It's the return of NI AeroPress Championship! It will be held in the Black Box, on Tuesday 19th September. Following on from the last two years, we cannot wait to crown a champion who will go on to represent Northern Ireland at the World AeroPress Championships which are being held in Seoul, South Korea in November!
The AeroPress Championships is a competition open to anyone who can brew a great cup of coffee using the AeroPress. You do not need to work in a coffee shop, plenty of past winners from countries all around the world have been “home baristas”, all you need is to secure your place online, turn up on time with your AeroPress & brew! You could be 3 coffees away from winning 1st place and going on to represent Northern Ireland at the World AeroPress Championships. Full details below, any questions, tweet us @NIAeropressComp.
As always, it's free entry for spectators. Alongside the competition, there will be coffee served in partnership with La Marzocco & Bailies Coffee, beer from Boundary Brewing, doughnuts from Guilt Trip, as well as great music & we'll be sure to squeeze some coffee in there somewhere!

***SPECTATOR TICKETS HAVE NO LIMIT – FREE ENTRY TICKET DOES NOT GUARANTEE ENTRY ON THE NIGHT*** – as these tickets are free, people often request more than they need, or just secure a space on the off chance that they can go. We want the event to be a great success and want as much support for the competitors as possible, so we will be operating on a first come, first served basis.
