Mother’s Day Community Coffee Gift Basket Contest

One thing I love about cruise travel in a suite is the VIP treatment at breakfast every morning. My favorite part of each morning was sitting in the private dining room and enjoying a cup of coffee served in a Chambord French Press. I will admit that while I’m a world traveler, some things are still new and exciting for me – including having coffee served to me in a Chambord French Press. I guess it’s the simple things that make life grand for me.

When I return from a super-duper amazing trip, I sometimes stop for coffee and a chat with my friends at Community Coffee when I’m out running errands (the main office is located conveniently near Mall of Louisiana). They love to hear about my adventures and we catch up on the latest in the social media world and fun things going on in Louisiana. Of course when I mentioned the Chambord French Press part of my cruise, my friends were surprised that being such a coffee lover, I didn’t use one of these already.

Being the sweethearts that they are, they put together and sent me a Community Coffee Mother’s Day Gift Basket that includes a Hiraca Palm basket filled with a 34 oz. Chambord French Press, 12 oz. of their Private Reserve Founders Blend, and a cute little Community Coffee signature coffee scoop.

I absolutely loved it and in full disclosure, I begged Community Coffee to allow me to host a giveaway of the same item on It retails for $44.95 US and until April 30, 2010 is can be ordered with no shipping charged in the continental US if you use the promo code: MOM.

I have the basket sitting on my counter and I’ve placed cute little napkins in it. I love how Community Coffee supports the communities that it works with. I guess that’s why I’m such a big supporter of this company (who does NOT pay me to write about them FYI). Here’s a snippet about the baskets from the company site:

In Valle del Cauca in Colombia, young families who are eager to develop their farms and build a future for their children are cultivating coffee. To help build a renewed sense of hope and a brighter future for those young families, we agreed to pay them for their coffee beans at a price substantially above world market prices. Additionally, these hardworking families make beautiful baskets. Community Coffee Company purchased some to share with you. We thank you for helping us craft a brighter future for coffee farming families.

How do you enter to win one? Just leave a comment stating where you would like to enjoy a cup of coffee for Mother’s Day (whether you are a mom or not).
