Pooki's Mahi's 100% Kona Coffee, Medium Roast, Single Serve, 24-count

Larger customers require product traceability, manufacturing inspections, specific certifications and a well-documented manufacturing QA inspection process. Pooki’s Mahi’s current NPI manufacture did not meet these requirements.

Beverage etailer startup of award-winning 100% Kona coffee K-cups®, Pooki’s Mahi, announced today the entire 100% Kona coffee, 100% Maui Mokka and 100% Ka’u single serves are Fair Trade certified and Keurig 2.0 compatible.

Pooki’s Mahi manufactures and distributes 11 different 100% Kona coffee, 10% Kona coffee blends, 100% Maui Mokka coffees, and 100% Ka’u coffee single serves for Keurig 1.0 and 2.0 brewers. There are two manufacturing lines producing Pooki’s Mahi’s 100% Kona coffee single serves: NPI (New Product Introduction) and RR (Revenue Release, also known as mass production). Larger customers require product traceability, manufacturing inspections, specific certifications and a well-documented manufacturing QA inspection process. Pooki’s Mahi’s current NPI manufacture did not meet these requirements.

The Silicon Valley startup transitioned production for its 100% Kona, 100% Maui Mokka and 100% Ka’u coffees from a traditional NPI facility to a Fair Trade certified manufacturing facility. The Fair Trade certified Keurig 2.0 compatible single serve cups will ship in May.

Pooki’s Mahi Founder/CEO Leslie Magsalay-Zeller explains, “Top resellers are part of Pooki’s Mahi’s Customer Advisory Board (CAB) that influences the product roadmap. Resellers outside North America (USA, Mexico, Canada) requested we obtain specific certifications (like Fair Trade certification) because of their end customers’ requirements. We’re delivering against our 2016 roadmap. Our roadmaps are approved one year prior.

The Silicon Valley executive says, “Today, Pooki’s Mahi is the only manufacturer distributing Kosher and Fair Trade certified 100% Kona coffee K-cups® compatible with Keurig 1.0 and 2.0 brewers. Pooki’s Mahi’s supply chain ecosystem is built on having industry leading partners who are subject matter experts, deliver consistently and prioritizes solving our challenges. Pooki’s Mahi’s customers and brand advocates expect high quality 100% Kona coffee K-cups® delivered within five days with zero cost shipping.”
