  • Northeastern students create a ‘way to eat your coffee’

    Boston Magazine - 09/26/2014

    Faced with the tedium of an 8 a.m. financial accounting class, two Northeastern University began looking for a way better way to start the day. Constantly pressed for time and unable to get their early morning caffeine fix, freshmen Johnny Fayad and Ali Kothari began building an all-in-one energy bar that was not only nutritious, but infused with full shot of espresso.

    “We were looking for a quicker way to get going in the morning without sacrificing nutrition,” Fayad says. “We thought, ‘Why can’t we just eat our coffee?’ Unlike Red Bull and 5-Hour Energy and all those unhealthy energy drinks, we didn’t want to sacrifice nutrition. We wanted to provide people with a healthier way to get energized throughout their day.”
