Let’s Play Barista Magazine’s Humpday Giveaway! #34 (October 16, 2013 Edition)


Congratulations! You did it again! You’ve made it to another Wednesday, and of course that means you’ve got another chance to play Humpday Giveaway and win another great prize! (Yes, Cabel, even you have a chance to win if you play!)

So up for grabs this week is another set of steaming pitchers from Visions Espresso. These sweet powder-coated pitchers are heavier than normal which, according to latte art experts, can help with a steady flow on your pour. And they come in two sizes, 12-oz and 20-oz. This week’s winner will get one of each size! But probably the best thing about these pitchers is the fact that the come in Red, Black and White, the official colors of the Portland Trailblazers! With the start of the NBA season just a couple of weeks away could that be a coincidence? Seriously, how could you even ask? Of course it’s no accident! The black set has already been claimed, so we’re down to the red and white sets, but no worries, those are the road uniform colors of the Blazers, so you’re still good!

These pitchers have a nice heft to them because of the weight of the powder coating. Cole says this helps him with his pours.
