Hey guys! Happy Wednesday! Hope you’re having a great one so far. It’s our mission here at Barista Magazine to keep your coffee life lively every day of the year, and Wednesdays are particularly special: that’s when Humpday Giveaway rolls around! We love hosting a weekly trivia contest right here on our blog so that one of you awesome readers can win a totally cool coffee prize!
So what’s up for grabs this week? Well, in honor of Ms Asli Yaman of Turkey winning the Turkish Brewers Cup last weekend using the GINO glass dripper from notNeutral, we’re offering up this super awesome manual brew tool!
From the notNeutral website:
The GINO dripper is made from borosilicate, a laboratory-grade, light weight glass that is heat and scratch resistant.
The double-walled construction insulates while highlighting the coffee extraction. The handle-less profile is elegantly tapered to comfortably fit any grip. The angle of the interior cone and size of the 3 holes at the bottom are engineered to ensure the optimal distance for water to travel through the coffee bed, ensuring an even extraction for a pure and flavorful brewed coffee.¢ Hand blown borosilicate double walled glass ¢ Food grade, germ resistant surface, 100% recyclable, silicone gasket ¢ Dishwasher safe ¢ 3″H x 4.5″W ¢ Gift boxed ¢ Works with Kalita filter #185 and Tiamo filter #02
Asli is hardly the only one to win a Brewers Cup competition using the GINO this year. This gorgeous dripper ”which sells for $24 ”is one of the most popular brewing devices of the year for Brewers Cup competitors.
And of course, it’s not just competitors who love using this brew tool: it works great in cafes as well as at home. So guys: let’s get playing Humpday Giveaway so one of you can win this bad boy! And a note: We’ll have two winners this week: someone with a U.S. address will win the GINO glass dripper, and someone from outside of the U.S. will win a one-year subscription to Barista Magazine!
