US AeroPress Championship to take place in NYC

Under Line Coffee is hosting the United States AeroPress Championship in New York City, on 29 March. Competitors from across the US will go head-to-head in heats of three to see who can brew the best cup of coffee using an AeroPress coffee maker. Aerobie, Inc., makers of the AeroPress coffee maker, have made custom gold, silver, and bronze AeroPress trophies for the top three winners. Aerobie will also fly the winner to Seattle, to represent the US in the 2015 World AeroPress Championship on 9 April. Stanford engineering lecturer Alan Adler invented the US-made AeroPress. He is the same man who invented the Aerobie flying ring. The World AeroPress Championship, now in its eighth year, has grown to nearly three-dozen national competitions worldwide. Past World Championships have taken place in Rimini, Melbourne, Portland, Milan, London, and Oslo. Coffee experts Tim Wendelboe and Tim Varney founded the Championship in Oslo, Norway in 2008. The Turkish Aeropress Championship 2015 took place recently – see the video.
