My Keurig was the best present I ever bought myself. I use it every day and – by shopping around for the k-cups and never wasting any coffee, it’s not costing me much. I highly recommend a single cup coffee maker for anyone on the go, living alone, or with a significant other that doesn’t share the same taste in coffee.
I haven’t seen the Suncana brewer by Blu Tigres yet, but I can tell you not to give up a chance to win one. This single service machine claims to offer better quality than its competitors and has environmentally friendly coffee pods. After you make your coffee, the pods, which are 100% biodegrable, can be used as fertilizer for your garden!
If you got to the Blue Tigres website and sign up for their newsletter, you will have a chance to win one of their Suncana coffee makers. Hurry, though, the contest is over July 1st.
From coffee to vodka (why not?), I have another offer and this one is an even better prize. Russian Standard Vodka has launched an “Incredible Pursuits” competition. This nationwide search is looking for extraordinary innovators. If you are an entrepreneur – from any industry – you can compete to win $10,000 to finance your endeavor. In addition, the winner will receive mentor sessions from an expert in their field, a party in Miami (with three of your closest friends) to celebrate your achievement and a two page feature in a number of regional magazines.
Russian Standard Vodka, which was started by Roustam Tariko using top quality Russian winter wheat and water of glacial origin, is now available around the world, selling nearly three million cases a year. It is this entrepreneurial spirit that has launched the contest,Enter the contest by creating a profile at RussianstandardPursuits.com. and to garner support from their friends and local communities.
Ask supporters to vote for your project. The voting process continues through August 9th. Voting will account for 25% of the overall score and entrants will also be judged by Russian Standard Vodka for Passion, Perseverance, and Ingenuity.
Visitors will be able to review their peers submissions and vote up to five times each day. There will be a prize for frequent voters of a set of four of the brand’s signature Moscow Mule copper mugs. Voting for round one ends August 9, 2013, and then semifinals will be voted on August 19-September 13. The winner will be announced October 1st.
