laudable and FREE coffee *updated*

and the WINNER is……….#18, Kelly at Love Well. Congratulations! Email me at with your mailing address. You get your Sumatra!
Really, everybody, I do appreciate your entry! I love this give-away stuff from time to time because it means I get to give something back to you. You give me a whole lot. Now next time, more of you should enter. Seriously.

directtrade1Many of you know that our family loves good food, good drink, and a good cause.  World Garden, our favorite restaurant in Rogers, Arkansas, combines those things, a place where ideas take shape and the world is better for it.  Rick, the proprietor of the Garden, runs a generous business, giving a substantial sum of his profits to support orphanages around the world.  

Rick and his artisan roaster, Mark, have been serving small-batch roasted coffees, and whether it’s the Honduran Opalaca Gold, or the Indonesian Toraja Sulawesi, this stuff is worth trying.  Seth and I drink it every morning, and we’re not being paid to tell you this stuff. We buy because it is the best coffee we’ve ever had. A cause never tasted so good.

Check out their website,, and tell me what coffee you would like for me to send you, and we’ll randomly choose a winner before supper time on Sunday evening. For an extra entry, copy and paste the following tweet, and then leave another comment letting me know.

See @amberrunsamuck at for an easy chance to win an amazing bag of coffee for a cause from @worldgarden. {Pls RT}

Let your friends know about these guys. You won’t order a better coffee, and your morning perk will be changing lives.


Tweet with me? I’m Amberrunsamuck.

Thanks for the chance to win!

I have a compassion child in Kenya so I would love the 12 oz Kenya AA.

Goodness! What's NOT to like about their vision? If I have to pick one thing, it is that they are helping the small business (or land) owner succeed.

I also "tweeted the tweet." And my coffee would probably be the Toraja Sulawesi, since I don't know the difference between the two. :)

Ooh, ooh! Pick me!!! I'm not on Twitter, but my husband loves coffee (he fancies himself a gourmet ;-P) - what a cool idea! He said he'd try the Ethiopian Yergacheffe, purely for the fun name.

I would like to try the Costa Rica coffee - this is a great organization!

Reply July 31, 2009! I would love to try the Toraja Sulawesi. Thanks.

Ohhhh! Their coffee is divine! I haven't tried their beans yet but I would love to brew up a batch of Decaf Yergacheffe in my trusty french press.

Oh, what fun! Costa Rican coffee for me. Black gold, it is!

I am enjoying your blog, by the way, after wandering into your neighborhood today . . . following your comment on Apple Pie.

I am not sure if you noticed this, but in my sidebar on Apple Pie, under topics, I have listed "Coffee" . Clicking on that word will bring up a set of posts which all relate to coffee in some way.

I finally made it back to check out the website. I read through all of the blends and then kept changing my mind. I could enjoy trying any of them. If I win, I'll try Ethiopia Sidamo.
Thanks for the chance to win.

I'd have to try the Sumatra, because my husband and I are picky about coffee, and so far, we haven't found anything to beat our daily (homemade with Starbucks beans) Sumatra. But I would love to find a smaller place (like World Garden) that has equally good beans AND a sustainable mission.

Reply August 2, 2009!!! What a great company too. If I win, I'd love to try the Ethiopia Sidamo. Sounds yummy.

Congrats to Kelly! Thanks for the chance to win.

I'll be having a give-away in about 2 weeks- well, a week from this Thursday. It will be my 100th Thankful post. I'm having a giveaway because I am thankful for my readers. It's fun giving something that I enjoy to those that offer me encouragement.

Ok, enough rambling. Thanks for the chance to win. Thank Seth, too, for the Twitter contest.
