About Us

Originally founded by coffee-deprived college students, Eat Your Coffee is on a mission to help people get energized and get more done with naturally-caffeinated snacks made with real, ethically-sourced ingredients. Every Eat Your Coffee Bar is caffeinated with a full cup of Fair Trade coffee and made with real foods so you can feel good with every energizing bite.

Our Farmers + Our Coffee

We use only Fair Trade coffee beans which means we pay farmers fair wages for every coffee bean we source. From bean to bar, we believe in supporting the farming communities that make Eat Your Coffee possible.

Our Team

We’re small, but energized. Get to know us!

Johnny Fayad

CEO and Co-Founder

Johnny’s an LA native and Eagle Scout who can’t get enough of Parks and Rec, Lebanese food, and pour-over coffee (when he isn’t eating his coffee of course).

Ali Kothari

COO and Co-Founder

Apart from being an avid world traveler, Ali is a self-proclaimed master of ping-pong who eats weird food like strawberry cream cheese, eggs, and turkey bacon on a blueberry bagel.

Kate Prince


Prior to joining the EYC team, Kate worked at General Mills with a portfolio of brands. She loves long strolls through the grocery store (weirdo), all things Christmas and is the proud owner of the EYC office dog, Quincy.

Allen Meringolo

Sales Manager

Allen believes in the tried and true adage “breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” When not running his cholesterol up to unhealthy levels, you might find Allen listening to an NPR podcast or writing self-important & overly verbose Facebook posts.

Meghan Kotz

Content & Design Manager

Not only is Meghan a (very) proud mom, she is also a make-believe woodworker. In her free time, you might catch her watching a weird documentary, "favoriting" sloth videos, or casually trying to take your pets home with her.

Lauren Geary

Operation Intern

A look inside Lauren’s backpack will tell you everything you need to know - she loves books (you’ll always find 2+ novels weighing her down) and she’s resilient (all that hexagonal graph paper for Organic Chemistry, a wicked tough class).

Join us and get energized!
