Northeastern University students create an edible form of coffee
USA Today - 09/22/2014
For many college students, 8:00 a.m. classes are the end of the world. What’s even worse is not having time to eat breakfast and energize before and during that class.
Constantly experiencing this problem, two students at Boston’s Northeastern University questioned, “Why can’t we just eat our coffee?”
Co-founders of New Grounds Foods, Johnny Fayad and Ali Kothari, were tired of waking up as freshmen, for their 8:00 a.m. financial class and not having time to grab breakfast or even a coffee. They wanted a simpler way to get their day started without sacrificing nutrition, so they created the CoffeeBar: an all-natural energy bar that is infused with a full cup of fair-trade coffee.
