“Travel is like a good challenging book: It demands presentness — the ability to live completely in the moment.”

Why do thousands of businesses around the world rely on Coffee News?


love coffee news

There’s enough bad news out there. Coffee News engages and delights readers with new stuff to look for each and every week: trivia, inspiring quotes, horoscopes, and clean, corny jokes. It’s always positive.

And most of all, we love searching through the ads to find the little man!

Coffee News costs less than other advertising. Imagine someone handing out your business card to 1000 people each day at a cost of $4.60. That’s not a lot of money for extraordinary value.


All ads in Coffee News are EXCLUSIVES, meaning we only allow one type of business in each edition, allowing you to LOCK OUT your competition.

foundthelittlemanNo stone was left unturned when it came to the design and content of Coffee News. It employs 17 psychological and super-learning techniques to boost readership and results for advertisers. Your ad is always on the front or the back page — never lost on page 22 or nearly invisible within the vast and cluttered universe of cyberspace advertising.

Not to mention the Little Man Contest that often draws readers to the ads FIRST.

BrandEffective advertising is consistent and repetitive. In other media, small businesses get priced out. They can’t afford the consistent repetition that an effective campaign requires. Coffee News is easy. It comes out each and every week and is available 7 days a week, 3 meals a day — so that you can be known by the local community.

Your prospects may not need you when they first see your ad, but wouldn’t it be nice for people to think of you when they do?

restaurantsBe in the right place at the right time. With Coffee News, you are targeting your local consumers, and not paying for markets that you are not in.

Where do the people who live, work, and eat near your business go, often, to stop and relax for a few minutes and spend money? Restaurants. And that’s where you’ll find Coffee News.
