Founder/CEO Leslie Magsalay-Zeller lands national grocery chain for Pooki’s Mahi®, Matcha Matcha Man® tea capsules, and Kafpresso™ coffee pods.

I built existing supply chain to support a just-in-time (JIT) manufacturing model enabling Pooki’s Mahi to control costs, manage inventory turns effectively, and to offer two-day shipping to Lower 48 states, Hawaii and Alaska. Pooki’s Mahi owns supply chain, logistics, sourcing, and fulfillment.

Silicon Valley startup Pooki’s Mahi® announced today it introduced Kafpresso™ KrakaMoka™ coffee capsules designed by Founder/CEO Leslie Magsalay-Zeller allowing Nespresso® espresso drinkers to explore 100% single-origin coffee with cacao, mocha tastes.

Pooki’s Mahi Founder/CEO Leslie Magsalay-Zeller explains, “The large customers headquartered in the US that previously rejected Pooki’s Mahi in 2013 want Pooki’s Mahi product catalog. Pooki’s Mahi luxury Kona coffee pods and Matcha Matcha Man® tea capsules were previously rejected. Several large global customers didn’t want to deal with start-ups or a Founder/CEO that never launched consumer products goods (CPG). I also learned very quickly. Large customers asked for a 40% discount to merchandise, fulfill and distribute Pooki’s Mahi products. Executives and decision makers at large customers were not technologists. Decisions to carry or not carry Pooki’s Mahi Kona coffee pods were made on opinions on packaging design, margins, and the amount of work needed to keep me from accessing big data sets. For Pooki’s Mahi Matcha Matcha Man® tea capsules, the decision was based on how much margins I was willing to lose. I decided to focus on growing Pooki’s Mahi top line revenue from existing customers and online retailers whose primary focus was selling online.”

“Pooki’s Mahi owns the supply chain; we manufacture, create and distribute luxury coffee pods and tea capsules. Converting new customers online is much easier for Pooki’s Mahi because we know our products, customer profiles that convert and have a baseline understanding of what it takes to convert new customers into repeat customers. I analyze big datasets looking for buying patterns, zip codes, interests, education, disposable income, product discovery journey in Pooki’s Mahi demographic market areas. Big data analysis and customer feedback drive Pooki’s Mahi roadmap. I'm very familiar with Pooki’s Mahi customer’s journey because I analyze big data sets such as demographic market areas, customer profiles and the customer’s path to discovering Pooki’s Mahi brands - Pooki’s Mahi, Matcha Matcha Man, Kafpresso™ Nespresso coffee pods, or Komo Kitty℠ private label services,” says the Silicon Valley technology executive.

“I turned a 2018 supply chain FUBAR into an opportunity to reset Pooki’s Mahi operations with a Just In Time (JIT) supply chain model using existing processes, systems and protected IP I've developed. I built Pooki’s Mahi existing supply chain to support a just-in-time (JIT) manufacturing model enabling the company to control costs, manage inventory turns effectively, and to offer fresh roasted products to existing customers consistently. I manage Pooki’s Mahi® supply chain including sourcing raw goods. Identifying suppliers that passed Pooki’s Mahi stringent materials requirements was one of the biggest hurdles. I tri-source Pooki’s Mahi materials to avoid potential line-down issues. Pooki’s Mahi Kafpresso™ line of Nespresso® coffee pods are produced at an FDA certified manufacturing facility capable of producing millions of espresso coffee pods. Much easier for Pooki’s Mahi to introduce new products when primary, secondary and back-up suppliers consistently deliver materials under Pooki’s Mahi specifications,” explains Founder/CEO Leslie Magsalay-Zeller

The Silicon Valley executive explains, “I approved Pooki’s Mahi Kona Kafpresso™ as a new product in 2017 using an FDA certified manufacturing facility capable of producing millions of Nespresso® pods with an initial pilot launch date in 2018. Pooki’s Mahi® actively manages the supply chain, sources raw goods, and is requires operations to work in a Just In Time (JIT) model. Kafpresso™ Kona Nespresso coffee pods are the first single-origin espresso coffee capsule in Pooki’s Mahi new Kafpresso™ product line. Pooki’s Mahi Kafpresso™ product roadmap is full of new single-origin coffee, and Matcha Matcha Man® tea pods. Kafpresso™ capsules will launch throughout 2019 as part of Pooki’s Mahi Komo Kitty℠ Project.”

Pooki’s Mahi Founder/CEO Leslie Magsalay-Zeller designed Kafpresso™ KrakaMoka™ coffee capsules with software developers, product and systems architects in mind. The Silicon Valley technology exec was inspired by her time at Fortune 500 companies leading product launch teams. Conference rooms were a melting pot of colliding functions that rarely agreed to a product roadmap. Each functional area had their ideas for product launches.

Corporate break rooms served as a creative gateway, a mouthpiece for product development or launch executives. Wild, rich theories were challenged by cross-functional team members while drinking a vibrant, strong cup of coffee. Corporate cafeterias were the home for arts, music, and experimentation. The fusion of cultures from different functions and expressions by tastemakers made working at a Silicon Valley corporation exciting, wild, sophisticated and elegant. Pooki’s Mahi Founder/CEO Leslie Magalay-Zeller’s former employees, peers and executives were involved in music. Several employees were singers. Most colleagues had their band or were DJ’s at popular venues.

Founder/CEO Leslie Magsalay-Zeller created Pooki’s Mahi Kafpresso™ KrakaMoka™ for the espresso drinkers. KrakaMoka™ has an elegant and delicate coffee profile suited for passionate tastemakers. Kafpresso™ coffee capsules is a product line of Nespresso coffee pods for use in with OriginalLine single serve coffee makers. The Silicon Valley executive qualified FDA certified manufacturing facilities capable of producing Kafpresso™ capsules in 2018. New operations locations have exceeded Pooki’s Mahi strict supply chain management requirements. Founder/CEO Leslie Magsalay-Zeller is quick to terminate relationships with underperforming firms. Pooki’s Mahi uses a scorecard and “Pay For Performance” to measure operations.

The Silicon Valley executive is very involved in designing taste profiles for Pooki’s Mahi Kafpresso coffee pods. A team of licensed Q-Graders and sensory panel created taste profiles as defined by Pooki’s Mahi Founder/CEO specs. Licensed Q-Graders uses Specialty Coffee Association cupping protocols to measure the quality of coffee and extraction levels. Nutrition information, California Prop 65 and product information for Kafpresso™ KrakaMoka™ are designed onto the packaging label.

Pooki’s Mahi Kafpresso KrakaMoka coffee is intense, with black and oriental notes. KrakaMoka is best consumed without adding sugar or milk. The complex KrakaMoka™ coffee has wild and floral notes. Few of Pooki’s Mahi customers experienced a strong exotic coffee with a creamy, velvety texture. The velvet texture cuts through milk. Kafpresso™ KrakaMoka™ coffee capsules are decadently aromatic, and easy on the tongue. Pooki’s Mahi VIP customers have reported tasting warm notes of fruit jam, and orange blossom flowers.

Founder/CEO Leslie Magsalay-Zeller sourced single-origin coffee beans through direct trade relationships. Good single-origin coffee beans will create the perfect crema. Perfect crema is the signature foam that rests on top of a freshly pulled shot of espresso. The presence of an ideal crema indicates a high-quality, well-ground coffee and a clean manufacturing line. Perfect crema from Pooki’s Mahi Kafpresso coffee capsules gives KrakaMoka™ a fuller flavor, and more prolonged aftertaste than drip coffee or traditional pods for single serve coffee makers. Pooki’s Mahi uses a Just-In-Time (JIT) supply chain process to manufacture Kafpresso capsules. The JIT manufacturing process ensures Pooki’s Mahi coffee subscribers, and VIP customers receive fresh roasted KrakaMoka espresso from green coffee beans.

Kafpresso KrakaMoka will be available in limited quantities to Pooki’s Mahi existing coffee subscribers, and VIP distributors resellers. Fulfillment for Kafpresso KrakaMoka will be handled out of Pooki’s Mahi California headquarters or operations facilities.

Pooki’s Mahi VIP customers like active coffee subscribers should receive a complimentary shipment of Kafpresso™ KrakaMoka™ in 2019. Founder/CEO Leslie Magsalay-Zeller allocated units to a small number of approved resellers. Select retailers like international grocery chains, hotels, and global marketplaces will begin shipping KrakaMoka™ espresso capsules in 2018.
