San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 10, 2016
Silicon Valley startup Pooki’s Mahi of 100% Kona coffee k-cups, Hawaiian coffee k-cups and custom k-cups announced today it improved and selected flavorful teas in its Keurig tea k-cup variety pack prior to launching the new line of k cup teas to select online retailers.
Pooki’s Mahi conducts several pilots (end-to-end product tests) with existing customers. The goal is to improve the overall tea k-cup product line and to hand select award-winning flavorful loose-leaf teas already in pyramid tea bag form for Pooki’s Mahi’s Keurig tea k-cup variety packs. Pooki’s Mahi’s tea k-cup variety pack is focused on tropical flavors infused with high quality oolong teas, black teas and green teas.
Pooki’s Mahi’s Founder/CEO Les Magsalay-Zeller explains, “Pooki’s Mahi completed the first pilot to prune the number of k cups tea flavors. Pooki’s Mahi’s initial tea catalogue contained up to 30 different flavors across five to six tea varieties. Existing customers help drive Pooki’s Mahi’s product launches. Pooki’s Mahi’s customers requested a variety of k cup teas, decaffeinated tea k cups and oolong tea k cups.”
The Silicon Valley entrepreneur says, “Pooki’s Mahi’s very lengthy pilot process tests k-cup manufacturers capabilities to consistently produce custom k-cups using approved bill of material components, sustainable single serve cups, food grade pouches and an ecommerce approved ship-ready box. Pooki’s Mahi’s owns and manages all suppliers’ relationships. K-cup manufacturers produce 100% Kona coffee k-cups and tea k-cups per Pooki’s Mahi’s specifications and graded against a strict First Article Inspection (FAI) process. Pooki’s Mahi’s second pilot will prune and finalize the number of tea k cups flavors launching into several variety packs.“
Pooki’s Mahi has a very lengthy process to assess suppliers and vendors to support the tea k-cups product line. Immediate return on investment (ROI), consistent delivery and how easy Pooki’s Mahi’s distributors’ fulfillment centers receive products like Pooki’s Mahi’s 100% Kona coffee k-cups are important. Mistakes, slowing down Pooki’s Mahi’s operations or supply chain teams and hyper-aggressive requests to land bigger orders are not favorable to supplier(s) or k-cup manufacturer(s).
Pooki’s Mahi’s Keurig tea k-cup variety packs works in single serve 1.0 and Keurig 2.0 brewers. The initial tea k-cups variety pack will focus on oolong tea k cups and decaffeinated tea k-cups. Pooki’s Mahi’s oolong tea k-cups will combine tropical and citrus flavors with traditional sweet oolong teas.
