, she might even sign a copy for you too. More on Sprudge Publishing soon…

This year’s killer poster was imagined and produced by another multi talent from Everyday; Aaron Maxwell.
