Silicon Valley, CA (PRWEB) November 29, 2016
Pooki’s Mahi, a Silicon Valley startup of private label and custom Kona coffee k cups announced today the transition of 50+ loose leaf teas to Pooki’s Mahi’s tea k cups featuring over 12 flavors individually wrapped in an environmentally friendly k cup. The single serve teas fulfill Pooki’s Mahi goal to provide sustainable, high quality Keurig teas used for existing online retail, custom and private label k cups customers.
Pooki’s Mahi’s methodology to continuously improve existing products like Kona coffee k cups before and after launches was implemented in transitioning loose-leaf tea into new Keurig tea single serves. Pooki’s Mahi spent over two years conducting multiple pilot tests with existing and new customers. Pooki’s Mahi uses pilots to assess an end-to-end system to order the new Keurig teas, improve the quality of Keurig tea fusions and k cup teas blends, and to improve existing supply chain processes.
Pooki’s Mahi loose-leaf tea collection featured over 50 teas in six unique tea families including Black Tea, Green Tea, Oolong Tea, Custom Fusions Tea and White Tea. The new Keurig tea single serves will be sold as k cup teas variety packs. Pooki’s Mahi aims to introduce over 12 unique Keurig tea flavors.
Pooki’s Mahi’s Founder and CEO Les Magsalay-Zeller explains, “Pooki’s Mahi follows strict processes to introduce new products and a framework to launch improvements to existing products in the marketplace. Pooki’s Mahi is focused on using high quality ingredients like 100% Hawaiian Kona coffee and expanding an efficient supply chain to deliver orders to customers. Feedback and inputs are incorporated into an approved cross-functional template to ideate, pilot and consistently launch new Kona coffee k cups, custom single serves, and private label k cups for private label brands. Pooki’s Mahi Keurig tea k cups are the first product line(s) using the upgraded cross-functional templates to launch new k cups.”
The Silicon Valley high tech executive continues, “Pooki’s Mahi’s mission to merge technology with an efficient supply chain to quickly launch new k cups to market ensures high quality ingredients from suppliers are used. Pooki’s Mahi follows a strict vetting process to use suppliers that are a cultural fit and have a passed a lengthy assessment.”
Pooki’s Mahi’s existing customer base who have Keurig single serve brewers requested high quality loose leaf teas in Pooki’s Mahi’s standard environmentally cups that work in 2.0 and 1.0 Keurig single serve brewers. Pooki’s Mahi’s customers did not want powder or formulated Keurig teas. Pooki’s Mahi’s Keurig 2.0 compatible tea cups are made from 99% mesh, 1% plastic with clear lidding. Pooki’s Mahi’s k cups have a small, net-like mesh wall enabling teas to expand when brewed.
Pooki’s Mani’s single serves allow customers to interact better with the teas. Customers enjoy smelling the flavors and looking at the tea ingredients prior to brewing the tea. Pooki’s Mahi’s Keurig tea k cups are not 100% compostable but are 100% recyclable. Each Keurig tea single serves are individually wrapped with brewing instructions along with ingredient lists, nutrition information, and allergy warnings so that customers can make informed buying decisions.
