Such an incredible, unique and creative bunch the Prairie Coffee Collective guys and gals are. They’ve had both a competition for the production of the 2016 Canadian AeroPress Championship poster, and a competition for the selection of the competition coffee. We absolutely love this approach, and because of it they’ve landed on one of our favourite posters this year.

The winner of the Canadian AeroPress Championships Official Coffee Roaster competition is Transcend Coffee of Edmonton, Alberta. 17 Canadian coffee roasters submitted their coffee in unmarked white bags. The mystery coffees were cupped by a national tasting panel.

The national tasting panel consisted of 16 highly trained coffee professionals across Canada. They each voted for their top 3 coffees. First place was given 5 points, second place was 3 points and third place 1 point. All votes were calculated, and our winner was determined.

Transcend Coffee of Edmonton has been chosen by the Tasting Panel as the official 2016 Canadian AeroPress Championship Coffee Roaster, and will supply all the coffee to the competitors for the competition.

Although the seventeen coffees submitted were from roasters all across the country, it was an Alberta sweep – in a close second place was Rave Coffee of Canmore, Alberta. In third was Rosso Coffee Roasters of Calgary, Alberta.
