Coffee Giveaway

 Bird Rock Coffee Roasters of La Jolla, California recently won the 2012 Micro Roaster of the Year Award.  It’s the first time this award has gone to a local San Diego area coffee roaster.

Bird Rock Coffee Roasters sent me their Guatemala and Sumatra coffees to sample.  One word: amazing.   The quality, taste, everything about their coffee is first class, superb, and makes me want to drink myself into jittery oblivion.  So good.

In addition to just drinking as is, the coffee was lovely in homemade pumpkin spice lattes (vegan).


From their website, “At Bird Rock Coffee Roasters, we are all about quality: From the farmer to the beans, the roasting to the brewing, to our service, our relationship with our neighborhood and our impact on the environment. We are always striving for perfection. The green beans we seek must meet our high standards, and we roast and prepare this coffee with the utmost respect to those who grew it.”

I love coffee so much that I have a Coffee Reviews compilation post where I’ve mentioned dozens of varieties and brands of coffee.

And Bird Rock Coffee Roasters would like one lucky reader to win some coffee!  One bag of each of the coffee they sent me.

  1. I love dark roast coffee

  2. Why are you doing this to meeee? I drive by Bird Rock EVERYDAY and wish that I had time to stop every morning for the best coffee on this planet.

  3. I brew at home and go to coffee shops — I like both equally although it is always nice to have someone else make coffee for you when it’s really early and/or cold in the morning!

  4. Shuuuut uuuupp!! I brew at home. I want this. Can I have this? May I? Pretty please with a coffee bean on top?

  5. I brew my own coffee 98% of the time… with a french press. I actually usually prefer my own coffee to coffee shop coffee.

  6. I typically end up buying the target brand b/c I like some of their flavors and they don’t totally break the bank.

  7. I’m also following you on instagram (azulskies)

  8. I follow you on twitter and tweeted

  9. i love la colombe coffee..its so delicious and local in Philadelphia!

  10. I don’t have my own coffee maker, but when I’m at my parents house, I LOVE their home-brewed coffee. I’m not a fan of “coffee shop” coffee, but maybe that’s just because I haven’t tried the right shop yet. I don’t really like Dunkin Donuts.

  11. I like you on Faceboook

  12. Oh yum this sounds like real good stuff! We brew coffee at home… It’s just so dang expensive to get coffee out. Usually the hubs and I will go out for a special coffee/tea date a few times a month though.

  13. I often get my coffee beans from Bird Rock Coffee to brew at home. It’s a treat to take a walk, pick up my coffee beans, and grab a cup of their coffee for the walk back. They have soy milk out too which is a bonus. Yum.

  14. Looks like my comments got munched.

    I typically buy the target brand b/c it’s not too expensive and I like some of the flavors. Definitely brew at home.

  15. I follow you on twitter and tweeted.

  16. I brew it at home and love Pete’s coffee and a local Vermont company called Speeders and Earl!

  17. My favorite brand of coffee is definitely Dunn Brothers, its a Minneapolis based company. I try to brew at home (usually less expensive coffee since I am in college) but I will admit, I go to Starbucks a lot. I just love coffee and college totally addicted me to it!

  18. My favorite brand of coffee is Cups. It’s locally roasted coffee in Jackson, MS. I love their Guatemalan and Peru Organic blends. I brew at home usually, but I will occasionally grab a latte at a coffee shop if I want a treat.

  19. Mmmm, I love a French roast! I pretty much avoid buying coffee out..

  20. I don’t have a favourite brand of coffee.

    I usually buy beans and then grind them and brew at home during the week. On the weekends I occasionally pick up a coffee from a coffee shop.

  21. I don’t drink much coffee, but my husband brews it at home every morning. And he loves Fair Trade coffee, lots of brands.

  22. We have a Keurig, so we always brew at home! Love my K cups!

  23. My current fav is Seattle’s Best Level 4 Coffee. It’s perfect for iced coffee!

  24. I brew using a french press at home, but always get an americano at coffee shops. So many shops burn the drip coffee!

  25. I already like you on facebook!

  26. My favorite coffee is from Stone Creek which is a little local roaster! I pretty much won’t say no to any kind of coffee though… I am a wee bit in love :)

  27. We usually make coffee at home- and we try different brands. I think currently we’re drinking Caribou Coffee! =)

  28. There is nothing more satisfying than starting the morning at 5:30am with one, good cup of freshly ground coffee brewed in the french press. Actually makes me look forward to mornings!

  29. I don’t have one favorite. If it tastes good and wakes me up then that’s all that matters!

  30. I liked Bird Rock Coffee on FB too!

  31. We brew our coffee at home for the most part, but there is a cute little cafe down the street from us that is pretty good!

  32. I pretty much exclusively buy TJ’s Bay Blend. If not that, then Peet’s French Roast or TJ’s Sumatra. Always in a french press !!

  33. Sumatra is my favorite! It has lower acidity so it doesn’t affect my heartburn, therefore, it’s my go-to!

  34. I already follow you on fb :)

  35. I just liked Bird Rock Coffee on fb, too

  36. I brew my own!

    I follow both on Twitter.

  37. If I could afford to get Starbuck’s every day, you know I would!!

  38. La Colombe in Philly…and I see another commenter agrees!

  39. I brew my own coffee at home, I love all of target’s seasonal coffees!

  40. I buy bulk organic espresso from henry’s.

  41. I brew coffee at home mostly
