(vorbei) 2019 World Aeropress Championship: 24.11.2019
Global coffee battle plungers into London
Look sharp, coffee lovers — descending upon this green and pleasant land for the first time since 2010, the World AeroPress Championship (W.A.C) is coming to London. On Sunday November 24th, 65 of the world’s best coffee brewers will travel to Bethnal Green, East London, where they’ll compete for the title of ‘2019 World AeroPress Champion’. And attendees will be at the heart of the action, getting the chance to taste the competing cups at the end of each round.
This global championship and its cult-like following centres on coffee brewed with the AeroPress; a plunger-style device adored by coffee fanatics, which retails for around £25. Having defeated thousands of counterparts in their home countries, national champions from as far and wide as India, Australia, Timor Leste, Chile and Iran will battle to see whose coffee brewing reigns supreme.
It’s serious business, but all in good fun, with the perfect blend of skill and luck needed for a win.
So how does the madness work? The W.A.C is a multi-round, elimination tournament of competitive coffee making. Competitors have just a few minutes to brew a single cup of AeroPress coffee and present it to a panel of judges, who blind taste each coffee and pick the cup they find the tastiest. In each round of three, the competitor with the tastiest brew moves on through the tournament until just one competitor remains. This year’s competition coffee will be kept top secret until just before the first round kicks off. Competitors will have only four hours to taste the coffee and perfect their recipe before taking to the stage to brew in front of an eager crowd.
But what’s in it for the spectators, I hear you ask… good question! At the end of each round, competitors will make their way to the Competitor Brew Bar where they’ll brew their recipes for the audience. This is a once-in a-lifetime chance to taste coffee prepared by literally the world’s best AeroPressers, all under one roof. The competition coffee will be also be available for attendees to try as an espresso or oat m*lk latte.
In addition to bucket loads of the world’s finest coffee, there’ll be a fully-stocked bar and a selection of the capital’s best street food vendors to keep spectators hydrated and nourished.
Who will have this year’s world title to add to the trophy cabinet at the end of the night? No matter the outcome, this celebration with like-minded coffee fanatics from over 65 countries is a sure-fire win.
Early bird tickets are £13 and general admission starts at £17. For the full ‘access-all-areas,
drink-for-free’ enchilada, VIP packages are a lazy £42.50.

Der Begriff “Spezialitätenkaffee” wird durch von der SCA entwickelte und weltweit auferlegte Qualitätsstandards geschützt. Derzeit gibt es mehrere Standards in den Segmenten Wasser, Cupping und grüner Kaffee. Eingeführt wurde der Begriff “Specialty Coffee” bereits 1974 von der Norwegerin Erna Knutsen während einer internationalen Kaffeekonferenz, als Bezeichnung von Kaffeebohnen mit besonderen Merkmalen, die mit entsprechender Sorgfalt geröstet und zubereitet werden. Die SCA baut heute mit ihrer Arbeit auf diese Definition auf.
Heute ist das Spezialisierungssegment der am schnellsten wachsenden Zweig der Kaffeeindustrie. Nach den USA ist das größte Wachstum in Europa sowie Asien zu verzeichnen. In etwa 11.500 Mitglieder zählt die SCA heute. Die Top 20-Staaten mit den meisten Mitgliedern listen sich wie folgt: USA, Südkorea, UK, Italien, Taiwan, China, Russland, Schweiz, Griechenland, Deutschland, Kanada, Spanien, Niederlande, Frankreich, Ukraine, Australien, Irland, Türkei, Polen, Brasilien.
SPECIALTY COFFEE ASSOCIATION
Die SCA, gegründet 1982 in New York, ist eine mitgliederbasierte Non-Profit-Organisation, die Mitglieder in über 100 Ländern repräsentiert, von Farmern, über Röster, bis hin zu Barista. Die SCA unterstützt Maßnahmen, um weltweit eine maximale Qualität von Kaffee zu etablieren. Ziel der Organisation ist es, die Qualität von Kaffee vom Anbau bis in die Tasse aufrecht zu halten und für den Konsumenten so transparent wie möglich zu gestalten. Im Zentrum der Verbesserungspotenziale stehen die Interessen aller, die am Anbau und am Verkauf von Kaffee beteiligt sind – eine ganzheitliche Analyse von Lieferketten, die von den Ursprungsländern der Kaffeekunden bis zum Neukunden reichen. Die zweite tragende Säule der Organisation bilden Bemühungen um die Nachhaltigkeit der Kaffeeerzeugung und Weiterverarbeitung.

(vorbei) Glasgow Coffee Festival: 04.05. – 05.05.2019
Scotland’s coffee connoisseurs will soon be descending on The Briggait for their biggest caffeine kick of the year as the Glasgow Coffee Festival returns. And once again it looks set to sell-out, with all early-bird tickets to Scotland’s largest coffee festival already snapped up.
Organised by Dear Green Coffee Roasters, the two-day event will showcase Scotland’s burgeoning speciality coffee scene. A feast for the senses, visitors can expect taste sensations from artisan roasters, top class cafés and brilliant baristas, and they can pick up a trick or two at the masterclasses, workshops and demonstrations. Plus, there’ll be plenty to inspire their creative side, from latte art to a film premiere.
As if that wasn’t enough, the Glasgow Coffee Festival is thrilled to announce the best palates in the business will battle it out in the United Kingdom Cup Tasters Championship organised by the Speciality Coffee Association – UK Chapter. Contestants will slurp their way through eight sets of triangle tests (three “cups” of coffee where two are the same and one differs) to spot the odd one out. The competition gets increasingly harder as the coffees in each set get increasingly similar. The results are instant as contestants lift their cups to discover if a red dot on the base tells them they have spotted the odd one out. It’s the coffee equivalent of a penalty shoot-out! For those looking to get in on the action themselves, there’ll be a Cupping Lab where visitors can sniff, sip and scrutinise a variety of offerings from the world of coffee.
Following the overwhelmingly positive response to the event organiser’s decision to move away from disposable cups last year, the Glasgow Coffee Festival will continue to pioneer a culture change and embrace reuse where and whenever possible. Visitors will be asked to bring their own reusable cup to the event to help combat the 30,000 tonnes of coffee cup waste produced in the UK each year. Event sponsors KeepCup will also be on hand to loan reusable cups to anyone who needs to borrow one for the day.
And, just as in previous years, all profits from the festival will be donated to two great causes. This year they have chosen World Coffee Research and Glasgow City Mission as their charities of choice.
The festival has completely sold out in previous years so coffee lovers are advised to head to the website to book their tickets now to guarantee entry to a bonanza of beans, brewers, baristas and bars.
The Glasgow Coffee Festival will take place on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th May 2019, 10am – 6pm, at The Briggait, Glasgow. Tickets start at £16.50 and include admission to the event, a goody bag, one hot drink and entry into the prize draw.

Specialty coffee shop, HOME, (Jonasstrasse 23, 12053 Neukölln) are hosting the first in a new series of events; Female Latte Art Throwdown 2019 (FLAT 2019). The competition takes place on Friday February 8th, and the winner will come away with two hundred euros in prize money. Alongside the latte art competition there is a full programme of events, including a networking evening for coffee lovers, a public cupping and a Q&A with Vertical Coffee Roasters.
Created by the team at HOME, FLAT 2019 is an open coffee event, with an overall aim to bring together female coffee professionals (baristas, trainers, roasters, etc.), the local community and everyone interested in enjoying good coffee in a safe, inclusive environment. The FLAT 2019 event series will provide a friendly networking environment and with a strong focus on female empowerment.
Agnieszka Hornstein, head barista and manager of HOME said, ‘By organising FLAT we will provide a relaxed, safe and bias-free opportunity to female identified coffee professionals to have fun, compete and make new professional and private connections with like-minded people. The coffee industry is a tough and challenging environment for female professionals in terms of being given equal access and career opportunities, and by launching FLAT, we aim to provide a new platform for females in the industry.’
The main part of the event is a 4-round competition in pouring latte art. All rounds will be held using OATLY Oat Drink Barista Edition provided by OATLY, the events main sponsor. The coffee being used in the competition will be supplied by Berlin roastery Kaffee 9 with beans that for various reasons were not good enough to qualify as a quality product, which is a very kind gesture on the side of roasters to share with us – in the spirit of zero waste movement.
Everyone interested in coffee (whether professionally or just curious) who wants to support gender equality in coffee industry is welcome to watch the competition part and join for the after party networking event.
