Lara's got a great story about how she got started on this career path. After a corporate career in marketing and advertising, she wanted to start her own business because she was a new mom. The burden of the long commute to work left her wanting to leave the corporate world.

Smart Sips Coffee pods are brewed in Brick Township in small batches to ensure consistency. They use an old-style process of flavoring the highest quality beans, infusing tastes and smells that inspire Lara in her own life, like the warm smells of pumpkin spice and cinnamon, or the pop of flavor that has made Raspberry Rum Ball one of their most loved flavors. Others have included Red Velvet Cappuccino, Chocolate Cherry Cordial, Chocolate Covered Espresso Bean, Blueberry Cinnamon Crumble, Pecan Whiskey, Bananas Foster and Chocolate Peanut Butter!

All Smart Sips products are gluten free, trans fat free, parve and kosher. The coffees are also all sugar- and calorie-free, and the hot chocolates and cappuccinos are low-calorie (only 70 calories per cup.)

You can also get some of Lara's coffee on Amazon in single varieties or in sampler packs like “Flavor Lovers,”, “Chocolate Obsession”, and “Liquor Lovers.”

Although there is no actual coffee shop where you can go grab a cup, ordering the pods is easy and then you can try them one cup at a time!
