Love coffee? Ever dream of roasting your own blend? Well don’t give up your day job just yet, because here’s a fun contest that will let you do just that—for free. Enter to win our “Roaster For the Day” contest. In addition to bragging rights, you’ll get a chance to shadow a “master roaster,” learn fun facts, create a signature blend, and take home a year’s supply of fresh, sustainably sourced coffee.

The roasting party will be planned around the winner’s schedule. Whether you want to get together during the weekday or weekend is up to you! The winner must allow at least half a day’s worth of time in order to become a true coffee roasting “master.” Travel and accommodations to Portland, Oregon are not included.
