A Giveaway for Coffee Lovers! GIVEAWAY CLOSED

You guys know i love my coffee. You know I especially love Douglas Coffee Roasters; I featured in my Last Minute Gift Guide that stills makes you look thoughtful and I post on Instagram about their coffee and cute mug often. (Seriously, it’s my favorite coffee mug. It has gold!)

Coffee Mug no background 300x300

So I’m thrilled that the guys at DCR offered to do a giveaway for my readers! I actually went to high school with some of the guys at Douglas Coffee Roasters, which is pretty cool, but this review is in no way influenced by that because I wasn’t that good of friends with them. hahaha! (But they’re good guys, I promise.)

While this coffee has been available in restaurants and cafes in Utah for a while, they weren’t available for the public to buy. But we’re all in luck because now it is! I’ve tried two different bags of their coffee beans and love them both. My favorite right now is the Bali Island Medium Roast. Their coffee is super cool because you select your bean and select your roast. And then it’s roasted to order for your 1 pound bag. Talk about custom coffee. Small batch beer is a thing and now apparently small batch coffee is a thing. 

Douglas Coffee Roasters is giving away two (2) bags of beans – your choice! – and a French Press to one of my readers. And I have French Press envy; look how awesome it is! Mine is just a boring ol’ regular one.)

To enter, just tell me how you like your coffee! I take my black, especially when it’s really good coffee. I wouldn’t dare taint it! 😉

For an extra entry, follow @DouglasCoffeeRoasters on Instagram. Be sure to leave a separate comment on this post for each entry and leave your instagram handle in your comment. 

Entries open until I blog on Sunday, March 2. And if you just can’t wait to see if you won, you can use the promo code “foodie” to get 20% off your order starting today!

    I put a little almond coconut milk in mine. For years I was all about the cream and sugar but I gradually weaned myself. I don’t think I could go to completely black coffee though.

    Black!! Or, on the rare occasion that I want a creamy treat in the morning, I do a bulletproof coffee: fresh-brewed black coffee blended (in a blender) with 1T of unsalted grass-fed butter, 1T raw coconut oil, and a shake of raw cacao powder. Sounds gross, but you have to try it!

    Depends on my mood, how I take my coffee… But the three most common ways:

    1) black
    2) + 1/2 a packet of sweetener (stevia or plain granulated sugar)
    3) + whole milk, about 10% of the total volume

    Hope to try some DCR 😉
