Let’s Play Barista Magazine’s Humpday Giveaway! #35 (October 23, 2013 Edition)

Wednesday round these parts means it’s time to play another round of Humpday Giveaway our weekly trivia contest for awesome prizes!

For this week’s prize, I’m digging into my own personal stash, and giving away an awesome Bonavita Gooseneck Electric Kettle! And let me tell you, this is a seriously terrific kettle!

Win this today!
This kettle needs a home! Can you help?

Check out some of these features:

  • Brushed Stainless Steel Kettle with comfort grip handle
  • Gooseneck spout designed for pour over control and water flow
  • 360 swivel, lifts off base for easy use and filling, cordless kettle
  • 1000W heater for quick water boiling
  • Fast water heating and auto-shutoff
  • Ideal for tea and manual pour over coffee brewing
  • Holds 1.0L of water (33.8 ounces)
  • UL Certified, USA only

I was lucky enough to win this very kettle in a raffle at the TNT in Seattle before Coffee Fest hosted by the great folks at Neptune Coffee. And  I can testify that it is an excellent kettle because we already have one and use it all the time! But a kettle like this must not go to waste, gather dust in the basement or sit on a shelf somewhere untouched. No, it needs a home where it will be put to use, where you can help it fulfill its one true destiny: to brew amazing coffee!

(And hey international readers, we feel your pain, but this kettle won’t work in most countries outside of the US – Canada, you’re in the clear. – so if you live in one of those other countries [outside of North America], we’ll put you in a drawing to win a free year’s subscription to Barista Magazine! And hey, that’s pretty good too!)

So now that we have the prize lined up we need a question for you to answer. Once again we turn to the latest issue (October + November 2013) and see what we can dig up.

Here we go:

QUESTION: As noted in the article œCoffee+ adding signature beverages to the café menu,  what was the name of Pete Licata’s 2013 WBC-winning signature drink?

Think you know the answer? Great!  Leave it in the comments section below  with your  FIRST  and  LAST  names and your  COUNTRY  of residence.

If you don’t have a hard copy of the current issue, remember you can always check it out online for free with  Barista Magazine digital!

Everyone who submits the correct answer (plus the additional info “ i.e. name and country) will be entered in the drawing!

This week’s Humpday Giveaway will be open from 7:00AM PDT Wednesday Oct. 23, 2013 through 6:59AM PDT Thursday, Oct. 24. 2013. Anyone who submits the correct response and required info (see how important that is?) will be entered to win.

Good luck to everyone!
