Hello friends! Welcome to another midpoint in the week, a glorious Wednesday, the day that we love because it means it’s time to play another round of Humpday Giveaway where we ask a question, you give the answer, and one of you walks away with a great prize! You, me, and Charlie Sheen all call that winning!
Here in the States, August is known for its sweltering heat and blazing sun. It really makes a tall, cold drink one of the best things you can have in your hands, and one of the best ones we can think of is an iced coffee. And that brings us to this week’s prize!
A description from the Toddy website:
The Toddy Commercial system uses its patented cold-water extraction process to produce cold-brewed liquid coffee and tea extract that offers a full-bodied, aromatic flavor profile that translates into a bold, super-smooth taste. Brew 5 lbs of your favorite coffee and you should yield approximately 2 1/2 gallons of extract.
The Toddy Maker Cold Brew commercial model is a non-electrical brewer that produces a bold, smooth [low acid] extract that is superior to powders and hot-brewed liquids in overall mixability, quality and taste.
So do you want to win that sweet brewer? Of course you do! So now all you have to do is answer the following question. Remember leave your answer with your FIRST and LAST names in the comment section below. You can respond any time between when this post goes live (7:00am PDT on August 7) through 6:59PDT on August 8. Then we’ll put everyone’s names who got the answer correct in a
hat mug and pull out one lucky winner. Check back here at 10am PDT on August 8 to find out who won. (One other note: due to shipping restrictions, this week’s prize can only be mailed to US addresses.)
This week is the start of August, and that means the latest edition of Barista Magazine is in the mail. It’s our special World Barista Championship issue, and features this year’s World Brewers Cup champion, Erin McCarthy, and the WBC Champion Pete Licata on the cover.
So here’s the trivia question: Pete finished in the top three at the WBC in 2011 in Bogotá, and obviously in Melbourne in 2013. Who else finished in the top three in each of those years? (Please give the competitor’s name and nationality.) Think you know the answer? Go ahead and leave it below (with your first and last names, naturally). Don’t know who it might be? Better read the profile and interview with Pete in this issue then (and if you don’t have your hardcopy yet, you can always read Barista Magazine digital online for free!)
