The world's first Super Coffee was born in 2015 by three brothers, each a collegiate student athlete. As a freshman, the youngest brother was falling asleep in class after late nights in the library and early mornin...g basketball practices. He refused to settle for the sugary bottled coffees and energy drinks sold in his school store. Using a blender in his dorm room, he brewed an enhanced coffee mixed with protein and healthy fats from coconut oil for all-day energy. Super Coffee worked so well for him that he dropped out of school and hired his two older brothers to share his dorm-room dream with the world. Today, Super Coffee is sold on college campuses nationwide and will soon be coming to a grocery store near you!
P.S. Are you attending SXSWedu? Join us for a panel discussion “From Dorm Room to Board Room” on Student Entrepreneurship on March 7th at 11:30 AM. RSVP here: https://schedule.sxswedu.com/2018/events/PP81007.
