Oh boy! Just to keep you guessing, how about a last minute change of venue for the Irish competition? No longer will competitors throw down at Joe’s Coffee, Montague Street, they’ll face off instead at Hatch & Sons, 15 St. Stephen’s Green, Dublin 2.
Oh my word, they’re coming in thick and fast now.
Not content to co-host just one Aeropress Championship per season, this year sees Workshop Coffee Co. teaming up with Joe’s Coffee, Dublin and TKC Sales to co-host the 2015 Irish Aeropress Championship.
On March 14th at 6:00pm, twenty eager competitors will vie for the title of 2015 Irish Aeropress Champion and the opportunity to represent Ireland at the World Aeropress Championship in Seattle come April. Alongside the obvious glory, the winner will be provided with return flights and accommodation for the event (so be sure you’re able to travel to the USA at short notice!).
Tickets for entering as a competitor are available at www.workshopcoffee.com/IAC2015 for £10 each and purchases are limited to one per person*. Spectator entry is free and in addition to the excitement of the event there’ll be hot snacks and cold beer for all.
Competitors will compete using coffee from Workshop Coffee Co., and will be sent a 250g bag of the actual coffee to practice with ahead of the event. A fresh roast of the same coffee will be available on the day.
Your judges for 2015 — James Bailey (Workshop Coffee Co. – Head of Quality), Mate Szekeres (Joe’s Coffee – Head Barista) and Monika Palova (3FE – Coffee Roaster) –will be blind selecting the most delicious brew placed in front of them each round; not the most technically-proficient or perfect, just the one they’d want to drink.
