Let’s Play Barista Magazine’s Humpday Giveaway! #43 (December 18, 2013 Edition)

Happy Humpday, everyone! We’re fast approaching the end of the year ”can you believe it? In fact, besides December 25 ”which is Christmas ”this is the last Humpday of 2013! And the first one is January 1 ”New Year’s Day for 2014. Whaaaa???

SO WE WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW: We here at Barista Magazine don’t take many holidays, but we’d really like to stay out of the office on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. Don’t worry — we’ll still have new, original content on those days, like we do EVERY day. But we’re going to take a Humpday Hiatus until January 8, when we will resume our weekly trivia contest for great prizes. Thanks for understanding that we need a tiny break to be with our family.

We have a pretty awesome prize this week, too: it’s this amazing limited edition coffee box set that Blue Bottle Coffee has just released! Check it out:

The tube contains three small containers of these special coffees. Due to the limited amount and the coffee's quality, this tube retails for $40. But one of you will win it this week for Humpday Giveaway!

We think this tube of coffees would make a great gift, too, and so if you don’t win Humpday Giveaway, and you want to buy your own tube, you can do it HERE. Also, there’s another tube available, this one with naturals and priced at $95.

It being the holiday season and all, we thought we would share this goodness with you and make the tube of three exceptional coffees this week’s Humpday Giveaway prize! We just ask that whoever wins  really enjoys it ”somehow I don’t think that’ll be a problem.

    Thanks to Barista Mag and all the sponsors for doing Humpday Giveaway. It’s been fun to play. Looking forward to next year.

  2. IBG: Iranian Barista Guild (Page 28 & 29)
    And I quote, “The coffee community in Tehran, Iran, has been persistently grinding away at local government and heads of industry for the last three years to get permission to host a national barista competition, and this October, due to the energy, passion, and drive of Mohammad Khani and the Iranian Barista Guid (IBG), the IBG Barista Championship was finally hosted at the coffee and Cocoa International Festival”
