KATY!

An e-mail was sent to her and she has 24 hours to respond before a new winner is selected via random.org.

Thanks to all those who entered and stay tuned for more great giveaways!




Ever heard of Green Mountain Coffee?   If you haven't, you should as not only are some of the brands organic but they are recognized as a socially responsible, innovative, high growth company by Forbes, SustainableBusiness.com and others.  They also have been ranked #1 on the list of 100 Best Corporate Citizens twice.  Green Mountain Coffee was founded in 1981 and are recognized in the industry for producing award-winning coffees along with innovative brewing technology.

Green Mountain Coffee has over 100 types of coffee that sell under the Green Mountain Coffee name and Newman’s Own® Organics brands, including one of the largest selections of Fair Trade Certified™ organic coffees in the country.

Green Mountain Coffee supports local and global communities by offsetting 100% of its direct greenhouse gas emissions, investing in Fair Trade Certified™ coffee and donating at least five percent of its pre-tax profits to social and environmental projects.  To read about their amazing partnerships and programs that are impacting others, go to HERE.

Until 12/15/09, orders of $55 or more, get free shipping with code WB234-2495.

Look at the yummy sounding seasonal varieties also available HERE.  Green Mountain Coffee also has a variety of other products:
 You can even join their Coffee Club for special savings, convenience and free!  Click HERE for more information.



NOTE:  I'm jumping ahead of the taste review as I want to get this giveaway up and running in time for a Christmas delivery for the winner.  The taste review for the French Roast is below with the other two forthcoming.

The Review will consists of the following three ground varieties:
  • French Roast - dark and complex, roasted and blended for bold but sweet intensity.  This is the first coffee my husband and I reviewed. As soon as you open the tightly secured bag, you can smell the richness of this dark blend that doesn't inundate a house with the aroma like some coffee does.  I note that because my oldest dislikes the aroma of coffee.  The aroma was deep and smoky and was just enough in the kitchen to make you come back for more. If you like dark blends, you will love this coffee.
  • Sumatran Reserve - exotically lush, sweet and heavy-bodied, born in the mountains of Indonesia.  This is a really smooth, rich tasting coffee that doesn't have a bitter taste.  The aroma is wonderful and has a slight hint of vanilla.  This is my favorite.
  • Ethiopian Yirgacheffe - a delicate fragrance of orange blossoms and vibrant lemony tones.  Elegantly sweet, with a clean finish.  Ethiopian Yirgacheeffe is a full body, bold tasting smooth coffee.  The aroma is just as pleasant as the other two blends.  This is a very delicious smooth coffee.  It's a must to have as well.

The packaging is a nice organic looking box with a dark green stretchy ribbon that keeps it secure.  The three elegant bags of coffee are displayed among matching dark green packing that makes a nice gift or treat for yourself.  I'm not only partial to Green Mountain Coffee because it's organic but also due to their impact on so many lives and their passion to outreach and encourage others.  In today's world, that is sorely needed.

I always prefer businesses that offer a money back guarantee so I was pleased to know if you are not completely satisfied with your Green Mountain Coffee purchase they will replace the item or credit your account whichever you prefer. This is their promise to you.

Note: Not all coffee sold through Green Mountain Coffee is organic. The Fair Trade samplers I am reviewing are organic but there are also coffees that are uncertified. 21% of total coffee pounds shipped in fiscal year 2008 were organic and are anticipated to grow.

The giveaway includes the following three whole bean varieties:

  • French Roast - dark and complex, roasted and blended for bold but sweet intensity. 
  • Sumatran Reserve - exotically lush, sweet and heavy-bodied, born in the mountains of Indonesia.
  • Ethiopian Yirgacheffe - a delicate fragrance of orange blossoms and vibrant lemony tones. Elegantly sweet, with a clean finish.
To Enter:
  • Follow my blog and leave a comment on what type of coffee you would like to try AFTER you visit Green Mountain Coffee's website.  Note: It cannot be one of the one's listed in this review/giveaway.
Extra Entries (two additional entries each):
Giveaway ends 12/15/09 at midnight.  Winner will be chosen by random.org.

Thanks and good luck!

I follow (of course!). ;)

And I'm a huge coffee lover -- and enjoy Green Mountain Coffee already. (We usually buy their Decaf Organic/Newman's line -- and I love that they collaborate!)

I'd be interested in trying the Green Mountain Spicy Eggnog variety. I got my husband a Keurig unit for his office last Christmas so we could give the k-cups a shot! :)
