About the Event

June 1st 2016, see's the return of NI AeroPress Championship! It will be held in the Black Box, in Belfast's Cathedral Quarter, a venue which will allow us all a little more space and puts the competition on a bigger stage. This is a special year, as the World AeroPress Championship is being held in Dublin later in June.

The AeroPress Championships is a competition open to anyone who can brew a great cup of coffee using the AeroPress. You do not need to work in a coffee shop, plenty of past winners from countries all around the world have been "home baristas", all you need is to secure your place online, turn up on time with your AeroPress & brew! You could be 3 coffees away from winning 1st place and going on to represent Northern Ireland at the World AeroPress Championships. Full details below, any questions, tweet us @NIAeropressComp.

As always, it's free entry for spectators. Alongside the competition, there will be beer from Boundary Brewing, the Belfast debut of the Picture Bus as well as great music & we'll be sure to squeeze some coffee in there somewhere! Competitors, bring your fan clubs, bring the noise!

***SPECTATOR TICKETS HAVE NO LIMIT - FREE ENTRY TICKET DOES NOT GUARANTEE ENTRY ON THE NIGHT*** - as these tickets are free, people often request more than they need, or just secure a space on the off chance that they can go. We want the event to be a great success and want as much support for the competitors as possible, so we will be operating on a first come, first served basis.
