The first Mexican Aeropress Championship took place on Saturday 28th, from 9am to 6pm – a full day of festivities. The coffee used was a washed coffee from Yucuiti, Oaxaca. The variety was 100% Typica from the producer Joel Vázquez López.
1st place Ximena Rubio
2nd place Shak Zapata
3rd place Diego Marroquin
The most interesting thing to note is that Mexico is investing in their barista future by adding a parallel event for kids! There were some very enthusiastic minors interested, the underage event, with 6 kids competing aged from between 14 to 16 years old, managed to display some great skills with excellent results in the cups.
