Just when we had the deckchairs arranged precisely as we wanted them, in swoops the good folk of Established Coffee with a late entrant to the Championship circuit, and a stellar poster to boot.


I was lucky enough to work with these guys on an event some months ago, and they really know how to put on a great night. While competitor tickets are nearly sold out already, make sure you go along for good times and great beer.

The AeroPress Championship is a competition open to anyone who can brew a great cup of coffee using the AeroPress. It is open to anyone and everyone, all you need is to secure your place online, turn up on time with your AeroPress & brew! You could be 3 coffees away from winning a trip to Seattle, to represent Northern Ireland at the World AeroPress Championships. Full details below, any questions, tweet us @NIAeropressComp.

It’s shaping up to be a great night. It’s free entry for spectators, there will be beer from Prohibition, pizza, as well as Sherryvallies DJ’s & we’ll be sure to squeeze some coffee in there somewhere! Heckling & fan clubs are 100% encouraged.
