Oh my gosh, you guys ”you totally flipped for this ROK Espresso Maker! We’re sending a big shout out to the nice folks at Importika for donating it as this week’s prize for Barista Magazine’s Humpday Giveaway! THANKS, IMPORTIKA!
So there can be only one winner, of course, but for all of you who fell in love with this superfly, sophisticated, travel-friendly, and totally gorgeous non-electric espresso maker, you can still get one! Pony up at www.importika.com ”seriously, the $199 retail price seems like a more-than-fair price for such a cool piece of equipment.
Onward: who will be the big winner!!? More than 230 (Wowza!!!) of you played Humpday Giveaway this week for a chance to win the ROK. We told you guys to list your country along with your answer to the trivia question, and that was because this prize will only ship to a U.S. address. But we have your back, yo ”international readers were invited to play, too, for the chance to win a one-year subscription to Barista Magazine. That’s a $60 value!
So we have not one but TWO drawings this morning.
The trivia question was:
QUESTION: In the year-in-review interview with 2012 World Barista Champion Raul Rodas in the August + September 2013 issue, Raul says he’s been working with an organization in Guatemala that helps children with cancer and their families. What is the name of that organization?
(It’s a totally great organization, folks ”we encourage you to check it out HERE.)
For the drawing for the ROK, we tallied the names of all the U.S. residents who got the answer right, typed up each name, cut each one out, put them all in a bag…
Sarah closed her eyes and reached a hand into the bag to determine the winner…
Congratulations, DANIELLE FUNK! You are now the lucky new owner of a ROK Espresso Maker! We’ll be in touch soon for your mailing information, and the nice folks at Importika will ship it right out to you!
But we still had one more drawing to do! We tallied all the names of international participants who got the answer right, and typed up and cut out each name, and put them all in a mug…
This time it was Ken who closed his eyes and drew one name from the mug…
Congratulations, DIANA JIMENEZ! You just won a one-year subscription to Barista Magazine! We’ll email you shortly for your address so we can get that subscription started!
Thanks to all of you who played Humpday Giveaway this week, and once again, a big huge thank you to IMPORTIKA!
