Who is Cup of Coa?
During the 1960s, when the original founder Todd Newman was growing up, his grandmother used to mix a variety of cocoas to make the perfect hot chocolate for all her grandkids. Year after year this signature recipe was a treasured family secret until, in 1994, Todd Newman and his partners decided to transform their hidden treasure into a recipe which could be duplicated to share with the world.
Their product’s recipe began to take shape in 1995, when they profiled every existing gourmet hot cocoa. They discovered that most product lines relied heavily upon artificial flavorings, fragrances, and colorants. From the start, they knew they wanted a cocoa that was genuine in both color and flavor, derived only from the finest cocoas available and not reliant on artificial additives.
Cup of Coa was the official sponsored cocoa for the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City, Utah. In 2016 distribution was moved to Nebraska the home of Barista’s Daily Grind, which Jasmine also acquired ownership of.
What makes Cup of Coa different?
It is the ONLY Cocoa that can be served hot, iced or blended. It tastes delicious in whichever form you prefer. Try it for yourself!
