Anniversary giveaway #6: Locally-roasted Lewis & Clark whole bean coffee.

***** Winner update:  Elizabeth Toll, lucky #11 and Undernehr, lucky #12 both won a bag of Lewis & Clark coffee!  Congratulations ****

Hellooo Wednesday.

Welcome to Day 6 of this lovely, lovely, week of thank you giveaways.  You still have time to participate in Day 2, 3, 4, and 5.  It feels great that this blog has turned 3 years old.

Today’s giveaway comes courtesy of Lewis & Clark Provisions Co. and their line of whole bean coffee inspired by the great outdoors. This deeeeeeply rich coffee is bought in bulk directly from farms in Guatemala, instead of going through a coffee broker.  This way they ensure the farmer is getting his fair share and they have first hand knowledge about the quality and freshness of the coffee beans.  Roasted in Fayetteville by a horticulturalist at the UofA, it is not uncommon for these beans to go from farm to shelf in less than two weeks.  2 weeks!!  Currently there are four coffee bend offerings:  Yellowstone Base Camp Blend (light roast), Continental Divide (medium roast), Missoula (medium roast), and Gunnison (dark roast). Lewis & Clark coffee is available at all three Lewis & Clark locations, Bentonvile Harps, Fayetteville Harps, Harber Meadow Harps, and the Pinnacle White Oak Station.

Prize:

Two (2) lucky someone’s will be receiving a bag of whichever blend they desire, light, medium, or dark.  You call it!

Contest ends next Monday, September 17th at midnight (CDT).  I will pick a winner via randomizer.

Eligibility:

Leave me a comment with your name, email, blog, facebook, or twitter name so I contact you if you are the winner (need help on how to leave a comment?). 

Comment question: 

Q: How important is coffee to your daily life or special occasions?  What is your favorite way to enjoy a great cup of coffee?

  1. I don't want to imagine a world that doesn't include my morning cup of coffee. Also, I love writing in the evening with a cup.

    1. Coffee is truly an early morning treat!

  3. Coffee is a pleasure drink for me rather than something I *NEED* to wake up or start my day. That said, I still drink it pretty frequently!

    1. What is it that Ryan Reynolds said about his coffee in the movie, The Proposal? Ah yes, "it's like Christmas in a cup!"

  4. I cannot fully start my day without my coffee! My morning ritual starts with putting the pot on to boil, assembling the french press and grinding some dark roast beans! I love to sit in the sun room and enjoy my first cup if I have time :-)

    1. A french press = nice. Actually, I have some L&C coffee and that is exactly how I enjoy it, on a french press. My everyday coffee goes in the percolator.

      Your ritual sounds lovely!!!

  5. Coffee isn't my thing but my husband loves a good pot of coffee to start his day, and his day starts very early. He bought 3 different coffee makers this year until he found just the right one.

    1. Lucky for you, he found it... or did he... perhaps L&C coffee is really the right one???

  6. I am a SERIOUS coffee lover. I used to stand in a line around the corner at Peet's Coffee in San Francisco instead of bopping into the numerous, no line included, Starbucks. Because... Peet's had better coffee. Best coffee I ever had... at Turtle Bay on Kona drinking Kona coffee. Yes, my life is charmed. Best coffee now? Anything brewed in my French Press. Amazing coffee. Mmmmm... coffee.

    1. Again, french press = perfect coffee moment!

      You are, indeed, a SERIOUS coffee lover! LOVE that! Best coffee ever had was Kona when I was in Kona! A trend!

      You have to try this coffee and let me know what you think.

  7. Lyndi,
    I think I must have thought that you had live links in the listing at the bottom of the post. The share link works as well. We are in NWA this weekend so no WWFW festival for us this year. Sad:(

  9. I don't drink coffee much, but my husband has to have it every morning to wake up.

  10. I don't drink coffee everyday. I drink it more for pleasure than out of necessity. It's especially yummy on a cold winter's day with a shot of creamy Bailey's!

  11. I posted it on Facebook, too. But it wouldn't let me tag you!

    I like it as a special treat for the most part, but some days it is a definite necessity!

    1. And I know you are totally outdoorsy, so this coffee would be perfect at the campfire in a stainless steel percolator!
