Let’s Play Humpday Giveaway! #19 (June 26 Edition)

Hurray, it’s Wednesday! So not only are we halfway through another week (and officially into summer – at least in the Northern Hemisphere), but it’s also time to play another round of Humpday Giveaway!

Some places it's always seemingly summer like Santa Cruz, California.

This week we have a tremendous prize pack from a little coffee roaster down California way that you may have heard of called VERVE!

Verve Coffee Roasters donated this week's awesome prize pack!

Verve was the host of the Southwest Regional Barista Competition, and I was fortunate enough to get a chance to visit both the company’s cafes and its roastery. The cafes were slamming and super stylish. And the roastery was beautiful, just like Santa Cruz. Both Verve and its hometown are well worth a visit. Check out this machine!

A wicked, cool Spirit at the Downtown location of Verve.

The folks who work at Verve really reflect the laid-back surf-town vibe of Santa Cruz. They’re friendly, knowledgable, but not overbearing, and the place, like the town they live in, is super-cool. Oh, and guess what? They also take great pride in serving exceptional coffees. So when they said they wanted to donate a prize for this week’s contest, we were excited. When they said they wanted to donate a prize pack, we did backflips, metaphorically anyway, and honestly, this is so rad I may have to enter Humpday Giveaway too. (Unfortunately, for me, some rules say that’s not allowed, but hey good news for all of you!) So what are we giving away this week? Well this:

This week's prizes tastefully modeled for you!

No, it’s not just the sweet T-shirt. And no it’s not just the Golden State camping mugs. It’s both of those, plus two amazing coffees! You get a bag of Verve’s signature espresso Streetlevel, and a bag of single-origin Rafael Lozano from Colombia! Now that’s a prize pack! (See why we wanted to do backflips?)

Ok, so now we’ve got to get to the business end of Humpday Giveway. That means we’ve got to ask you a question, and you’ve got to answer it, so you can get in the drawing and win!

This week’s question: Dalla Corte is the official espresso machine of two world championships being held at the SCAE event in Nice, France this week. Which two events are they? (Need some help to figure it out? You might find the answer in the June + July 2013 issue of Barista Magazine. Just saying…)

Know the answer? Then this is what you need to do: Leave it as a comment below. Also we need your FIRST and LAST names, so we can identify you.

Good luck to everyone! (And yes, I’m a bit jealous to whomever of you wins.)

 

And here’s the small print: The contest is open for 24 hours from the time this post goes up (7:00 AM PDT on June 26 through 6:59 AM PDT on June 27). All correct entries will be put into a hat  mug, and one winner will be drawn. The winner’s name will be posted Thursday, June 27 at 10:00 AM PDT. Please note: Due to shipping restrictions, this week’s prize can only be sent to addresses in the U.S. and Canada.
