Last year, Single O brought the Australian Aeropress Championship to Sydney. This time around, the roasters will host the mecca of all coffee competitions — the 2018 World AeroPress Championships. The event will take place on November 17, when 60 coffee brewers from around the globe will compete to win the title of best AeroPresser out there.
Top-notch coffee isn't the only draw card, either — Single O has again collaborated with leading Sydney chefs on the event's food offering. and this year's theme is something of a world-wide sausage sizzle.
First off, Moon Dog will be slinging free tinnies and Cow & the Moon will be scooping pavlova gelato for free, too. For main eats, there's shoyu-glazed hot dogs with wasabi slaw and vegan smoked chilli dogs from Rising Sun Workshop; nahm jim jaew-inspired grilled eggplants and pork sausages from Boon Cafe; and maple and spent coffee from Rocker and LP's Quality Meats.
ForeignDub's DJ Blackhawk will provide the tunes while the brewers go head-to-head. After the competition — and your epic feast — head to the Competitor Brew Bar where you can nab a taste of some seriously good cuppas, prepared by the best in the business.
General admission tickets will cost you $25, or the $65 VIP ticket gets you access to the pre-party on November 16 — which includes a meet and greet with the competitors at Single O's Surry Hills digs, followed by barefoot bowls at Clovelly Lawn Bowls Club.
