Let’s Play Barista Magazine’s Humpday Giveaway! #29 (September 11, 2013 Edition)


Finally! We thought we’d never get to Humpday this week—that’s because summer’s over and a busy fall is starting, which means either Ken or Sarah is out of the office most all of the time at a conference, competition, or event. So it’s extra busy around our office! We assume you guys out there in coffee land are pretty busy, too—which is why celebrating Humpday is extra important!

We lovelovelove this grinder—we use an Encore ourselves in Barista Magazine's office!

And celebrate, we are, with a big prize this week: Our friends at Baratza are hooking the winner of this week’s Humpday Giveaway up with a beautiful Encore grinder! Folks, this grinder is so awesome. Check out the sweet little vid Prima made about how it works:

This Über-precise and hard working grinder retails for $129—but one of you out there is going to win one! This week’s competition is only open to folks with a U.S. mailing address. BUT for all of you outside the U.S., please play anyway, because one of you is going to win a one-year subscription to Barista Magazine, which we’ll send to you anywhere in the world!

So let’s review:

• We’ll have a U.S. winner who gets a brand new Baratza Encore grinder

• We’ll have an international winner who gets a one-year subscription to Barista Magazine


Let’s real quick review the rules, guys, and then we’ll get to the trivia question:
