2016 Danish Aeropress Championship

Sunday 6th of March the Danish Aeropress Championship was held here at our Godthåbsvej location. The event was planned and carried out by The Coffee Collective but supported by Mikkeller and Øristeriet, who is the Danish distributor of Aeropress.

This year we had 18 competitors competing against each other, and the tickets were all sold out in no time, which says a bit about the popularity that this competition is experiencing at the moment.

 

Generally, the Aeropress Championships are all about bringing people together and having fun while the tournament is running. And let us just say that our spectators did not disappoint us here! Accompanied by fresh beer on tap and delicious coffee, they cheered and created an amazing frame for our competitors. A lot of fantastic cups was brewed that day, but in the end Tania Arnfjord took the title with her Wilfa grinder and sharp routine, and she will now represent Denmark at the World Aeropress Championship in Dublin later this year.

We wish her the best of luck and look forward to a great show in Dublin.

 

In the mean time we will look back on a great day with the little video above and maybe give the top 3 recipes a go as well.
