If there’s one thing all human beings can agree on, it’s the aggravating process of making coffee first thing in the morning when you’re too groggy to function. I mean, at that time of day, everything is seriously THE WORST. Birds chirping – ugh. Sun shining? Go home, sun. But I’m not a morning person, so let’s save our pleasantries for 9am or later, please and thank you. To complete this task, most of us either stop by our local coffee shop to have it made for us, or we prepare our own coffee the night before and set our coffee maker on a morning timer.
What if your morning coffee routine got even easier? No, you aren’t getting a butler. Sorry, guys. But Thermos Brand is doing something super cool to celebrate National Fill Your Thermos Brand Bottle Day which happens to be TODAY and we wanted you to know about it.
Thermos Brand has been around for over 110 years, keeping our drinks as hot or as cold as we need them to be, and they’ve decided to add an impressive level of proof to their quality reputation. In partnership with San Francisco coffee shop Ritual Coffee Roasters, baristas will grind and brew up fresh, hot coffee, pour it into a 40 oz. Stainless King™ Beverage Bottle, package it and ship overnight it by plane across the country, where it will be delivered to 25 contest winners’ doorsteps. The Overnight Coffee Challenge will show off the incredible seal and reliability of Thermos Brand products, providing hot coffee to be enjoyed in all its steamy, hot glory up to 24 hours later.
THAT IS INSANE. And by insane, I mean insanely cool. It should really come as no surprise though, since we’ve all grown up with Thermos Brand products – containing our PB & J sandwiches and dunkaroos via Ninja Turtle lunch boxes, and keeping our soup at cozy temp until we’re ready to eat it. If we could ask Ron Swanson about this challenge, I’m sure he’d have no interest in participating (because Ron never participates in anything, really), but he’d praise the brand for being the most American thing since the creation of the cheeseburger. (Which is the highest praise Mr. Swanson could provide, in case that wasn’t clear.)
The best part, is that the challenge kicks off on National Fill Your Thermos Brand Bottle Day, but doesn’t stop there. 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.
The Scoop on National Fill Your Thermos Brand Bottle Day:
The Thermos Brand Overnight Coffee Challenge kicks off today in celebration of National Fill Your Thermos Brand Bottle Day, an annual event held to honor the legacy, vast popularity and revolutionary on-the-go technology of the Thermos brand vacuum insulated bottle. Since 1904, Genuine Thermos Brand has provided unique solutions for keeping beverages and foods cold, hot and fresh. Thermos brand products have become a part of history, traveling with Robert Peary on his discovery of the North Pole, and forming part of the equipment of such aviation pioneers as the Wright Brothers and Count Zeppelin. Today, these beverage and food containers have become a staple of everyday life for everyday people with everyday needs. And they’re not just great for containing hot beverages or soup, summer is also a time for Thermos Brand products to shine because they keep your cold beverages ice cold – which is perfect for when you want to go for a hike or any other outdoor activity. You gotta stay hydrated!
Will you be entering? I know I will! Good luck, Gigglers!
