Let’s Play Barista Magazine’s Humpday Giveaway! #26 (August 21, 2013 Edition)

Even though I’m seeing kids headed back to school, and the leaves on the trees are starting to turn, it’s still summer, dammit! And here’s how I prove it: this week’s prize for Humpday Giveaway is an amazing camp coffee kit from Stumptown Coffee and Poler Stuff! Thanks, guys!

While you would look so totally cool using this kit at a campsite (and since it’s still summer, you have loads of time for camping!), it would also be totally fly in a hotel room, or your mom’s kitchen, or any place you might be wanting a really good grinder, a dope brewing vessel, some damn fine coffee, and even some stylin’ cups to drink your brew from.

This Poler & Stumptown Camp Coffee set retails for $125 ”but no complaints about the price allowed! Look at all the stuff tucked inside that super sweet canvas bag:

  • 2 mugs
  • AeroPress Kit
  • Porlex JP-30
  • 12 Oz of Holler Mountain
It's so cool, guys: check this thing out.
