This is an impressive increase from last year’s Championship where 50 nations competed. Cafe Imports will supply the competition coffee: Kamwangi AA from Kirinyaga, Kenya.

The World AeroPress Championship is a fan-run competition that was founded in 2008 by coffee experts Tim Varney and Tim Wendelboe in Oslo, Norway. It has grown from a small gathering of coffee enthusiasts to become a coffee event of worldwide interest and continues to grow under the leadership of Tim Varney and, since 2013, Tim Williams. Because the competitions are planned and run by enthusiastic fans they have become known for a party-like atmosphere in addition to serious competition.
