La Marzocco is proudly hosting, on Friday, June 1st, the 2018 Italian AeroPress Championship in Milan at the world-renowned Deus Cafe venue – the must-go lifestyle destination for makers, cyclers, surfers and motor-bikers.
On this day (June 1st), La Marzocco, World AeroPress Championship (WAC) and Modbar – who enjoy a common passion for quality coffee, experimentation and inclusive events – will bring together more than 30 competitors and the local community from all over Italy.

The national WAC layover will serve as an ideal platform where brewing trends, sub-cultures, convivial experiences, coffee education and entertainment come to blend seamlessly.
Special judges invited to Deus Cafe in Milan include our Enrico Wurm (Product Improvement Manager), Alex Gable (Coffee Education Expert), Michela Becchi (journalist at Gambero Rosso), Veronica Fossa (founder of WE Factory), Carlos Zavala (Spanish AeroPress Championship organizer and former champion) and Elisabetta Paviglianiti, head-barista at Cofficina.
As per past editions, the winner of the AeroPress Competition in each country gets the outstanding opportunity to compete in the World finals, taking place this Fall in Sydney, Australia at the first stand-alone WAC event.
With a partnership that officially kicked-off in 2014, La Marzocco and World AeroPress Championship have since then teamed up to internationally promote the importance of sociable, fun competitions while raising awareness around coffee, its culture, the specialty movement and alternative methods to prepare, story-tell and indulge in caffeinated beverages.
