Let’s Play Barista Magazine’s Humpday Giveaway! #52 (March 5, 2014 Edition)

Alright, alright, alright, (we say in honor of Matthew McConaughey, excuse us that’s Oscar winner Matthew  McConaughey) it’s Wednesday! And of course, hardly even needs saying at this point, but Wednesday’s are when we play Humpday Giveaway our weekly trivia contest for fun and awesome prizes!

This week’s prize comes to us from the great folks at Prima Coffee Equipment.  It’s a great way to brew a tasty cup of your favorite coffee, and really a must have for  any home (or travel) brew station. It’s a Clever Coffee Dripper, and it comes with a 100-pack of Melitta filters, so you can start brewing as soon as you open your kit.

Here’s what Prima has to say about the Clever:

Want to brew a great cup? We got a tool for that right here!
Want to brew a great cup? We got a tool for that right here!

Aptly named the Clever, Abid’s full-immersion dripper produces a clean, tasty cup that couldn’t be any easier to use. To brew a cup, simply place a filter in the brewer, add ground coffee, pour water over the coffee, steep for 2-4 minutes, and then place the dripper on top of your cup. The cup’s rim engages the release valve and the coffee begins to drain through the bottom of the dripper into your cup. Depending on the size selected, this brewer takes either a standard #2 or #4 filter, either of which can be selected after clicking “Add to Cart.” If more filters are needed, see our listing for  Melitta coffee filters  .

  • Durable BPA-free plastic body

  • Includes dripper, lid, and coaster

  • Works best with #2 or #4 size filters

  • Available in 18-ounce (yields ~16 ounces) or 10-ounce (yields ~10 ounces) size

  • Designed for manual, immersion-style coffee brewing

  • Brews one cup at a time

Sounds awesome, right? Well it is, and it can be yours with this week’s Humpday Giveaway.
