We've been contest crazy for the past couple of weeks and it's time to reveal our winners. A Gaggia Espresso Color and ROK manual espresso maker were on the line, so without further ado, let's find out who took home the swag.
The candy-apple red Gaggia Espresso Color went to Hiam Arfa of Seattle, WA. This popular semi-automatic machine is ground and ESE pod compatible, so Hiam will have two ways to brew great espresso. He'll also be able to steam and froth like a pro, as the Color comes equipped with a Pannarello steam wand. Got machine envy? You can still snag your own and save big. For a limited time only, we're offering 7% off all sale-priced Gaggia products with coupon code GAGGIASEVEN.
Our second winner, the proud owner of the ROK manual espresso maker, is Rick Primmer of Portland, ME. We decided to give away the eco-friendly ROK in honor of World Environment Day on June 5. Since this annual event, sponsored by the United Nations Environment Programme, is geared towards reminding us to be conscientious of the impact our actions have on the environment, the ROK was the perfect match. This manual espresso maker comes in a reusable tin and even includes a hand-powered frother for Earth-friendly cappuccinos. More impressively, all of the ROK's metal parts are covered by a 10-year manufacturer's warranty. We're getting our first full ROK shipment at the end of this month. Pre-order today, if you're interested in this espresso maker. It's going to be a hot item this summer.
