Despite highs and lows in turnout for U.S. AeroPress brewing competitions in recent years, the 2016 AeroPress Championship season started with a huge bang, and right in the heart of America: Chicago, Illinois. Some 400 folks showed up to watch the competition on February 27th, sandwiching The Great Lakes Coffee Showcase—a new event dedicated to Chicago micro-roasters—and a latte art throwdown hosted by New Gotham Coffee. “The drive behind the GLCS was to foster a grassroots event that could slowly meet the demand for connectivity in the region that was previously met by USBC Regionals,” said Andrew Bettis (Cafe Integral, MRAC Organizer) “We wanted to form an event that was approachable and connected enthusiasts, professionals, and roasters.”
The coffee scene in Scotland is popping off right now, with top roasters like Dear Green Coffee and Artisan Roast leading the charge, and cafes in Edinburgh and Glasgow making a name for themselves far beyond the Mairches. At the United Kingdom Barista Championship just a few weeks ago, we watched on as competitors from Scotland represented themselves quite well on the national stage, with 4 of the 20 semi-finalists hailing from either Edinburgh or Glasgow.
With the recent addition of a series of in-depth video brew-guides for the Aeropress, Chemex, Clever, French Press, and Hario V60, their site just may be one of the best sources of consumer coffee education on the internet.
