The judges agreed that Sprenger consistently brewed the tastiest cup in the competition. Nathan Hoida of Alterra Coffee Roasters in Milwaukee, Wisconsin took second place and Madeline Carr of Comet Coffee in Ann Arbor, Michigan took third place.
Aerobie®, makers of the AeroPress coffee maker, will fly Sprenger to Melbourne, Australia to represent the US in the 2013 World AeroPress Championship held during the World Barista Championship between the 23rd and 25th of May.
The US-made AeroPress coffee maker makes one to four cups of coffee in one minute using a unique brewing process which minimizes bitterness and acidity. It has become a favorite of serious coffee professionals and amateurs alike for the amount of flexibility it permits in the brewing process. Michael Phillips, 2010 World Barista Champion and one of this year’s US AeroPress Championship judges, has been known to brew coffee using an AeroPress coffee maker while traveling on board an airplane.
