Let’s Play Barista Magazine’s Humpday Giveaway! #48 (February 5, 2014 Edition)


Happy, happy Humpday, friends! Thanks for coming to visit to see what fun prize we’re putting up for grabs for the Humpday Giveaway contest this week! We’ve been getting so much love from you all for our many daily news posts to the BMag blog, as well as the brand new issue of Barista Magazine (which you can read online in its entirety for free by CLICKING HERE), that we thought this would be a good week to give y’all some love right back. So how about one of our brand new Barista Magazine tshirts? How about three of them?

Here it is—the brand new Barista Magazine tshirt! We'll give away three of them as prizes for this week's Humpday Giveaway! Keep reading to play!

We printed this super-duper soft v-neck tshirt back in November of 2011, and you guys LOVED them. You showed your Barista Magazine love all over the world in these shirts. Check Gianni out, for example!

Think you can rock the new BMag tshirt as hard as Gianni rocks the old one? Let's see!

So we did something we’ve never done before: we got them reprinted! But we wanted to change them up a little bit, so we replaced the bright yellow ink with red! Ken calls these Rip City Red shirts. Yes, it’s a Portland Trailblazers reference. No, you don’t have to be a Portland Trailblazers fan to win one. But if you happen to be a Portland Trailblazers fan, and you win one, Ken will buy you a beer next time he sees you.

Onward: we just got these new shirts in this week. We don’t sell them; we want to gift them! You guys are so awesome that giving away these shirts is our way of showing our appreciation for your enthusiasm and dedication to our wonderful industry. This week, we’re giving away THREE shirts, and we’ll mail them to anyone, anywhere in the world!

More about the shirts: The brand is Next Level Tri-Blend, and we got them in Vintage Black (which is really a super dark gray). We have them in Small, Medium, Large, and X-Large. The three people who win tomorrow will be contacted for their tshirt size and address, and then we’ll ship them right out!
