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.

  9. Hm, I mostly brew at home in my Aeropress; I got sucked into the Starbucks gold card loyalty thing, so the benefits of buying their beans is hard to pass up!

  10. follow you on Pinterest, and have repinned many an item :)

  11. I love dark roast. My regulars are typically the big-chain coffees that are available in my grocery store – Starbucks Sumatra, Caribou Mahogany, Peet’s multiple flavors. I would love to try coffee made in small batches!

  16. I usually brew my own coffee. I live in a small town and we do not have a place to get coffee. If I go out of town I usually will get a Starbucks which is my favorite :)

  17. I like the Godiva coffees even though they can be a little pricey. Lately, I’ve been headed to the farmer’s market where there’s a store that sells indivdual Keurig pods for 75cents! I like it that way because it’s cheaper than buying a whole box AND I can get different flavors.

  18. I already FB like you :-)

  19. And I just liked Bird Rock on FB

  20. Right now I love Black Cat coffee beans from our local Fresh Market (Think Bristol Farms). I would love to drink anything from Bird Rock roasters and start the day with a cuppa my hometown ;-)

  22. The packaging sold me! It’s so pretty.

    I brew my own coffee and will treat myself only when I’m traveling or studying for a really hard exam.

  23. Averie you know I love my coffee! I brew mine in the morning and take it in a travel mug to work. I just think mine is better than the ones I can buy (either that or I’m too cheap). I’m a fan of Trader Joe’s coffee’s, I often make vegan latte’s and add extracts to flavor them to my craving.

  24. I make my coffee at home – French press style!

  30. I like making coffee at home, but sometimes it’s nice to get out – like a giant cup of hot starbucks on a chilly day!

  31. Oh, I just had to say how incredibly CUTE the packaging is for this Bird Rock Coffee. I can’t help it – it’s the designer in me :)

    I’m almost ashamed to say that I’m a Starbucks junkie, whether I actually go to Starbucks or not.

  32. i brew it at home. just moved to san diego 2 weeks ago and would love to try out (and support!) some local company. and feed a coffee addiction in the process is an added bonus. :)

  33. My favorite coffee is vanilla flavored… so yummy & no need for cream!
