SCHAUMBURG, Ill., May 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Americans are invited to win the chance to literally wake up and smell the coffee — and drink it piping hot as soon as it arrives via overnight shipment to their door — in the Genuine Thermos Brand Overnight Coffee Challenge, launching today on Facebook.com/Thermos.
To show the remarkable heat retention capabilities of Thermos brand vacuum insulated bottles, skilled baristas at Ritual Coffee Roasters in San Francisco, California, will grind and brew up fresh, hot coffee, pour it into a 40 oz. Stainless King™ Beverage Bottle, package it in a delivery box, and overnight it by plane across the country, where it will be delivered to 25 contest winners' doorsteps, ready to be enjoyed in all its steamy, hot glory up to 24 hours later.
Throughout this year, Genuine Thermos Brand will continue the Overnight Coffee Challenge by partnering with more of the best coffee shops throughout the country. Fans are invited to nominate their favorite coffee shops to be featured in the program. Both fans and coffeehouses can nominate themselves by sharing feedback on the Thermos Facebook page or tweeting @Thermos #OvernightCoffee.
