“A few months ago we were a couple kids with backpacks stuffed with caffeinated fruit juice and sample cups, and now one of the largest convenience store chains in the country wants to bring us on,” said Frava chief marketing officer, Alex Portin.

The juice drinks are naturally caffeinated through an infusion of green coffee beans, which provides 200 mg of caffeine per bottle.

Right now, Frava is primarily available only in the New York metro area, but by raising a goal of $24K on Indiegogo, they will also be available in 470 stores across the Midwest.
