New Grounds Food Debuts Two New Flavors of CoffeeBar

Alyssa Stevens - 3 FlavorsNew Grounds Food, creator of CoffeeBar, an all-natural energy bar infused with a full cup of fair-trade coffee, is pleased to announce the arrival of two new organic, vegan, non-GMO, and gluten-free CoffeeBar flavors, Caramel Macchiato and Coconut Mocha.
The brainchild of Northeastern University undergraduates Ali Kothari and Johnny Fayad, the idea for CoffeeBar began when the now college juniors were freshman business students and in desperate need of finding an on-the-go and nutritious way to enjoy both their coffee and breakfast before early morning classes. In 2013, after many hours of dorm room experimentation and countless trial batches, Kothari and Fayad’s coffee-infused energy bar was created.
Now, almost a year after New Grounds Food’s wildly successful Kickstarter campaign, in which the co-founders reached their goal of $10,000 in 15 hours and raised $45,000 in total, the company is excited to introduce two new product flavors to be sold alongside their original Mocha Latte CoffeeBar. Beginning this month, coffee lovers can enjoy CoffeeBar’s Caramel Macchiato, offering a sweet hint of caramel, and Coconut Mocha, which lends an island-inspired, nutty chocolate flavor.
“The public response we’ve received on our concept of “eating your coffee” has far exceeded our expectations, and we’re thrilled to be able to add two, new delicious flavors to the CoffeeBar family,” said New Grounds Food Co-Founder Ali Kothari. “We look forward to sharing our bars and helping people meet the demands of a busy lifestyle!”
Manufactured in Spokane, Washington, CoffeeBar is artfully crafted utilizing the finest all-natural ingredients, like cashews, almond butter, dates and chia seeds, all of which can be found in your pantry – not a laboratory! Boasting a combination of protein, fiber, and natural caffeine with real coffee, CoffeeBar is organic, vegan, gluten-free, and non-GMO. New Grounds Food sources CoffeeBar’s most important ingredient, fair-trade coffee, from the non-profit organization, Chain Collaborative, which facilitates social, environmental, economic and quality-focused initiatives in coffee-dependent communities. Through this partnership, New Grounds Food is able to support members of the non-profit’s robust network, including its Vermont-based affiliate, Planting Hope, which has programs to support migrant coffee-pickers and their families in Nicaragua. If New Grounds Food sells 2.5 CoffeeBars a day, they are able to keep one more child in Nicaragua out of the fields and in school for another day. To date, the company has helped 30+ students stay in classes for an entire year.
New Grounds Food invites coffee lovers to eat their coffee and enjoy its new flavors for on-the-go energy and nutrition. CoffeeBar is available for purchase in three bar sample packs and 12 bar boxes on
About New Grounds Food:
New Grounds Food began when founders Johnny Fayad and Ali Kothari, then freshman at Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts, were tired of waking up late for their 8AM classes without the time for breakfast, or more importantly, coffee. They wanted a simpler way to get their day going, but without sacrificing nutrition, so they created CoffeeBar: an organic, vegan, and gluten-free energy bar infused with a full cup of fair trade coffee! CoffeeBars are available in three flavors, Mocha Latte, Caramel Macchiato and Coconut Mocha, online at and at select retailers throughout the U.S. For more information, please visit, or check out New Grounds Food on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
