About Better Than Coffee®

Better Than Coffee® was founded in California, by Valerie Milovic, a French lady, self-proclaimed “energy drink addict” working in corporate IT. After needing at least one energy drink to make it through each day, she began searching for healthier alternatives. Three years and about 3,000 homemade bars later, she found a combination that provided lasting, natural energy without coffee’s crash or energy drinks’ artificial ingredients. Valerie then partnered with nutrition experts, scrutinizing every ingredient and turning down countless recipes to arrive at the bars we make today.
