Welcome to Thursday, guys—let’s find out who this week’s Humpday Giveaway winner is!

This is the apron. How awesome is that??

This is the apron. How awesome is that??

Costas Pliatsikas—past Swedish Barista Champion—created the Intelligent Dosing Ring (IDR) himself, and it has been gaining popularity in the tens of thousands around the world.

The IDR sells for $79 (U.S. residents, you can buy yours from 1st Line!), and the bag of coffee and apron are pretty valuable, too. But one of you lucky readers is about to win all three of them!

That's the IDR, clipped onto the top of a portafilter. You clip it on before dosing, and then snap it off (it's super easy), saving coffee grounds that would otherwise have been wasted, and make your shot. It'll save you and your cafe thousands of dollars in waste!

So let’s get to it!

You all submitted your guesses for the answer to this trivia question, which—as all Humpday Giveaway trivia questions do—came out of the current issue of Barista Magazine.

QUESTION: QUESTION: What are the names of three of the authors who contributed articles to the new book, “Coffee: A Comprehensive Guide to the Bean, the Beverage, and the Industry”?

ANSWER: Any combination of the following: Sarah Allen, Jonathan D. Baker, Peter S. Baker, Jonathan Wesley Bell, Clare Benfield, H. C. “Skip” Bittenbender, Connie Blumhardt, Willem Boot, Carlos H. J. Brando, August Burns, Luis Alberto Cuéllar, Olga Cuellar, Kenneth Davids, Jim Fadden, Elijah K. Gichuru, Jeremy Haggar, Andrew Hetzel, George Howell, Juliana Jaramillo, Phyllis Johnson, Lawrence W. Jones, Alf Kramer, Ted Lingle, Stuart McCook, Michelle Craig McDonald, Sunalini Menon, Jonathan Morris, Joan Obra, Price Peterson, Rick Peyser, Sergii Reminny, Paul Rice, Robert Rice, Carlos Saenz, Vincenzo Sandalj, Jinap Selamat, Colin Smith, Shawn Steiman, Robert W. Thurston, Steven Topik, Tatsushi Ueshima, Camilla C. Valeur, Geoff Watts, and Britta Zeitemann

Great job to everyone who entered and gave the correct answer (and of course included the required information of first and last names plus country of residence)!

We put everyone who got it right in the pool, selected one at random, and voilá! We’ve got a winner, and it’s Sander de Putter of the Netherlands!

Congratulations, Sander! We’ll be contacting you shortly by email for your mailing address so Costas can get your awesome gift pack in the mail to you right away!

As for the rest of you, we’ll see you next week for Humpday Giveaway when we’ll give away another fabulous prize. Cheers!
