Espresso Heads Winner!

Yay! It's time to announce the winner of my giveaway. Firstly, thanks to those who entered. I enjoyed reading your caffeine related comments! Very enlightening! You guys sure have more diverse tastes in hot beverages than I do. Pumpkin Lattes? Wow! Never even heard of those before! I like coffee & I like pumpkin, but can't for the life of me imagine the two together tasting so good. I will be adventurous & try one if I ever see it on a menu somewhere, as I am intrigued by that combo. My preferred coffee style is rather boring in comparison to others. I drink Flat Whites. I drink them at home & I drink them at cafes. I'm not sure if 'Flat White' is a universal term, but it's basically a shot of espresso topped up with steamed milk with a fine layer of foam/crema. No froth. No flavours apart from sugar. I also love Italian Hot Chocolate! Sadly very few cafes in Brisbane make them. If you're not familiar with Italian Hot Chocolate, it is chocolate so thick that it needs to be eaten with a spoon. It's like chocolate pudding in a cup! Delicious! Ok, announcing the winner of the giveaway now. Drum roll...


...and the winner is...


Congratulations Sandra of Bubble Babble blog! Espresso Heads will be airmailed to you as soon as I have your address.


All bubble-wrapped, packed & ready to fly! Thanks again everyone for playing along. I'll have another giveaway next time I have something to celebrate. If I can't think of anything worthy of celebrating I'll have random giveaways regardless. Just because they're fun to do. In relation to the reason for this giveaway in celebration of finally opening my Etsy shop, I'm really happy about having a couple of sales within the first week. I wasn't expecting to sell anything straight away. If ever in fact! So thanks so much to those two sweet buyers who purchased my ACEOs. You gave me a real boost!
