CoffeeCup Software is an American computer software development company based in Atlanta, Georgia, United States founded in 1996. The name comes from the company's origins in an internet cafe owned by its founder.

The company currently creates over 25 software applications for creating, designing, and editing websites and a number of online services for webmasters. The company's third product, CoffeeCup Direct FTP, was the first FTP program to incorporate text editing functionality directly into the interface in a "split screen" fashion.

CoffeeCup employs just over 20 programmers and designers and moved to new headquarters in the spring of 2007. In addition to a panel of user-advisers, CoffeeCup has a group of around 8000 “Ambassadors” who are invited to test drive new and existing software programs and report bugs and offer suggestions for improvements.

CoffeeCup's Software has won many awards, including the Shareware Industry Award [1] six years running from 1999 to 2004 for the CoffeeCup HTML Editor. Other awards include being ranked #400 in the Interactive 500,[2] 11 CNet Editors Choice Awards, 18 Tucows 5-Star Awards, and ZDNet Best Pick for Web Design Software.[citation needed]

History

CoffeeCup Software was started in a coffee house called “The Raven & The Sparrow” which was owned by the company's founder, Nicholas Longo. The coffee house offered free internet access to the public. This was the only location in Corpus Christi, Texas offering free Internet access at the time.[citation needed]

Longo bought the domain "www.coffeecup.com" and designed a website for his coffee house. He soon received requests from other business owners who wanted help designing their own sites. Longo started by designing those sites using Notepad. After designing a website in this manner, he felt there was an opportunity to create a program to make designing websites easier. Longo got together with a regular customer of his coffee shop who was a programmer and they created the first version of the HTML Editor.

Since the coffee house already had the www.coffeecup.com domain name, the fledgling software company was named CoffeeCup Software and the first program was named CoffeeCup HTML Editor. Longo posted the program on his website. Eventually, CoffeeCup began charging $20USD for the program. In 1996 Longo decided to put away the espresso machines and devote full-time attention to developing software.

CoffeeCup offers a core group of programs free to schools. CoffeeCup Software's K–12 Donation Program allows public schools to request the Educational Software Package (ESP) Free for classroom use to elementary and secondary public schools, and public libraries.
