First-ever at-home coffee brewing championship launches in Dubai

Been brewing coffee like a champ while spending time at home recently? You may as well get some big cash prizes out of it with Dubai’s massive championship.

Dubai-based specialty coffee company Mokha 1450 is hosting the first-ever home coffee brewing championship, and everyone has the chance to win USD2,000 (around Dhs7,345) and plenty more.

Kicking of today (Tuesday March 31) until Tuesday April 28, coffee brewers will need to make what they think is the perfect brew, so all you need is a home brewing coffee gadget, and of course, coffee.

Pique your interest? To enter, upload a video on Instagram creatively making the home coffee brew, along with the inventive technique. Put the #homecoffeebrewingchampionship hashtag, and tag Mokha 1450 and World Home Coffee Brewing Championship.

Ten finalists will make it into the final round of the Home Brewing Championship on Monday May 4, with the championship being announced on Thursday May 7.

The champion will take home USD$2,000 (around Dhs7,345), a limited-edition custom hand-carved Chemex featuring Mokha 1450’s marabea design, and four bags of Mokha 1450’s Single Origin coffees.

As for second place, expect USD$1,000 (Dhs3,672), a custom made Aeropress, and two bags of Mokha 1450’s Single Origin coffees, while third place will take home USD500 (Dhs1,836), a hand coffee grinder and one bag of Single Origin coffee.

“In response to these trying times we’ve put together this special event to lift people’s spirits and provide those isolated in their homes around the world with an opportunity to come together around coffee, one of the world’s most unifying (and delicious) subjects,” said CEO of Mokha 1450 Garfield Kerr.

“We hope the competition will spark discussions that will demystify brewing coffee at home, and give people stuck in self-isolation the chance to connect with other coffee lovers, cafes, and baristas around the globe.”
