Coffee subscriptions services have already caught like wildfire in a handful of large U.S. markets like New York City. A year-old local startup called 12oz will be the first company to bring a bottomless coffee app to Nashville.
Bottomless means “unlimited.” Subscribers choose Basic at $70 a month or Premium for $100 a month. Basic covers drip, pour over, French press, and all tea varieties. Premium includes espresso drinks, such as lattes and cappuccinos. Members order drinks through the 12oz iOS app at the ten participating shops in West End, East Nashville, 12th South, Germantown, Brentwood, and Franklin.
“We’re excited to be rolling out 12oz in Nashville,” said Jordan Halvorsen, one of 12oz’s founders. “There’s the right mix of Southern hospitality and coffee culture here. The win for coffee lovers is obvious, but we also think the business model is a win for shop owners.” 12oz reimburses coffee shops the full cost of every drink served.
