Urnex’s #BigEastern Competition: Win a flight to LA to attend #USCoffeeChamps
Urnex has been a supporter of baristas for as long as we can remember, sponsoring barista competitions, providing plenty of the highest quality Urnex products for competitors to use, and coming up with pretty creative ways to show how much they respect the barista profession.
Take the contest that launched today, Thursday, November 20, for example: Urnex has designed a super fun contest that will go on through the this weekend’s Big Eastern coffee competitions. The prize? A roundtrip plane ticket from the winner’s hometown to the United States Coffee Championships taking place in Long Beach, Calif., February 19-22.
All you have to do is ”well, what you’re probably already doing: take cool photos with your phone, hashtag #BigEastern. “Contestants will enter by submitting up to 5 photos per twitter account of their best picture using the Scoopzâ„¢ brush and/or other Urnex Brand products to @urnexbrands. The contest is open beginning Thursday Nov. 20, 2014 at 8:00am EST and ending Sunday Nov. 23, 2014 at 11:59pm EST,” read the official rules.
Pretty cool, huh? The competition takes place during the Big Eastern, but note: photos don’t have to be shot AT the Big Eastern. Anyone can enter! See rules for eligibility.
“We learn so much from each barista that works with Urnex products and shares the impact they know a clean machine can deliver to the taste in the cup.” Joshua Dick CEO/President of Urnex Brands, Inc. and great grandson of the founder, told Barista Magazine. “We love supporting the dedicated and enthusiastic competitors at what is such a fun and exciting event. The chance to help someone attend the United States Coffee Championships in February is our way to contribute to the community and say thanks for all you do.”
