Welcome to Wednesday, friends! Time’s moving by awfully quickly, especially for those of you stuck in a snow tundra in the very cold parts of the world. You know, like Russia and Brooklyn. Those folks down in Australia are having a summer right now—can you believe it? Maybe all that sunshine and fresh air is what made the wonderful folks at Pullman Coffee Tamper decide to be amazingly generous and contribute this week’s Humpday Giveaway prize!
Pullman Coffee Tampers—a division of Pullman Espresso Accessories—is an established and respected small wares company and roaster service outfit based in Adelaide, South Australia. Pullman is responsible for shipping all goods ordered through Things Coffee, and they’re known for their excellent work servicing Hottop Roasters. They’re currently working on a retail space, which is super exciting! The plan is to have it opened really soon—as in, April!
We were just thrilled when they told us they wanted to put up a gorgeous Pullman Tamper for this week’s Humpday Giveaway prize. This thing is valued at AU$200!
The winner will have his or her choice of the Barista tamper (see HERE for description) with either an Australian Red Jarrah Hardwood handle, or an Australian Oak Hardwood handle.
But that’s not all! The flat stainless steel base will be matched to a VST basket! The winner can choose the size of the basket: 15g, 18g, 20g, or 22g.
So are you psyched? Us, too! Let’s get to the game!
