SAN FRANCISCO, U.S. — Silicon Valley startup Pooki’s Mahi announced today it relaunches decaffeinated 100% Kona coffee in recyclable pods compatible with 1.0 and 2.0 single serve coffee makers from sustainable mesh capsules delivering non-caffeinated Kona coffee to existing customers.
Pooki’s Mahi Founder/CEO Leslie Magsalay-Zeller explains, “Pooki’s Mahi decaffeinated Kona coffee in 100% recyclable pods launched mid-2014. I transitioned Kona coffee pods product line into individually wrapped sustainable mesh pods per customers’ feedback. Pooki’s Mahi passes price increases for shipping, raw materials, and processing fees to customers.
Customers want a bold cup of decaffeinated 100% Kona coffee without paying extra. I kicked off Pooki’s Mahi MeowHattan Project to overhaul operations. Pooki’s Mahi decaffeinated Kona coffee in 100% recyclable pods will be available to customers in 2018.”
The Silicon Valley high tech executive continues, “Pooki’s Mahi® actively manages the supply chain, sources raw goods, and requires operations to work in a Just In Time (JIT) model. Fast inventory turns to enable Pooki’s Mahi more flexibility with product launches, meets deadlines quickly and keeps Kona coffee pods, Matcha Matcha Man® tea pods, and Kona Kafpresso™ capsules fresh. I refuse to give Pooki’s Mahi manufacturing business to firms that lack supply chain processes supporting a technology roadmap, poor supply chain management and is unable to manage inventory for raw goods; these manufacturing firms will never satisfy Pooki’s Mahi requirements, and will always provide lip service (over promise, under deliver). I will not consider firms unable to provide Pooki’s Mahi their company’s certificate of insurance, lacks technology platform to support established supply chain processes, or has less than two decades of coffee roasting and packaging experience.”
Pooki’s Mahi supply chain headquarters is in California. The Silicon Valley firm kicked off the MeowHattan Project to overhaul operations to support global growth. Pooki’s Mahi consolidated operations and supply chain to the West Coast. Pooki’s Mahi terminated firms used in 2018 engaged in cyber-criminal activities, and egregious business conduct resulting in irreparable harm.
Pooki’s Mahi selected new manufacturing facilities after a very lengthy review since 2012. The state of the art facilities passed Pooki’s Mahi Founder/CEO prolonged supply chain capability due diligence. Pod manufacturing facilities are registered, approved, and FDA certified.
The cost to produce sustainable 100% Kona coffee pods for Pooki’s Mahi significantly increased. Firms used to create raw materials and manufacture individually wrapped mesh pods failed to meet Pooki’s Mahi stringent supply chain metrics, lost inventory, and business operations ceased to exist. Pooki’s Mahi FDA certified manufacturing facilities would pass savings to manufacture recyclable pods to existing customers. Pooki’s Mahi manufacturing facilities use licensed Q-Graders and a sensory panel to finalize quality of each capsule, Kona coffee roast profile and finalize the bill of material specs. Nutrition information, California Prop 65 and product information are designed onto Pooki’s Mahi ship-ready packaging.
Leslie Magsalay-Zeller designed decaffeinated 100% Kona coffee pods to meet existing customers’ requirements. Each decaffeinated Kona coffee pods are nitrogen flushed, formed with a high oxygen barrier, and compatible with coffee makers using 1.0 and 2.0 single serve brewing technologies.
