June 1st 2016, see’s the return of Northern Ireland AeroPress Championship! This years the event is in the Black Box, in Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter. It’s a really special year for coffee enthusiasts in Ireland, as the World AeroPress Championship is being held in Dublin later in June as part of the global event World of Coffee. Thousands of coffee professionals and enthusiasts will descend upon Dublin to compete in various competitions and to take part in many different coffee related events. It will be caffeine induced mayhem!
But how about that poster eh for the Northern Ireland Aeropress Championship ? Great work from local lads Glenn Kennedy & Tim Farrell.
As always, the Northern Ireland Aeropress Championship is 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!

Last years Northern Ireland Aeropress Championship winner was Ballymena’s very own Jonathan Hickinson from Middletown Coffee Co. The winner goes forward to compete for Northern Ireland at the World Aeropress Championship. A few of the Middletown staff will compete this year along with lots of other coffee professionals and enthusiasts from around Northern Irelands growing coffee scene.

Click here to see the list of competitors. Three members of the Established team are competing so naturally we want to cheer on Mark, Johnny and Nathan a bit louder than the rest! The Northern Ireland massive!
But, you know what else we love about Aeropress Championships? We keep seeing amazing posters being created for them! My other [real] job is as a ‘designer’ so I appreciate a lovely sweet looking poster….
Here are a few of our favourites
During the last week of February we ran a Barista/Selfie contest – see the winner here. This little bundle of beautiful things arrived with Richie today… we are jealous because we know how great that coffee is and don’t have any for ourselves! lol!
I wonder what the next contest can be… stay tuned
Last weekend we decided to have a bit of fun and offer some kind of FREE coffee give-away in exchange for some selfies with your barista[s]…
I think we picked an awkward task eh? We didn’t consider that not as many of you as we expected would be cool with rocking up to the barista in a coffee shop and asking for a photo with them… seriously? In this age of selfies and photo overload on the web? hehe
Richie was one of the brave few to step up and we loved this fun pic so much that he had to win! yay! The photo was taken at 5A Lockview Road in Belfast which we didn’t know about until now. It looks awesome so that means we just discovered another coffee shop… that’s a win right there!
Last time we ran a similar contest we gave away a lovely coffee subscription. This time we picked one of our favourite coffee roasters in the UK, Square Mile and have selected a few tasty beautiful things just for you Richie! Enjoy!
