My good friend Brittany helps run a wonderful little coffee shop based out of Ketchikan, Alaska, and has offered up a pound of wonderful fair trade, organic coffee to one lucky reader!
This is Barista Brittany from The Green Coffee Bean Company. We are proud to be hosting this month's giveaway! We're a little coffee shop in Ketchikan, Alaska, where we roast all of our coffee in small batches with lots of love!
We are giving away one pound of our super delicious coffee of the month (which is also Fair Trade and organic), Ethiopia Harrar Longberry. Here's a little bit of info about the Harrar:
"The district of Harrar is located in the Northeast area of Ethiopia at about 5,000 to 6,000 feet above sea level . Longberry is a large, long-pointed bean. They are grown by hand on small peasant plots and processed carefully by the traditional, dry method which brings out characteristic wild, blueberry undertones, flowery aroma, medium acidity and heavy wine-like body. A very special treat with any blueberry dessert!" It's delicious and one of our best sellers, so we're happy to be sharing it with you!
To enter the giveaway, go to our Big Cartel shop and find a coffee that you'd like to try, then come back here and leave a comment with the type that caught your eye. Extra entries can be made via Twitter. Tweet about the giveaway- and be sure to include a type of coffee, and @renaimarie to make sure that your tweet is seen! One blog entry and one Twitter entry per person, and please remember to leave contact information in your comment so that we can reach you if you win! The giveaway is open until the end of the day August 24th. One winner will be chosen randomly and announced here on August 25th.
As our gift to all readers: for the rest of the month you can enjoy a 20% discount on all of the coffee in our shop by using the code "GHOST" at checkout.
