Coffee Shop - Inside the Station

in business music

Starbucks set the standard for coffee shop music back in the 90’s and this genre of music has been evolving ever since. Our approach is simple -- create a station that can be played in a wide array of businesses and bring out that serene sense of focus that only good music for business can provide.

According to the National Coffee Association, 75% of U.S. adults drink coffee, and 58% reported drinking coffee daily. Whether it is a good cup of coffee, tea or a glass of wine in the evening, we believe Coffee Shop can take the edge off of today’s rushed lifestyle.

Here’s what you can anticipate:
