NSB Senior Vice President and Commercial Lender, Steve Pettengill, and Lisa Newmann, CEO of Coffee Snacks Inc
Our lenders know how to stop and smell the coffee.
Award-winning food innovator and entrepreneur, Lisa Newmann, has always believed that the best food is real food. But it was Lisa’s love of specialty coffee that inspired her to combine both when she created JavaUp® coffee-fueled superfood snacks in her Berkshires test kitchen. JavaUp’s two flavors of coffee bars (with more on the way) are now selling in offices and retail outlets, on airlines, college campuses, Amazon and at javaup.coffee. Made with chocolate, nuts, whole grains, healthy, crunchy seeds and the world’s finest sustainably-grown coffee, customers get a shot of organic espresso in a delicious, healthy and portable snack.
The bank’s support is making it possible for Coffee Snacks Inc to break open and lead this new food category — with our innovative and delicious JavaUp snacks — in retail outlets across the country and online.
- Lisa Newmann | CEO Coffee Snacks Inc
For Lisa, good ingredients are everything. As JavaUp® continues to expand its line of coffee-fueled snacks, the company is committed to sourcing coffee beans that are sustainably grown in a natural environment of varied cover crops, friendly to migrating birds, hand-picked on mountain terraces, and purchased from farms or co-ops that go beyond paying a fair wage. JavaUp’s exclusive coffee roaster is Six Depot Roastery, a Massachusetts company based in West Stockbridge.
