Coffee and newspapers: a business model blend

Coffee and newspapers: a business model blend

Richard Horgan:

From north of the border, a rather interesting new revenue experiment. Canada’s largest newspaper, the Toronto Star, this week announced the launch of a new monthly in-house subscription service: Headline Coffee.

Yup, a coffee subscription service from a newspaper much like the wine clubs that many UK newspapers have. Makes good sense: coffee and headlines are just a perfect combination.

Mmm. Coffee. Aeropress time.

(My faourite UK coffee subscription of the moment is Pact Coffee, which has no newspaper links, but excellent beans. Give it a try.)
