What's your circulation?

As clients of print media, we’ve been trained to ask this question – but the real question is “How many readers do you have?”. Coffee News® is different, in that we track our actual readership! Because Coffee News® is strictly a voluntary read, found wherever people are eating, grabbing a cup of coffee, or waiting for service – we know that every paper that gets picked up is read – not once but multiple times! Based on a multi-layer readership study in 2002, worldwide, Coffee News reaches more than 10 Million readers each week. Locally we estimate weekly readership, is close to 20,000 readers.

Can I subscribe to Coffee News®?
