The line is available in Escape, Lean and Focus varieties featuring all-natural, clinically proven ingredients to help consumers relax, lose weight and focus, respectively. Escape contains a full serving of L-Tea Active, a safe, all-natural amino acid found in green tea leaves that is clinically proven to reduce minor or occasional stress without inducing drowsiness; Lean includes 400 mg of Svetol, an all-natural green coffee bean extract that can help with weight loss; and Focus boosts cognitive function with 200 mg of Cereboost, an all-natural, fast-acting derivative of American ginseng clinically proven to improve concentration as well as short- and long-term memory. All of the coffees are cultivated from 100 percent Arabica, hand-roasted, dark coffee beans grown in Central and South America. The beans are handpicked and micro-roasted in small batches before being blended with functional ingredients and packaged. A 15-count box of Coffee Blenders retails for approximately $16.99 on www.coffeeblenders.com and www.amazon.com. The company plans to launch the line in select retailers later this year.
