We are super excited to announce the dates for Creative Coffee Week 2020!

For the 3rd year in a row, Durban will play host to some of the World's leading coffee celebrities and for 3 days they will hang out and impart their insights into coffee and generally just mingle as we run through the CCW programme.

Creative Coffee Week is unlike any other event on the Coffee Calendar. It's a chance for the top people in coffee ( and those interested in coffee) to get together, discuss relevant issues in coffee in SA, to share knowledge, to compete in A Shot in the dark, drink great coffee, discover new equipment and techniques, learn from experts in other fields...and generally just geek out amongst coffee friends. 

It all culminates with the Gala Dinner and the Coffee Magazine Awards  - a fitting celebration to reward the excellent people and businesses in coffee for 2020.

Save the date!  We hope to see you all there!

Tuesday, 24 September, 2019

On Sunday, November 24th, the world’s best coffee brewers will head to Bethnal Green, East London where they’ll compete for the title of 2019 World AeroPress Champion.

Having defeated thousands of contenders in their own countries, these national champions will take the stage where the eyes of the coffee world will be firmly on them.

With just eight minutes on the clock, they’ll brew the best cup of AeroPress coffee they can while our panel of judges decides their fate. By night's end, we’ll have crowned a new champion. 

The South African competition has been set for Thursday 17th October in Cape Town hosted by the wonderful Tribe Coffee Roasting.

One of the best creative parts of this competition is the local hosts coming up with insane posters. See a couple of our favourites from this year's crop below. We can't wait to see the South African contribution to this pool of creativity! You can check out all the beautiful artworks on the World Aeropress Champs instagram page.
