If “Democracy Dies in Darkness,” to quote the Washinton Post’s motto, then Journalism Dies With Bad Coffee–a critical issue that the paper has decided to tackle head-on.
The following excerpt was sent out from The Washington Post:
The Washington Post and Compass Coffee today announced the release of “The Post Roast,” a collaborative coffee blend in celebration of The 7, The Post’s flagship newsletter and podcast for busy, on-the-go readers and listeners.
The 7 newsletter reaches over 1 million subscribers, while the podcast is among the top daily news shows on Apple Podcasts.
“Mornings are always a busy time, and pairing coffee with a succinct news briefing like The 7 newsletter and podcast is a match made in heaven,” said Kathy Baird, Chief Communications Officer at The Washington Post. “We’re proud to partner with our neighbors at Compass to make a difference in the lives of busy Washingtonians as they get ready for the day ahead.”
“The Post Roast” contains hints of dark chocolate and toasted nuts, with a balanced blend that is empowering, eye-opening and illuminating. To complete the package, the coffee tin features a commissioned illustration by artist Raul Urias, complete with a QR code to access The 7.
The limited-time coffee blend will be available for sale online at compasscoffee.com and at all 16 Compass stores, including its Franklin Square location at The Post’s headquarters.
