At the end of January, I had the chance to attend the Eastern Regional Aeropress Championship at Quills Coffee in Louisville, KY. If you're a coffee fan and have never attended an event like this, I highly recommend you check one out. The competition had an awesome turnout, with competitors traveling to Louisville from Washington DC to Nashville and nearly every state in between.
Eighteen baristas and independent coffee fans competed for the chance to represent the region at the US Aeropress Championship in NYC. After three intense rounds of competition, Chris Heiniger was crowned champion, with Dmitriy Zhigunov and Brian Beyke rounding out the top three. Check out some photos from the event below:
