Coffee News was launched in South Africa in July 2003 with the first issue being distributed in Pretoria the following month by the Head Licensee. Several more Editions started in 2004 and Coffee News was on a growth path. Soon after, however, an economic downturn severely affected business in South Africa and some Coffee News Publishers chose not to continue.

There are currently 16 SA licenses sold, with more pending.

Suitable Areas:

Coffee News is designed to support local businesses within a 10 – 12 km radius.
Areas that form "natural communities" – where people live, work, send children to school, visit a doctor, dentist, and do most of their shopping, would form a natural community. Suburbs often form their own.
Also to consider for a new Coffee News area:
 - Does it contain the right kind of businesses (think of the kind of services a home owner would need), and
 - Does it contain plenty of potential distribution outlets, eg, coffee shops, restaurants, hospitals, doctors’ waiting rooms, take-aways - in fact, anywhere people have to wait!

Many prime areas are still available all over South Africa.
