The History of Coffee News
The history of Coffee News history begins with Jean Daum. The idea came to Jean while sitting in a restaurant waiting for her meal. With nothing to read but the back of a sugar packet, the idea struck her! What a great opportunity to provide light reading material for patrons of restaurants, while helping community businesses market themselves where it matters most, locally.
Jean’s background in advertising helped her design a restaurant publication that’s fun and entertaining. After many months of research, Jean packed Coffee News® with uplifting and humorous stories, facts, trivia, horoscopes, local event listings and most importantly, local small and medium-

Who is this Coffee News Guy?
He doesn’t have a name—he’s just the Coffee News Guy—but you know him. His cheerful, waving self is in the front of the crowd at the top of every edition of every Coffee News, no matter the city, country, or language. He looks good in tan. He’s usually hidden somewhere else in the paper, and if you find him, you might win a prize pack from your local publisher. The cartoon version of the Coffee News Guy represents what Coffee News always has been about: he’s cheerful, he’s friendly, he’s funny.
He offers a break from a busy lifestyle and negative news, giving readers the brief distraction of interesting tidbits, quotes, jokes, and uplifting predictions about their own lives. The Coffee News Guy knows all this. That’s why he’s smiling and waving. Welcome to the family. Enjoy.

July 31/2017: Reader – Nascar Race Winner:
“Hi Walter, Thanks again so very much for the opportunity to take in the Nascar races this weekend. It was great fun and four of us went both nights, getting full use of the tickets. Herman never showed up so we could not thank him also. The BBQ dinner was very yummy, reserved seats were awesome, specified parking was great, and we felt pretty spoiled!!
So much appreciated and again, we love your Coffee News!! (even more now than before). I hope you enjoyed your golf, while we were out at the races cheering, needling each other as to who would win, and watching people around us that had far too much to drink. When we left for the night, there was a huge line-up on the road, and we witnessed police having pulled over a vehicle and a man in handcuffs. So that was the end of our night and we safely traveled home arriving safely there in one hour.
Thank you and have a good week”
