Coffee By DiBella Hosts World AeroPress Championship, Mumbai Chapter- Breaks World Record with more than 60 entries! Winner of the Indian AeroPress Championship to represent India in London at the World Aeropress Championship 2019.
Mumbai, 14th September: The World AeroPress Championship is a global coffee-making competition with an aim to discover the world’s best cup of AeroPress coffee. Having won the title last year, Coffee By Di Bella, hosted the Mumbai chapter on 14th September at the Coffee By Di Bella outlet at Vama, Peddar road. The competition witnessed the highest number of competitors than any other city with 56 baristas putting forth their best recipes to the ultimate test. The excitement was palpable as baristas discussed their favorite techniques and geared up to focus their attention on brewing the perfect cup of java joe!
Each season is comprised of a series of regional and national competitions, run by independent hosts across 60 countries, which culminates with the World AeroPress Championship finale that will be held in London. Competitors had 8 minutes in which to prepare, brew, and present their renditions of the jitter juice to a panel of three judges- Shravan from Kalledevapura estate, Ajay, Q grader, and Indian Barista Championship judge, Shreedev from Hullikere estate, Siddharth Q grader and SCA certified trainer. The judges evaluated each coffee and made their own assessment as to which is the best. No scoresheets or discussion just 100% personal preference.
The winner of this year’s Indian AeroPress Championship will be representing India in London at the World Aeropress Championship 2019. The winning Baristas of the Mumbai Chapter were Mr. Mahesh Khatre from Blue Tokai, Miss Pooja Margonde from Coffee By Di Bella and Mr. Mehul Ved, a home barista.
Rahul Leekha, Director, Coffee By Di Bella says, “Our broader aim was always to educate our patrons on the art of coffee drinking and brewing. The association with the World AeroPress Championship and the honor of hosting this event has been great. Being able to provide the stepping stone for an overwhelming number of coffee lovers, sharing insights with baristas that have coffee running through their veins has been a tremendous experience! At its heart, the World AeroPress Championship exists to bring coffee-loving people together in an open, inclusive, and fun environment.’
