(Contest Rules; Winner chosen by certified random number generator.)
A few weeks ago, we posted a notice on Facebook that Farmer John’s coffee maker had died….right at the beginning of kidding season. Despite its name, kidding season is very serious. With approximately 250 goat births scheduled over a period of just three months, John doesn’t get a lot of sleep. In fact, all he gets is short naps, rising every few hours to go check the barn to see which does might be going into labor.
Needless to say, coffee is very important to John this time of year.
Here’s what John looks like when the first goats are born:
And here’s what he looks like about halfway through:
There’s no telling what he’ll look like by the time the last kid is born. (Just teasing, John!)
Part of what we love about having such a fun Facebook community, with virtual neighbors from around the world, is that we never know who will see our posts. (And the occasional pleas for help.)
We were surprised and delighted that someone from Krups USA happened to see the post about John’s broken coffee maker and offered to send John a new Krups machine!
And better yet…they sent a second one for us to use in a giveaway for one of our virtual neighbors (that means you.)
The machine that Krups USA has chosen for the giveaway is a really fancy one….top of the line. (Too bad we can’t enter ourselves. And Mom, you can’t either.)
It’s a Krups XP5280 Espresso Machine. It’s got a precise tamping mechanism, multi-directional milk frother and amazing 15 bar pump. If you don’t know what that all means, you don’t have to. Just know that it retails for, like, $400 and makes the best espresso, cappuccinos, and lattes you can imagine. And it’s pretty…stainless steel. Pretty matters.
