Comment to win a graphic guide to coffee drinks (poster) – winner announced

Posted to Contests  |  Nathan Yau

We saw this handy dandy coffee guide by Plaid Creative a while back. Oh so clean. Oh so informative. The world of fancy pants coffee drinks can be confusing, but it doesn’t have to be with this poster on your wall to guide you through the most difficult challenge in life: ordering coffee.

With some updates and corrections to the original, The Perfect Pour is now in poster form.

How to win a copy

Want a free poster for yourself? Leave a comment below, and tell us what your favorite coffee drink is. If you don’t like coffee, well, why do you even want this poster? Or if you must, just make a drink up. I’ll have a soy caramel venti mocha chai iced tea lemonade drink. And I want it steaming hot.

Leave your comment below by this Sunday, August 22, 10pm EST. Then come back here to see who won. Good luck!

Update: Congratulations to David! Thanks everyone for entering. Still want a print? Grab one from Plaid Creative.
