Holla for Humpday Giveaway!


Happy humpday, everyone! OMG we personally cannot believe that we’re back home after the banana-pants craziness of Boston—we had so much fun seeing all of our friends! But as wonderful as the show was, it makes being back home in beautiful Portland, Oregon, all the more sweet.

Being back in real-world time means its time for BMag’s Humpday Giveaway! Holy cow, we’re so glad you guys love this contest as much as we do. I feel amazingly lucky that people approach me and Ken all the time now offering prizes that we can give away for you, awesome readers!

This week we have something amazing to offer up! Hold onto your lids, and check it: Stumptown Coffee is our gracious sponsor for this week’s BMag’s Humpday Giveaway—they’re offering not one but two bags of their most special coffees to this week’s winner: Colombia El Jordan (valued at $17.99 per bag) and also Montes de Oro from Costa Rica ($16.50 per bag). HOLLA!

This is one heck of a treat. We have to give some mighty big thanks to our friends at Stumptown for offering this amazing prize. You know how this goes: we ask a trivia question, you put your answer into the blog comment section here, and everyone who has the right answer gets entered into a drawing. Tomorrow morning, we pull one lucky name from the hat, and that person becomes the winner of these two bags of frackin’ amazing coffee from our buddies at Stumptown Coffee Roasters. Then I will personally hop in my car and drive to Stumptown to pick up these bags of coffee, and rush them to the post office so they can be on their way, tout de suite, to the winner’s mailbox.

Usually our Humpday Giveaway trivia question is inspired by the current issue of Barista Magazine. But since we’re still flying high from Pete Licata’s win at the United States Barista Championship, we thought we’d mix it up and ask a question having to do with the USBC. So heeeeeeeere we go…..

QUESTION: Only a few people have won the USBC more than once. What are their names, and what years did they win?

Think you know the answer? Then write your answer in the comment section in this blog—noting your first and last name, please— and you’ll be entered to win! Stay tuned tomorrow morning when we’ll draw the name of one lucky winner of these two outstanding bags of coffee.

As always, thanks so much for playing. We love BMag’s Humpday Giveaway, and we love you!
