Tierra Nueva was awarded the 2013 SCAA Best Product in Show and the 2013 People’s Choice award for their coffee bar product, Coffee Thins.
Since launching in 2011 Tierra Nueva has made excellent strides in establishing themselves in the United States marketplace. It has done so, by utilizing a new Globally Patented manufacturing technology platform. While Tierra Nueva has faced the usual challenges of new comers to the market, it has been successful in finding a niche with its fresh, flexible, and forward thinking approach to doing business. This vision allowed them to create its new hot item Coffee Thins .The producthas been well received by both those in the confectionary industry as well as in the coffee industry, bringing both the buyers and experts to think about the need of creating a new product category in the market place: Coffee products Ready To Eat (not drink). Coffee Thins is a bar made of 100% natural coffee combined with special ingredients, delivering an amazing true coffee experience, with a creamy smooth feeling. These sweet squares have the same bite and snap as a chocolate bar, but with zero cocoa liquor (Cocoa Mass). It is considered the perfect treat for coffee lovers, for those moments when you do not have the time or proper equipment to enjoy a cup of coffee. Forward thinking products like these are the ones that Tierra Nueva believes will separate it from other companies, in this extremely competitive space.
