Hello All,

For any coffee drinkers out there, my good friend Nancy's husband works for Boca Java and they are looking for bloggers who are willing to review their coffee and post about it on their blogs.


Here are the "perks" to being a reviewer:

The first 500 Bloggers who register to review Bloggers Blends will receive a complimentary "Bloggers Coffee Review Kit", including:

All 6 coffee blends to review
A free "Always Blog on a Full Tank" coffee mug
A free "Always Blog on a Full Tank" hat
Your review and blog name posted on bloggersfuel.com*
reviewed only to ensure non-offensive to other readers
Automatically entered in a drawing to win coffee for a year

The info site is here (https://www.bocajava.com/bfreviewreg.jsp).

Nancy's sewing blog (http://emeraldlanecreations.blogspot.com) is also a great one to check out

I googled this and saw that the press release was originally posted on Yahoo on April 5th, so I'm not too optomistic that I got in when I signed up on the 13th. :crying:

I'd love to participate, but I am not that much of a coffee drinker. Some of the blends do sound delicious, though!

Oh my gosh! I was just reading this and being all jealous and ticked that I didn't get in, but then I hadn't checked my email since 6 and when I finally looked at something besides KH emails, it was there!

I got my confirmation as well! :happydance:

Although I will admit thought that when I saw that they had shipped my order I freaked out for a moment because I forgot that I had signed up for this :oops: after further inspection I realized what it was :roflhard:

Bummer I didn't get one and I signed up right away as well. HM I guess this means no free coffee for me.

I don't have a blog :(

If you're interested, you can get one for free a bunch of places. The most popular seems to be blogspot.com but there are several others too. It's also pretty easy to put one on your own domain.

If you want to check out a few funny knit blogs try Crazy Aunt Purl (www.crazyauntpurl.com), Yarn Harlot (www.yarnharlot.ca) and JenLa (www.knottygirls.com/jenlablog)

It's looking like I didn't get in on time. I haven't gotten an email notification. I think I'm relieved, though. I would probably procrastinate on the blog reviews, anyway.

Holy Free coffee Batman! :shock:
I just got my shipment of coffee from Boca Jave. There is WAY more coffee than I thought that I would get! Seriously did not consider how much 8 ozs really was :roflhard:
6 8ozs bags of coffee. I am set for a while. :roflhard: I love the mug but the hat may end up being my outside working hat. Its just not all that pretty ;)

Well, I was surprised to get an email notification from them that I am getting a shipment, too!! I thought I missed the cut-off. I guess I'll be blogging about it, anyway. ;-) No biggie! I L :heart: VE coffee!!!

I got my shipment last week, but want to try at least 4 coffees before I do my reviews--I've had 2 so far & they've both been VERY good. I love the mug, too--DH is happy because I no longer steal his! :cheering:

It took quite a while to get the first email and I still haven't received my order although it did ship. Should be soon.

I got my package today :happydance:

Man, that's a LOT of coffee! Very generous! I already blogged about the Pajama Passion blend, like a good little blogger http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v486/j-m-h/smilies/angel.gif

I got mine too!!! It was like CHRISTMAS!!! I had my gall bladder out last Thursday, and I think the shipment came Friday....I couldn't bend over, much less pick it up....so I was kicking it across the floor to the chair, sat down, somehow maneuvered it up to the table....and WOW....what a GREAT box of stuff!!!

I haven't had ANY coffee since before surgery, cuz my sleeping has been wonky, I know that it'd just mess it up....but gosh...can't wait to get going into it!! :)

I am sipping my first cup from the shipment that arrived while I was gone on vacation!! I love the coffee mug!!! My DH was quite impressed, also, w/ the quantity of coffee we received -- 3 lbs! Wow!

We tried the Pajama Passion first. It was really good. I didn't make it as strong as they said though.. :shock:

I LOVE the mug, too!

I'm looking forward to that one, Jan!! It sounds wonderful.

I'm afraid I'd send you over the top w/ the coffee I brew, though. :oops: I like mine quite strong.

Here's (http://dotmom61.blogspot.com/2006/05/bloggers-fuel-pot-1-bloggers-boot-up.html) my first review.
