Let’s Play Humpday Giveaway! #22 (July 23 Edition)


We’ve made it through another week and to another Wednesday which can only mean one thing, here on the BMag blog anyway, it’s time to play Humpday Giveaway!

It’s summertime in the Northern Hemisphere and it’s a time when many folks turn to the outdoors and travel, camping, and just hitting the open road. Well, what good is that if you can’t make awesome coffee long the way? Never fear! Humpday Giveaway and our great friends at Prima Coffee  Equipment are here to help!

One of the most important pieces of coffee equipment you can travel with is a grinder, and one of our favorite is the Hario Coffee Grinder Mini Mill Slim. Not only is it small and lightweight with conical ceramic burrs, it’s a snap to adjust!

The Hario Mini Mill Slim grinder is awesome for travel or around the house.

So now that you know the prize, we need a question for you to answer.

This week’s query comes from the pages of the June + July 2013 issue of Barista Magazine, well, that’s one of the places you can find the answer anyway. Specifically, you can find it in the latest installment of the Colombian Coffee Hub’s column.

Without further ado, here you go: At higher altitudes in coffee-growing regions, temperatures drop significantly at night. What effect does this have on the coffee cherry?

Think you know the answer? Then all you have to do is leave it in the comments section, along with your FIRST and LAST names. You have from when this post goes live (7:00AM PDT on July 24) until 6:59AM PDT on July 25 to respond. All correct responses (who have also given first and last names!) will be put in the drawing for a chance to win. The winner will be announced in a post on Thursday. (Please note, due to shipping restrictions, this week’s prize can only be mailed to U.S. addresses.)

Good luck to everyone and thanks for playing this week’s round of Humpday Giveaway!
