And The Roasterie Adventure Winner Is…


We are so excited to finally announce the Grand Prize Winner for The Roaserie Adventure!  The Roasterie selected Louise Anderson from Fairfax, Minnesota to win not just a coffee bean picking trip in Costa Rica, but the opportunity to shadow the Bean Baron for the day, have a one-on-one cupping session and receive 10 tickets to The Roasterie’s 20th Anniversary Celebration!

Louise’s photo really blew us away.  Not only did the general public love this American Gothic-inspired photo during its semifinalist popular vote period, but it is also very creative, Roasterie-branded and portrays a little of what The Roasterie culture is all about–hard work and a good sense of humor!

Plus, Louise’s winning photo doesn’t just incorporate The Roasterie brand–it tells a story of life on a Minnesota farm.  Of course, farm life would not be complete without a cup of coffee in the morning.

“We are farmers, so going to Costa Rica would be an incredible agricultural trip to see a different commodity being produced,” said Louise after becoming a semi-finalist.  Read more about Louise’s life on the farm and her special connection with The Roasterie brand here.

We are absolutely thrilled to have Louise (and her guest!) join us on our bean-picking trip to Costa Rica.  Plus, it just so happens that Louise turns 60 years old this year.  What a great birthday present!

We would also like to congratulate Jason Ebberts of Overland Park, KS, our first runner-up.  Jason wins a $200 gift certificate to a Kansas City Originals restaurant.

And our second runner-up, Ashli Salman of Overland Park, KS also wins a $100 gift certificate for The Roasterie!

A huge thanks to everyone who entered in The Roasterie Adventure photo contest.  We hope you had as much fun with it as we did.  Now’s the time to start counting down until January/February of 2014 when we get to take Louise on her first coffee bean-picking trip in Costa Rica!
