    of caffeine is kosher and vegan and is free of GMOs gluten and allergens except for coconut in the Molokai Coconut flavor Bai5 gets its name from having 5 calories per 8 ounce serving for slightly more than 10 calories per bottle But Bai5 s biggest point of differentiation is found in the two words that appear under its logo Antioxidant infusions Weiss came across them fairly early in his career Now 45 he grew up on Staten Island and earned a bachelor s degree in finance in 1992 from Boston University Somewhere along the line I had an epiphany that I wanted to be in coffee A brief stint at a bank convinced him it would never make me happy nor would I ever be great at it Literally I just wanted to open a coffeehouse in New York and I studied to do that Recommended Reading Episode 6 George Faison on Heritage Breeds and the NJ Situation But he never did I stayed in the industry he says I worked with Godiva on their Café Godiva line then created a beverage they still sell called Chocolixir I dreamed it up in my kitchen That s kind of been my thing I create ideas in and around beverages Being involved with coffee Weiss knew about coffeefruit and the clear flavorless polyphenol rich extract that can be produced from it The cosmetics and nutraceutical industries were onto it as well using it as an anti aging and anti inflammatory ingredient In 2008 Weiss says I had the idea of repurposing coffeefruit as a functional ingredient in a drink He has his extract made in Indonesia from discarded coffeefruit The soil is volcanic he says I think it produces the best coffee and the best coffeefruit That drink in mid calorie form is what he asked Princeton consumers to try in 2009 By the end of that summer he had figured out how to make low cal taste really good and Princeton store owners began stocking it Bai5 drinks are just 2 to 6 percent juice but they have a bright fresh taste that gets your attention My father was my first salesperson he says Me and my dad were running around Princeton knocking on doors We had the right community at our fingertips to incubate this brand For that I ll always be indebted Weiss calls himself a disrupter The industry he was looking to disrupt soda was already in the midst of a sales slide that began in 2004 and continues today Consumers were beginning their mass exodus from sodas he says Bottled water is taking a lot of the share of stomach that soda used to occupy People no longer want to drink their calories especially millennials The problem with water as a safe haven though is that people get bored Enter Bai5 which comes in 10 brightly flavorful if misleadingly named varieties like Congo Pear Brasilia Blueberry and Panama Peach It s not that pears grow in

  • Meet the Man Behind Colbert's New Set
    that feeling of intimacy was huge In order to get this giant space focused down to this one area of the desk and chair I created a series of ceilings and balconies that bring the focus by steps down to the stage These balconies are spaces that he will use performers will use the band will use marching around but they are not the important thing I m using them to bring the focus down and contain the comedy The balconies also display Colbert mementos such as his mother s pennant from attending the 1963 March on Washington and the Captain American shield that adorned the old Colbert Report set The pennant rests on one of the wooden bookshelves that line a couple of the balconies The shelves are filled with real books including many donated by Fenhagen s alma mater Kenyon College in Ohio Recommended Reading Becky Quick Quick Study The shelves are an homage to the old Colbert Report set Fenhagen says They re there so he can display things important to him as well as send a message that he s more of an intellectual he s a thinking man he wants to have deeper conversations with his guests and not just promote stars latest projects All the above is macro What everything comes down to Fenhagen says is the desk and the chair Most late night desks are straight or perhaps L shaped Colbert Fenhagen says wanted a variation of the C shaped desk he had on the Report Colbert rarely did Report interviews at the desk but for Late Show he wanted to be able to turn in different directions and put his elbows on the desk and the guest could also put their elbows on the desk A lot of Hollywood guests want to turn and look at the audience He wanted more of a conversation His feeling was Let s lean into each other The desk shape allows that to happen Fenhagen showed the host a number of styles I was inspired by the shape of New York buildings he says but we decided that was too busy We tested a range of wood colors He wanted the wood to be warm and a little classy looking and we kind of settled on this reddish color The red has a lot of energy It s not a color used very much in late night so I liked it for that reason too I m not really sure why it isn t used much It tends to be more associated with news and politics maybe He s comfortable with that He is a little bit more political and he comes from comedy news so it made sense for him And it was a little bit of a nod to the old set He had this red white and blue going on We have a little bit of that in the Late Show set as well He s patriotic He really is as a person
