What a weekend!
This year we we decided we wanted something bigger and better for the Singapore AeroPress Champs so we took it to Singapore Coffee Festival 2017.
Thirty-six contestants battled it out over nine rounds but only one could be the winner.
It was great to see so many home brewers stepping up this year with Jia Hao Koh making it through to the final along with Christian Alvarez of Jimmy Monkey and Jerald Teng of Nook & Cranny.
Our judges panel of coffee legends comprised of Marian Aguila of Cata Coffee, Terrance Tan of Santino Coffee Specialist, Siraj Salim of Dutch Colony Coffee Company, who also happens to the reigning Singapore AeroPress Champ, and head judge, Lisa Matthews of Leo & Lisa's Organic Coffee Farm.
It was a tense moment when it came down to the final three with each judge taking careful sips of the coffees before making their final decision but in the end each judge choosing had their favourite, leaving it down to the head judge, Lisa Matthews, to make the final decision, and the winner was.....
Jerald Teng of Nook& Cranny! Congratulations again!
Our home brewer finalist, Jia Hao Koh, took second whilst Christian Alvarez of Jimmy Monkey walked away with bronze. Can't wait to hear what happens at the World Championships in Seoul later this year!
Thanks again to the Singapore Coffee Festival team, SPH, our sponsors Marco, Acaia & AeroPress who all made this event possible!
