Let’s Play Barista Magazine’s Humpday Giveaway! #69 (July 9, 2014 Edition)


Welcome to Humpday Giveaway – Barista Magazine’s weekly trivia contest for fun and prizes!

It’s another Wednesday, so it’s another chance to play and win Humpday Giveaway! This week we have some awesome prizes from La Marzocco!

First up it’s a fantastic, super-cool, totally envy-worthy custom messenger bag! (Note to editor: Do we have another one of these, please?)

Humpday Giveaway prize: This custom La Marzocco bag!

Win this custom La Marzocco messenger bag today!

The messenger bag is from one of La Marzocco’s epic Out of the Box events where the company hosts innovative, small scale educational and professional development classes along with loads of socializing and fun in various cities around the globe.

The messenger bag is a creation of Rickshaw Bagworks in San Francisco it’s a Medium Zero Messenger. What’s the zero mean? From the Rickshaw Bagworks website:

The Zero platform is specially designed to optimize fabric cutting and reduce manufacturing waste. A holistic approach uniting minimalist design, localized sourcing and minimal waste manufacturing, the Zero is made using domestically sourced materials thereby shortening the raw material supply chain and reducing its ecological footprint. To facilitate recycling, this bag is made entirely of nylon. The result is elegantly simple and functional.

Seems like a great prize, right? Well sure! It is! But that’s not all! We’ve also got some custom La Marzocco sunglasses direct from the Italian beach party the company hosted on the sands of Rimini!

This week's Humpday Giveaway winner gets these sunglasses too!
