We can’t all be a reigning world Aeropress champion, though through the wonders of the information age, any of us can take a crack at brewing like the champ, either at home or in the café.
This year the top honor was earned by Filip Kucharczyk, founder of Poland’s Cafe Targowa and co-founder of the roastery Czarny Deszcz, and the team at European Coffee Trip has agreed to share their step-by-step video in which Kucharczyk demonstrates his winning recipe.
