2016 Competitors Part Two.

June 1st 2016, see’s the return of NI AeroPress Championship! This year our event will be held in the Black Box, in Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter. This is a special year, as the World AeroPress Championship is being held in Dublin later in June.

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…fan clubs, bring the noise!
