Let’s Play Barista Magazine’s Humpday Giveaway! #65 (June 4, 2014 Edition)


The World Barista Championship is just around the corner (and surely if you’ve been on the blog at all here this week, you’ve noticed a huge number of posts about it as we start our coverage of next week’s event.) We’ve begun with our Q&As with every national champion who will be competing in Rimini, Italy, and as the week progresses we’ll work through the whole list of champions alphabetically by country.

But that doesn’t stop it being Wednesday, and when Wednesday rolls around it means it’s time for a little thing we like to call Humpday Giveaway, our weekly trivia contest for awesome prizes (and fun!). Ok, though, what does stop Humpday Giveaway is our office being pretty much closed as we head to Italy for the aforementioned WBC, that means next week, no Humpday. Don’t be sad though, that just means this week’s prize has to be extra-special, and believe me, it is!

To celebrate the 2014 World Barista Championship, we have a prize from the Tamper Sponsor himself, the tamperman Reg Barber!

What's in the box?

What’s in the box?

Just this beauty!

Just this beauty!

Up for grabs for this week’s winner is this awesome 58mm tamper with a handle made of designer acrylic!

To celebrate the WBC we’re not only giving away this tamper, but we will ship it anywhere. So this contest is open to everyone! Reg commissioned an artist on Vancouver Island to make a limited run of these, so playing Humpday Giveaway may be your only chance to get one!

This could be yours!

Yes, it’s true. This could be yours!

Before we can play, however, we need to have our quick review of the rules (and then of course, we’ll need a question), so keep reading..
