Fun AeroPress fact -

There's a few two time national champions this year & 2 of the two-time champions are the only ones to have ever won an Aeropress championship in their countries - The Maldives and Estonia.


Below is the recipe that Rahu's used last year to win the Maldives championship... I wonder how different her recipe will be this year?!
