Happy Humpday, everyone! We just got back from Coffee Fest Seattle the other day, and what a great time we had. One thing we just loved was hearing from so many readers out there that they love the Humpday Giveaway contest! Hundreds and hundreds of you have told me you always check out the Humpday Giveaway prize, but some of you don’t always play. You’re worried you can only win once, or that you’re not supposed to play very often. But that’s not the case! You can play as many weeks as you want—every week, in fact! You only get to enter once a week, true. But anyone who has won in the past is still eligible to win again. So keep on playin’!
And another thing: how about these Humpday Giveaway prizes, eh? Our partners like Baratza and Prima and Espresso Parts and Stumptown and Visions and Behmor and Board and Bread and Importika and Toddy and Coava and BeanLink and Annotated Press and Verve and Birch Coffee and 3FE and Gimme! have donated such amazing prizes for us to give away to you each week… we couldn’t be more thankful.
We’re taking the pressure off of them this week though, and offering up, for the first time ever, the brand-new tshirts from Barista Magazine! These shirts aren’t for sale—they’ll only be available through contests like this and other special events, and we hope you think they’re as special as we do!
We’re giving away two of them this week, so we’ll have two winners, and they’ll be available to anyone anywhere in the world! They’re super soft American Apparel 50/50 tshirts available in small, medium, large, and xlarge. In case you can’t tell from the photo, they’re a rich navy blue with white ink.
OK, so let’s get started! Oh, wait: we need to mention the rules first:

OK, ready to play? Here we go…
QUESTION: In Scott Conary’s Field Report from Rwanda in the October + November 2013 issue he says that in 2002, Rwanda had just two washing stations for coffee. According to Scott’s article, how many are there today?
