Thanks to all of you who played Barista Magazine‘s Humpday Giveaway this week! The prize up for grabs was pretty awesome: a diner mug from Gimme! Coffee in New York, plus a bag of Linda Vista from Honduras. Special thanks to Eric from Gimme! for hooking our winner up with this sweet prize!

Gimme! green buyer Colleen with Linda Vista owner Joel Guzman. At just 10 acres, the Linda Vista family farm doesn't produce much coffee annually, but what it does produce is simply exceptional.

So the trivia question we posed yesterday here on the blog was a little tricky:

WHAT YEAR WAS THE NEW ZEALAND BARISTA GUILD FORMED?

In her Field Report: New Zealand article in the February/March issue of Barista Magazine, Jessica Godfrey writes that discussions about forming guilds began in 2011. However, the New Zealand Barista Guild wasn’t officially formed until 2012. Finding the correct answer took a little digging, but 12 of you got it right on the money!

So it was time for us to do the drawing…

Publisher Kenneth Olson (wearing a Blazers shirt 'cause it's game day, and drinking from the Washington Huskies mug I made him because they're playing in the Pac 12 Classic today) shows me the cup full of scraps of paper, each bearing the name of a person who answered our trivia question correctly.

And the name I pulled from the cup was….

Why it's Marie Cullinan for the Library Coffeehouse in Tampa!
