Baristas can achieve guaranteed trackable impressions while allowing us to target the specific genre and demographic that is responding well to the white coffee craze. Megs' status on Spotify and her unique sound that has become known as 'Crunge' is resonating well with Country, Pop, and Rock genres. This provides Baristas a cross-over audience that is being introduced to Baristas White Coffee endorsed by a relevant current artist."

Baristas recently kicked off a national multi-faceted advertising campaign which combines digital display advertising driving traffic directly to Amazon with a broad reaching terrestrial (over the air) radio campaign on over 120 stations nationally utilizing the top radio platform in the country. Now Baristas has added Spotify, the world's most listened to streaming music to its campaign currently underway. This campaign is the initial expansion of advertising and focuses exclusively on the unique white coffee Keurig cups. A media plan has been developed extending out over the next 6 months focusing on the expanding Baristas White Coffee product line as well as other Baristas products soon to be announced.

White Coffee is a rarity and is developed using a slow and low heat roast that preserves a much higher caffeine level than a traditional roast. Because the beans have been under-roasted, white coffee has a lighter taste than traditional coffee and is described as both neutral and nutty.
