The Roasterie Adventure Semifinalist #7 Has Been Chosen!

We are thrilled to announce our 7th Roasterie Adventure Finalist!  Congratulations to Lara Carlson of Alma, Arkansas–you’ve been entered to win a coffee bean-picking trip to Costa Rica!

Lara’s photo depicts her 21-year-old daughter, Kristen, on the wing on an airplane, drinking her favorite Roasterie coffee. Lara’s daughter has had her pilot license for about one year and was instructed by her father, a pilot himself.  After visiting Kansas City, Lara and her family could not help but fall in love with The Roasterie brand.  The family learned all about The Roasterie DC3 and even purchased coffee and a lunchbox online.  Ever since, the Carlson family has been hooked on Roasterie coffee!

Lara is now entered to win a bean-picking trip to Costa Rica, which she would love to share with her daughter, the star of the photo.

“This would be a great opportunity to add to Kristen’s life adventures,” said Lara.  “It would be a great mother/daughter trip.   Kristen is very interested in coffee and I want her to follow her passion for it.”

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

  • 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

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!
