And so, for a second consecutive year, Taiwan will host their national championship with the committed organisational skills of Jonathan “Sunbear” Chao Ph.D. who has been a tireless supporter of the AeroPress championship for many years. He was also a 2016 Chinese AeroPress Championship judge. He has a Ph.D. in AeroPress Philosophy.

The event will be held at the cafe, Woolloomooloo in Taipei. Woolloomooloo means: ‘too many Os’ in Taiwanese Mandarin. This year the competition coffee will be roasted by none other than Jacky Lai, the 2014 World Coffee Roasting Champion. The coffee has yet to be announced, but we’re certain it’ll taste delicious.
