{Giveaway} A thanks and some coffee…

Giveaway Nescafe Dolce Gusto

When you’re a blogger, even a little blogger like me, you sometimes get approached to do sponsored content or to run giveaways. Sometimes I do it, more often I say no. But every now and then, you have an offer you can’t refuse. And this one comes with a difference.

Simply because I want to say thank you.

Thank you to all of you who have read along with this blog since the beginning just over two years ago. To all of you who have joined along the way and given me brand new inspiration and advice. To those who pop in and out and those of you who visit every day.

To those of you who have crossed over from just readers, but people who’s opinions and friendship I value more than I can ever clearly communicate to you effectively.

Maybe this sounds like a lot of thank you’s, and it probably is. But then again, words only mean so much, so I’m also thanking you by offering the chance for one of you to win a brand spanking new Nescafe Dolce Gusto machine and a whole bunch of coffee capsules.

I figure that anyone who is following along here loves coffee, no, needs coffee and what better way to thank you all for following along than giving one of these away?

How is this different to other giveaways I’ve run, you may be asking? Well, firstly – it’s COFFEE people! Secondly, normally I get something in return; a small payment or an experience for my family or maybe some product.

This time, there’s nothing in it for me; it’s all about you.

I can’t really review the Dolce Gusto machine, it’s still in it’s box. Waiting for it’s new home. If you’re keen, you can read more about it here. By all accounts it’s an amazing little machine, working wonders of caffeine.

To enter and be in the running to win this machine and a whole heap of capsules, all I’m asking in return is that you tell me how you like your coffee below.

You can earn extra entries by showing me some love on Facebook and Twitter. The winner will be drawn by random and the competition will be open until 5pm Sunday 22nd December.

    Given my FB profile name, there’s not much I can deny. I will specify Latte, skinny latte when I remember. Although the truth is, I’ll drink whatever coffee is served to me, regardless of whether it’s my order or not. I do check there’s no International Roast at the oldie’s before accepting – gotta have some standards/ be able to swallow. I always accept the coffee offer at the hairdresser (but not the hotel biscuits). And I’ve even drank Starbucks coffee(okay, we were in the US).
    And obviously, as evidenced above, I’ll waffle on about caffeine and my dependency at the drop of a bean.

  3. Aaron Bugg says:

    I like coffee….any type

  4. Sam says:

    Latte, strong, 2 sugars and a touch of milk. Nothing too fancy for me.

    I’m quite a simple sole.. I love a latte with a shot of caramel… sweet and strong but gives me that early morning buzz on my way to work. – Merry Christmas xx

  12. “2 Large lattes, one with one sugar, one with two” (trying to wean both myself and the bf ;) hehe) I hardly ever order just one so that’s my standard order! Machine looks super cool!

  13. megan says:

  21. Karen L says:

    Large skim latte with splenda….exciting right? Lol. ;)

  22. Megan Canfarini says:

    I like my coffee quite simple, milk and 2 sugars. If I can manage to drink it while it is hot( doesn’t happen often with 4 kids ! ) then that is an added bonus.

  23. AmberB says:

    In desserts – Coffee Cake or Tiramisu – yes please!

  24. Kelli Robinson says:

    Going back just a couple of years ago I had never had a cup of coffee. I have since started with a mocha which then turned into a weak cuppachino which turned into a normal cuppachino which has since having my 3rd baby turned into a double shot. And of course with a couple of sugars to sweeten it up a little.

  25. Cate says:

    One skinny, half strength cappuccino, with a piece of biscotti on the side! It’s what I love going to the hairdressers for- aahhh!

  26. sapna says:

    A coffee made by me, and had alone at my pace, watching tv is something I love the most. This normally happens early morning or late night as other times there is enough disturbance(two little boys) to topple over the coffee cup.

  27. Jen K says:

    Glad to have found your blog! And what good timing : ) Today I’d like my shot over ice cream or iced, thanks!

  28. Marcelle says:

    At the cafe, usually a simple cappucino – very old-fashioned. At home, made with Columbian beans in coffee press, full cream milk, cinnamon honey and enjoyed only when REALLY wanted

    Flat white, if the coffee is good I like to let the flavours permeate the milk and not be overpowered by milk. Yum I can smell the aroma now.

  85. Shelly says:

    There’s a cinnamon-flavoured coffee that I savour on the weekends. It reminds me of a similar coffee that my dad used to drink daily, so it makes me feel happy to think of him.
