Coffee Schwag and Giveaway

| 5 Comments

Thanks to a pointer by Peggy over at ·:[ Blabber Heads ]:·, I looked into BloggersFuel.com, a coffee bean site run by Boca Java. They have a publicity deal whereby I filled out an application for them to send me a "Bloggers Review Pack" of beans, along with a couple of other promotional things, in exchange for mentioning them on my blog and reviewing their beans. I had kind of forgotten about it when the box from them showed up on my doorstep yesterday.

And plenty of cool stuff it is! Six 8oz bags of their coffees, a nice hat and a big mug. Unfortunately, as you can see from the picture, the handle of the mug got pretty well shattered during shipping :-( I hate to look a gift horse in the mouth, but it's such a nice looking mug I'm going to ask for a replacement. This is some cool viral marketing, if you ask me.

The six coffee bags, and the blurbs on the front, are:

  1. Blogger's Pajama Passion "Life's short, blog hard." : Blog the night away with this exotic flavored coffee featuring vanilla, Kahlua and caramel.
  2. Blogger's Beach Blast "Go ahead, make my blog." : This luscious flavored coffee will make your blog! Featuring a tantalizing combination of chocolate kiss and caramel.
  3. Blogger's Boot Up Blend "Blogging rocks." : Log on to an amazing medium blend of African, Central and South American coffees. Rich taste and smooth finish for the perfect breakfast blend.
  4. Blogs of Bravery "The real story in real time." : Front line fuel from a blend of South American dark and medium roasts to create a well balanced, smooth taste.
  5. Late Night Log In "Blogger Fuel." : Blog on with a very bold, dark roasted blend of South American and island coffees. This coffee is rich with flavor and has a smooth finish.
  6. New Media Mavericks "Unfiltered truth." : Lead the information reformation with this medium roast from the prized Tarrazu region of Costa Rica. With excellent body and robust richness.

It's a little quirky, but I'm willing to try out some new coffee beans. Good timing, too, as our last five pound bag of Armeno Ethiopian Yirgacheffe beans just ran out. Look for some reviews over the coming week.

Oh, and as a special bonus to both regular readers of this blog, I'll send one of the flavored bags to the first respondents who ask for one. We don't do flavored coffee here, and the thought of actually drinking a "caramel" flavored coffee gives me the willies. So shoot me off an email at jdarnold@buddydog.org, tell me your preference ("Pajama Passion" or "Beach Blast", or either one if you don't care) and your address, and I'll get you out a bag on Monday. Good luck!

You got yours already!? I am still waiting on mine. I also won that "guess the number of coffee beans" thing in the prez's blog, and am waiting on that.

I figured that since they just moved into a new building, that was holding things up, but I guess not... I'm gonna go over and find out what's up.

Yeah, there was a letter in mine apologizing for the delay, explaining it by way of the move to the new building. They must be doing the old last in, first out stack!

WOW. *laughs*

Well, i wrote to them - I think that it might be because I gave them my PO Box for an addy. When you order coffee normally, there is an extra charge to deliver to a PO box, and I hadn't seen that yet when I signed up.

I'm anxious to try it! My hubby even bought me a new french press, and insulated mug for my birthday. It's nearing the triple digits here now though - Pretty soon i'm gonna have to make iced coffee with it. lol

You get rid of those flavored coffees yet?

If not, i'll take them - I can PayPal ya the shipping if you like.

The Choco Caramel is really really good! Not watered down or week tasting like the flavored coffees usually are.

Yup, still available. And just in time too, as it was slated for the garbage can today! Drop me an email with your snail mail address and I'll get them out to you.
