How Coffee News began ...

Coffee News originated in 1988 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada and was the brainchild of Jean Daum, an expert in not only advertising itself, but super-learning and subliminal techniques as well - many of which she designed and researched herself to make Coffee News one of the most potent, yet most affordable sources of advertising ever produced!

Coffee News took months of research before it even started. No stone was left unturned when it came to the design and content of Coffee News. It now employs no fewer than 17 different psychological and super-learning techniques to boost readership, and more importantly, the bottom-line results for advertisers. Because each advertiser is given an exclusive category advertisement, the advertisers will not give up this exclusivity in Coffee News if it's bringing them constant results.

It's no secret why Coffee News is so popular. "Everything in Coffee News is a first priority to someone. Some want their horoscopes, some can't wait for the lucky numbers, or the trivia to challenge friends with, then there's the funny or unusual news stories, amazing facts, great jokes, point-blank quotable quotes - all a challenge, inspiration, and more importantly - good fun!" says Jean Daum.

Sadly, Jean Daum passed away on 23 July 2007 after a long battle with cancer, leaving behind a legacy that will continue to bring smiles to millions of readers every week around the globe.
