This Saturday we're shutting down our Baxter Avenue café a little early to host the Eastern Regional of the US Aeropress Championship. Invented by Alan Adler, the Aeropress is a single cup brewing device prized by coffee aficionados for its versatility and compact size. Many of our baristas are known to carry an Aeropress in their travel coffee kits and we couldn't be more excited to host coffee professionals and home baristas from across the East Coast.
The bracket-style competition will pit baristas against each other in groups of three, with only one competitor advancing from each group. The top three competitors will receive an assortment of prizes from our sponsors Prima Coffee, Acaia Coffee, Baratza, and Able Brewing and the chance to compete at the US Aeropress Championship in Long Beach, California.
The event starts at 7:00 PM and is free and open to the public. We'll have pizza and beer from Danville crafter brewers Beer Engine. With coffee professionals from over a dozen companies and 6 states competing- it's going to be a party. We hope to see you there!
