Well, here it is people: the 2014 World Aeropress Championships poster. We’ve had an incredible amount of national competitions in the lead up to the 2104 WACs; more than ever. It’s amazing to see how many countries have embraced the competition and all have kept the vibe alive. This is the 7th annual World Aeropress Championship.
This year, the WACs will literally be held on the beach! Here are the details :

The competition is full to the brim, here is the growing list of competitors. We are expecting around 30 nations to compete, all of which have held national competitions. Winners of national competitions must now sign up – registration will close on Friday 30th May. Registration for pre-approved national competition winners can be done here : www.worldaeropresschampionships.tictail.com
Co-hosting the event will be La Marzocco, who have graciously offered to share the Turquoise Beach Club with them. They’ll be a BBQ and appropriate refreshments on hand. Music will come from coffee’s premier disk jockeys : the SPRUDGE DJs. Look out for the newest addition to the competition ‘Extract-o-vision’ by VST, essentially live competitor extraction readings on the big screen.
More information on the competition will filter through in the coming days, but until then, you’ll need to make sure you’ve booked your flight to Rimini and packed your swimming costume!
