Coffee aficionados from all over the world will be heading to Lisbon, Portugal, this September for the 2024 World AeroPress Championship.

In addition to the main competition — which is expected to feature some 60 national winners from all over the world — the WAC organizers are adding two features to this year’s program.

First is the WAC Roaster Village, where guests will be able to sample coffees served by highly regarded specialty coffee roasters from throughout Europe.


Also new this year is the AeroPress Invitational, in which invitees selected by the WAC team will go head-to-head against coffee brewing legends with the hope to earn a spot on the world final judging panel. It’s free to apply and registration for selected invitees will be €50.

Of course, the coffee gathering also serves as an all-around celebration of the AeroPress, the modest manual brewing device invented by Aerobie flying device creator Alan Adler two decades ago.

Legend has it that the competition started as a friendly challenge between three coffee people at Tim Wendelboe’s roastery in Oslo, Norway, in 2005. Since then, the fun-loving event has snowballed into an international gathering in which coffee novices and pros alike can plunge, press and pour their hearts out on the competition stage.


The main competition involves a three-person head-to-head-to-head format, with one winner emerging from each round until only one person remains. Last year, it was Tay Wipvasutt of Thailand who took the title.

Early bird tickets for the 2024 WAC are available through the end of this month for €15 before jumping to €20. The 2024 WAC events will take place at the Suspenso Lisboa venue on Sept. 19-21.
