Burn Wood, Not Beans

With fall and winter approaching, it won't be long before we're cleaning out the fireplace and stocking up on wood for the season. And if you just so happen to have your very own woodpile in the backyard, we've got a contest for you. Matt’s Wood Roasted Organic Coffee, a roaster in Pownal, Maine, is running a “Show Us Your Woodpile” photo contest. The person with the best photo of the wood they’ll be burning this winter will receive their choice of a Bodum grinder or Aeropress coffeemaker, plus free whole-bean coffee for a year. The only requirement is that you actually stacked, or helped to stack, the wood in the photo yourself. Submissions are due by November 15, and photos can be emailed to woodpileATmattscoffee.com. Entries are limited to two per person.

For more contest rules and details, visit the contest announcement page. This photo from Matt's website should provide some good inspiration.

I have a dog, if only I had a woodpile... that's a great photo.

Wood roasted coffee! I had never even heard of it until this post. I'm in the $4-shipping range, so I might have to order the three-bag sampler.

Shame I have no wood pile, though, nor even a fireplace.
