The United States have been plugging away organizing (organising) a series of coast-to-coast Regional AeroPress Competitions, leading up to their national U.S. AeroPress Championship which will be held alongside their SCAA Expo and USCC Barista and Brewers Cup Championships in Atlanta, Georgia.

United States AeroPress Championship
at Chattahoochee Coffee Co.
Saturday, April 16, 2016

All 1st Place Winners from the U.S. Regional competitions will be flown to Atlanta to compete, and 2nd & 3rd Place Winners will be offered a space on the competition brackets as well. Remaining spots will be available by online sign-up form, first come first served, after all U.S. Regional events have taken place.

The U.S. AeroPress Championship will be offering an obscene amount of fancy prizes, with a grand prize of a ticket to Dublin to compete at the World Championship. They have a pretty crazy shindig planned, so mark your calendars. Stay tuned on the World AeroPress Championship Blog for sign up info: www.worldaeropresschampionship.com and on Instagram @U.S.AeroPressChampionship
