2017 Scottish Aeropress Championship

The Aeropress Championships are a fast-paced, engaging and light-hearted coffee competition. Competitors compete to brew the best cup of coffee they can using primarily an Aerobie Aeropress, which is then judged blind by three judges. The winner is crowned national champion & goes on to represent their country in the World Aeropress Championship. The competition is open to everyone from home enthusiasts to professional baristas.

Last year's event was a huge success, with music, coffee, avocados toast competitions and more.
