Congratulations to Our 8th Roasterie Adventure Finalist!

We are thrilled to announce our 8th Roasterie Adventure Finalist!  Congratulations to Lisa Finholm of Milwaukee, Wisconsin-you’ve been entered to win a coffee bean-picking trip to Costa Rica!

Recently, Lisa moved from Kansas City to chilly Milwaukee, Wisconsin for her job.  Although she misses “camping out” to work weekends at both the Leawood and Brookside Roasterie locations, this photo proves that Roasterie products can truly be enjoyed anywhere–even in the snowy terrain of Milwaukee!

Lisa will join the following Roasterie Adventure semifinalists for the chance to win a bean-picking adventure in Costa Rica and other great prizes:

  • Lara Carlson of Alma, Arkansas
  • Jason Ebberts of Overland Park, Kansas
  • Jaime Sheickert of Prairie Village, Kansas
  • Mandi Anderson of Lenexa, Kansas
  • Amanda Loftin of Shawnee, Kansas
  • Holly Urkevich of Kansas City, Missouri
  • Sara Danner of Raytown, Missouri

“If I win the trip to Cost Rica, I would take my father with me,” explains Lisa. “He has always encouraged my photography.  I think he and I would make a very fun experience out of it.”

Haven’t heard of The Roasterie Adventure?  You need to get on board!  In honor of our 20th anniversary, we are running a photo contest in which participants are entered to win trip for two for coffee bean-picking in Costa Rica (and many other prizes).

The Roasterie Adventure asks participants to submit a photo that portrays the Roasterie brand in day-to-day life (through the Roasterie name, logo, product, café, factory or other representation).  After submitting, participants must encourage their friends, family members and loved ones to publically vote for their photo.  The fourteen photos with the most votes (plus an extra winner from The Roasterie’s recent Mug Shot Photo Contest) will advance to the semifinal round.  A final winner will be selected by The Roasterie staff, including Bean Baron Danny O’Neill, in July of 2013.

The Roasterie Adventure will run from January 1, 2013 until June 30, 2013.  Upload your favorite Roasterie photo at and then vote for your favorites!  Good luck!
