2015 Brazilian Aeropress Championship results

National Aeropress Championships Results

espresso-6
A championship depends on its sponsors. They are in alphabetical order: Brazil Specialty Coffee Association, Coffee Lab, De´Longhi, Fazenda Ambiental Fortaleza, Industrial Atilla, ísso é café, Mahlkönig and Terceira Onda Consultoria em Café. In addition we want to thank Feito a Grão and last but not least, Aerobie. Without Aerobie none of us would be having any fun at all.

 

The BAC started relatively on time with eighteen contestants ready to show their mettle. The judges were ready and the crowd hungry for coffee. Those not present could watch from the comfort of their home, subway or bus as we streamed the entire event live in addition to the photographers and a film crew. The first round went as first rounds go. Lots of good coffee and all cups open to the public after the judges were done. After all, running a comp is about educating and always getting better so everyone that wanted a sip got one.

 

As intermission we had food available and Cervejaria Urbana was there with a mean brew, Gordelica, hoppier than most and fermented with a Trappist yeast giving it a full and fruity finish. A perfect match to the nights pleasures. We also set up s public brewbar with Aeropresses, V60 and a La Marzocco Strada! Everyone was enjoying good coffee this evening.

 

The semifinals were even more exiting and the judges were able to track certain people through the second withering down. Working blind does not mean dedicated professionals can´t spot a steady hand on the aeropress.
Before the finals, ísso é café, the new webshop of FAF, presented us with a new hit film about the aeropress. Watch it yourself and enjoy as the groove catches you and fills you with the urge to aeropress. Again, all cups open to the public after judging.

 

In the finals, Simone de Assis Marcili (Fazenda Ambiental Fortaleza), Edgar Martins (Urbe Café) , and João Francisco de Paula Perez (Coffee Lab) went head to head to produce some really good coffees. The coffees were clean, sweet and engaging and emerging on top we had:

 

1st place: Edgar Martins
2nd place: João Perez
3rd place: Simone de Assis Marcili
