Let’s Play Barista Magazine’s Humpday Giveaway #75! (September 10, 2014 Edition)

Welcome to  Barista Magazine’s Humpday Giveaway #75!

Barista Magazine’s recurring trivia contest for fun and prizes!

Hello and welcome once again to another installment of the midweek classic (that’s not overstating it, right?) It’s surely not this week because for  Barista Magazine’s Humpday Giveaway #74 we have an awesome prize for one lucky winner!

Humpday Giveaway is where we ask you a question, you answer it in the comments section below, and then we select a winner at random tomorrow and that’s it! So let’s get started! First here’s what you’re playing for: A tall version Gorilla Tamper of your very own!

Barista Magazine's Humpday Giveaway #75
Get Your Own Gorilla!

Gorilla Tampers are handmade by John Gordon, the three-time United Kingdom Barista Champion. You can read about him and his Gorilla Tamper story right here where we featured a short Q&A with him on the blog yesterday.

Barista Magazine's Humpday Giveaway #75
This week’s prize is a one-of-a-kind Gorilla Tamper!

This week’s prize is a completely unique tamper: a one-off created by John, so no one else in the world will have one quite like yours! We’d say it retails for £95.00, but the truth is this is a stand-alone tamper that’s not for sale. It’s just for our lucky winner!

This Gorilla Tamper features an  aluminum handle that is hard anodised red and then polished for a bright finish. The base is a 58mm flat Brass Nickel Alloy that is also polished for a bright finish.

Doesn’t it look dreamy? It’s just beautiful! So let’s find out what you need to know to win this baby!
