Lukas Zahradnik Representing Green Plantation Coffee and Slovakia Wins the World Aeropress Championship

Green Plantation barista and an official coffee nerd Lukáš Záhradník is the 2015 World Aeropress Champion. This is second time in the history when Slovakia brings a trophy in making coffee in Aeropress. In 2014 it was Martin Karabinoš, who was representing Dublin Café Prešov.

You can meet Lukáš at our stand in the newly opened Trnava market where he and his partner Simonou Madleniak will treat you to excellent espressos and coffee drinks.

See you there!

Simona knows ... Lukáš can do it!

Lukáš kills with a look ...

This beverage is for the audience... or not?

Not every Aeropress was good ... it seems

Tim Varney is rapping and Ben Kaminsky sings to Jiři's ears (Doubleshot CZ) ... we think ...

We love Nick Hatch from Canada, with his "Nick" T shirt and "Nick" tatoo on his chest. We could not confirm the tatoo on his chest.

Finalists ready to be shot... with cameras...

The Brits... represented by very charming Polish lady Paulina Miczka

Ben Kaminsky is tired, check out Anne Lunell from Koppi... no comment

The First Starbucks... Simona a Lukáš are enjoying some awesome music... it really was awesome... really!

My precious #1

Promo time!!! Green Plantation is a ... bla bla bla bla

Lukáš is "slaving" at the Aeropress stand at the SCAA Event in Seattle
