Welcome to this week’s Humpday Giveaway! It’s another Wednesday (at least here in Portland, Oregon, it still is anyway), and we’ve got another great prize up for grabs. Actually it’s a book all about our hometown’s awesome coffee scene!
Industry veteran Will Hutchens has crafted an incredible story by interviewing the most influential coffee people in the city of Portland, and finding out from them why Portland’s coffee scene has been such an exciting phenomenon. The book, Caffeinated PDX, is now available for sale, at $21.99. Go to the website for more details. But one of you lucky players is going to win your very own copy!
