Subject: The 15,000 Follower Contest on Twitter!
 

To celebrate 15,000 followers on Twitter for my CoffeeGeek account, I've enlisted some very generous help from four companies:

Baratza @baratzatalk on Twitter (Grinder)
Able Brewing @ablebrewing on Twitter (GOLD KONE, Aeropress Pkg)
Espro @esproblog on Twitter (Espro Tamper)
Venia Coffee @VeniaCoffee (Coffee)

These companies are very generously donating some fantastic coffee items for me to give away to my most dedicated followers on Twitter. So we've come up with a contest, one that hopefully will be educational and informative for everyone following the #CG15K hashtag.

First, you must tweet a link to a photo, a how to, a video, an article (your own or one your found online) showcasing one (or more) of the following products:
  • The Able Brewing KONE
  • The Able Brewing DISK
  • The Able Brewing System
  • Any Baratza grinder, including the Encore, Preciso, Virtuoso, Vario, or Vario-W
  • The Espro Press in any size
  • The Espro Tamper (including their other tampers like the Dilliger)
  • The Espro Toroid Steaming pitcher

The more educational and informative the article, video, or photo, the better!

Second, you must include the hashtag #CG15K in your tweet

Third, you must also include a hashtag for the product you're tweeting about (so if it's the Able Kone, #ablekone; if it is the Baratza Preciso, #baratzapreciso

Fourth, you must be following my account and the account of the company you're tweeting about (that includes @ablebrewing, @baratzatalk, @esproblog, @veniacoffee)

Here's what a sample Tweet would look like:

Check out this great demonstration of finding new ways to use the @ablebrewing KONE filter! http:///link.com/linkishere #CG15K #ablekone

There you go - those are the rules to enter this contest! You can post as many #CG15K tutorial links as you like, but I'm using a random selection system that automatically chooses only one entry per twitter account. But please post as many as you like! There'll also be only one prize maximum per follower. And I will be very strict on the rules above: proper hashtag use, a good educational link, vid, or photo, and you must be following at least one of the contest sponsors, plus my account.

This contest is officially running from 2pm PST, Thursday May 2, through to 11:59pm PST, Sunday, May 5th. It is open to all of my real followers in North America. (ie, if an account is randomly selected and turns out to be a spambot or such it will be disqualified)

Because of the cost of international shipping and because of power requirements (110V vs 220V etc), unfortunately I have to limit this contest to people who are in North America. However, if you are outside of Canada or the US, but can arrange to receive a shipment in the US or Canada, you may still be eligible to win!

Prizes List:

From Able Brewing: 1 GOLD KONE filter, a fantastic gold plated filter! Also, a second prize of consisting of an Aeropress DISK, DISK FINE, and their new Aeropress storage cap for keeping coffee airtight in the Aeropress while travelling.

From Baratza: 1 Baratza Encore Grinder, delivered anywhere in North America!

From Espro: One Espro Tamper in any available size!

From Venia Coffee: 2 bags of Square Peg Espresso delivered to your door.

From CoffeeGeek (me!): 1 Espro Medium Press, delivered through Espro's recent Kickstarter program for the new press. I'm donating one I purchased!

Well the contest is over now, but there's some amazing content that has been posted to Twitter, showing a wide variety of how tos, reviews, and just plain cool photos of a lot of great coffee equipment being used. Check it out:
