News and Coffee is bringing back to life a piece of our cities which little by little has been disappearing: The Newsstand. We wanted to show that it doesn't have to be, and that by giving the idea care and passion, it was possible to find it a new place in our daily lives. We believe that the best ideas are simple, and require perfect execution: Next to the necessary newspapers, a selection of independent magazines and books. And to go alongside? A great cup of specialty coffee to go.
