Let’s Play Barista Magazine’s Humpday Giveaway! #44 (January 8, 2014 Edition)

Welcome back everybody! And welcome to the first Humpday Giveaway of 2014! Our Humpday Hiatus is over (along with Christmas and New Year’s Day), and we’re back to our weekly trivia contest for fun and prizes!

We have a great prize this week from the awesome folks at Boston Stoker! It’s a Boston Stoker sample kit. The Ohio-based specialty coffee company put this kit together (and shared one with us!) to highlight some of the great coffees they have available.

The Boston Stoker Sample Kit features 5 different coffees to try.

Here’s how the team at Boston Stoker describes the kit and the coffees:

œI’ve spent eight years traveling the globe, cultivating relationships with farmers and cooperative so Boston Stoker can provide the best direct trade, single origin bean to bring back and hand roast in Dayton, Ohio. For us, it’s all about finding the best beans and supporting the farmers who grow it. Because better care for the farmers means better conditions for the crops means better coffee for you. œ

 The coffee included in the pack is:

·                  16oz of Custom House –  This is a  full-bodied blend in the European tradition. A staple Boston Stoker offering since 1973.

·                  8oz of La Minita “ We chose to feature this coffee due to our long standing relationship with La Minita and our continued commitment to a better cup of quality.

·                  8oz of La Meseta “ This is a coffee Henry developed and sourced directly over the years and he has finally gotten it into the states. It is a part of our current path of sourcing directly with the farmers to get more money to the source and a better cup of coffee to our customers.

·                  8 oz each of Ethiopia Konga Yirgacheffe /Ethiopia Kochere Yirgacheffe- We included these two African coffees to show how diverse coffees from the same region and processing station but processed differently can taste to help educate the public on the wonderful diversities of coffee. We understand not everyone has the pallet of a seasoned barista but even the untrained pallet can pick out the differences of these two.

With cool packaging and tasty coffees, the Boston Stoker sample kit will be delivered to the winner's door!

    It is interesting to watch the development of the Palm Oil Industry unfold in Indonesia. Throughout the world. eyes are locked onto every detail regarding this country’s main commodity. And not just the industry, but internal governmental policies, environment concerns, agricultural strategies….. The world is close behind implementing these same tactics in their own countries to compete in the global pal oil trade.

    The devastation palm oil truly has in the long term was grossly understated in this article. However, Indonesia is the country that everyone is mimicking. If they could be convinced of diversifying crops, like a stronger coffee market, as this article suggests, it would indirectly influence many other countries to diversify as well. Indonesia is like a mini agriculture experiment. And with new (and very serious) palm oil competition, the fate of Indonesia will hinge on their ability to rebound in new, creative ways. It is encouraging to see this Field Report strongly suggest a more sustainable option. Increasing productivity and quality in other sectors (like cocoa, tea, and shrimp) would have a huge impact on the economy, farmer’s livelihoods, and reduce environmental impact.

    Thanks!!
