Welcome to Portugal AeroPress Championship
Portugal AeroPress Championship is a local chapter of coffee movement born in Norway in 2008 and spread in over 70 different countries ever since.
It’s a competition like no other, however no level of expertise is required – as long as you’ve brewed an AeroPress at least once before, you’re skilled enough to compete on (Inter)National level!
