Starbucks and MamaPop Want You To Have an Espresso Maker ***Contest Closed***r


***Contest Closed*** Sometimes you want a new, better puppy with added tail-wagging power.  Sometimes you want a robotic hand and your own Dance Dance Revolution machine. And sometimes you just want a kick-ass cup of espresso.  Well, Starbucks and MamaPop want to give you a gorgeous espresso maker to celebrate the launch of Starbucks Vanilla Frappuccino Light (50% fewer calories and 60% less sugar)! Because one out of three ain't bad.  Contest details after the jump!

First, you will ask me: Palinode, is this espresso maker awesome? And I say: awesome? This biznatch is orange:


In order to win this decidedly excellent Ascaso Espresso Maker with a value of $550, all you need to do is answer my fiendishly not-very-difficult trivia question:

Q: What film director has his very own signature brand of coffee?

BONUS Q!: What is your favorite film by said director and why?

Leave your answer in the comments, ONE ENTRY PER PERSON.  The contest is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada and will run until noon on Tuesday, April 6th, after which time one lucky commenter gets the Ascaso Espresso Maker, sent to you direct by catapult. Or something. I don't know every last detail.

Also, because we like you and we want your choice of sweet flavoured coffee beverage to be healthier than falling down an elevator shaft, feel free to grab a coupon for $1 off your next Starbucks Vanilla Frappuccino Light below.

David Lynch, Blue Velvet (still)


David Lynch - Blue Velvet. I have no room on my kitchen counter but I want this Espresso Maker so bad!


David Lynch is and Paul Newman was a director as well and both have their own signature coffees. My favorite David Lynch movies are Elephant Man and Blue Velvet and for Paul, Cool Hand Luke and Road to Perdition. Thank you!


David Lynch - Signature Cup


David Lynch. And I guess Mulholland Drive?


David Lynch. I loved Mulholland Drive

April G.

David Lynch! His movies are too weird for me, but I love Twin Peaks.


David Lynch - Mulholland Drive (to fit in with the masses so well)


Social Networking Platform

David Lynch



Lynch and I don't really like him but I DO love me some Lattes? I guess "Elephant Man"?


David Lynch.

And Elephant Man would be my first choice. Blue Velvet and Twin Peaks are great, but I like that EM is a bit different from his usual fare. And Lost Highway- wow- scary stuff.

P.S. I'm a first time momma to be, have gone cold turkey on the coffee for the time being, but think this would be the perfect way to get back into my caffeine addiction, post-babe. :)

Rebecca K.

David Lynch - Wild at Heart


David Lynch and I didn't like Twin Peaks but watched it occassionally to get my crazy fix.

Mike Anderson

David Lynch-Dune. A great movie.


David Lynch, which...um I'm not so sure I want his coffee. Great director, but he's crazy, right? Though Blue Velvet was pretty genius. I watched it only once many years ago, but the movie (especially the beautiful/ugly tone) still sticks with me.

And the orange? Yummy.


David Lynch


It would have to be David Lynch and Twin Peaks , it is the only one that I have seen of his films and it was realllly good!


my mother would love this


David Lynch is the answer. And while I know that many folks are going to vote for Mulholland Drive, I have to vote for Dune. It was an awesome book and a completely over-the-top movie.


Yes! David Lynch..

Love his work - LOVE my daily espresso!

My favorite - Twin Peaks (even though it was TV). If restricted to film, I am a sucker for the nonsense he made out of Dune (wonderful book, stinky adaptation; I found it entertaining). ...Or Eraserhead! (pure Lynch - fascinating to be sucked into his mind, not too comfortable to hang out there).


David lynch


David Lynch, & Dune. Pick me pick mePICKME!?!!

paige chandler

David Lynch Baby!

Susan C

David Lynch. My favorite movie he directed is Wild at Heart, which is very strange and sexy!

David Lynch. Elephant Man. Because as a budding high school cinefile, I dragged a bunch of my friends to see it one Friday night after Bowling Club or something. I believe they were expecting something cheesy and Scifi. Instead they got Sir Anthony Hopkins. In black and white. To their credit, they all stayed to the end, and "I am not an animal!" became something of a catch phrase in our little social circle.

Julie M.

David Lynch. And I'm embarrassed to admit it, but I've never seen any of his movies. I promise to stay up late and fix that if I have a fancy new caffeine source, though!

Steve Scott

David Lynch

David Lynch
Cheated by looking at other answers.
No so devilish.

Theresa Shafer

Dune, as a reader of Frank Hebert's books, I greatly looked forward to the film. I was pleased. Many items were missing but the soul was there. I have seen Dune on TV, movie theater and have the DVD. All three have slightly different twists due to time restraint.

sigh....Enjoy the film.

Jean F

David Lynch. Elephant Man


sign me up


Well, I guess it's David Lynch :P And I haven't seen any of the movies. Sorry about that.

Michelle Nice

David Lynch and yes I still cry every time I watch The elephant man ~ Thanks for the fun ?

Tracy P

David Lynch. I love Mulholland Drive!

tracy davis

David Lynch! Dune! Want coffee

Diane R.

David Lynch -- Elephant Man. Probably that one is my favorite because I had read about Joseph Merrick before I saw the movie. His story touched a sympathetic chord, and the movie was fairly accurate.

Frank i.

1: David Lynch

2:Mulholland Drive


David Lynch, Elephant Man

Teresa Carter

David Lynch is the director who has his own signature coffee brand. I am a huge movie buff and I own over 600 movies, but I have to be honest that David Lynch is not a favorite. If I had to pick any of his movies it would be Dune because I am a huge sci fi fan. However, more importantly I am a huge Starbucks fan and it would be completely awesome to win the espresso maker.

Elizabeth I

David Lynch - Dune


david lynch , dune !

Cynthia C

The answer is David Lynch. Favorite film is Blue Velvet because of Dennis Hopper's memorable performance.

Pamela Simon

David Lynch; The Elephant Man. I loved this movie, and remember watching it as a teen. I cried and cried- it was very touching.


Both - David Lynch and Paul Newman.

Heather McDonough

David Lynch and Dune!

Dawn Moffat McMaster

David Lynch - The Elephant Man, because I watched in grade school, which means I probably missed its essential lynch-ness, but damned if the lesson on being nice to people who look different wasn't burned into my brain.

Deborah Wellenstein

David Lynch. I really loved The Straight Story-it has a lot of Lynchian effects, but really is quite different from some of his other movies. Or maybe my favorite is The Elephant Man.


David Lynch! Blue Velvet! Espresso! Hooray!


Director David Lynch.
My favorite film by him is Blue Velvet probably because it was so cutting edge at the time and I saw it at a pivotal point in my life when I could actually understand. It was very influential to me.

Elephant Man
Thanks for the chance.

Jim Price

David Lych and I've actually had his organic cofee and was pretty good!

My Favorite film by David Lynch was The Elephant Man which had a great plot and was such a great movie!

I will never forget the one line of "I am not an animal! I am a human being."

Monique Rizzo

David Lynch

Thanks for the chance.

Ed VanEtten

David Lynch. Blue Velvet.

Lisa Woods

David Lynch and I guess Wild at Heart.


Um...David Lynch, maybe?

Oh, I'm so glad people reminded me of Dune. I might have actually liked that one. Mostly, I like the idea of David Lynch more than I like his actual movies.


David Lynch


Dune would be one of my favourites!


David Lynch and definitely Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me


David Lynch:
Blue Velvet, It kept me pretty captivated trying to understand the "blue velvet" girl the whole time!


David Lynch

Christie Mace

David Lynch is the answer.

My favourite is Mulholland Drive because it is such a twisted movie and not what you would expect!

Nadine McKenna

David Lynch Dune

David Lynch-loved Mulholland Drive

Grace Struthers

David Lynch and Dune would be the fav as its a classic.

Q: What film director has his very own signature brand of coffee?
David Lynch

BONUS Q!: What is your favorite film by said director and why?

Deb S

David Lynch --Twin Peaks
Paul Newman (Newman's own) --Rachel, Rachel


David Lynch. I liked Mulholland Dr. because of how all the different storylines are intertwined.
And I've always wanted an espresso maker of my own!

Brooke Schaitel

David Lynch has his own signature brand of coffee. My favourite movie directed by David Lynch is Elephant Man. First of all it was directed the year I was born 1980 and secondly I love Anthony Hopkins and it was based on a true story!!!

Jim Lewis
