Pooki’s Mahi® Adds Peaberry Nespresso Coffee Pods To Kafpresso™ Capsules

April 10, 2019


Founder/CEO Leslie Magsalay-Zeller expands Pooki’s Mahi® Kafpresso™ line of single-origin Nespresso coffee pods with Peaberry coffee capsules; coffee subscribers can now conveniently brew espresso coffee with chocolate, and mocha flavors. The Silicon Valley luxury beverage company did not confirm the official launch date.

Pooki’s Mahi Founder/CEO Leslie Magsalay-Zeller explains, “I designed and launched Pooki’s Mahi® Kafpresso™, a line of premium, recyclable coffee capsules for the espresso drinkers. Each coffee capsule makes one cup of espresso. Kafpresso™ coffee capsules are BPA free and 100% recyclable aluminum for optimum freshness. Pooki’s Mahi does not blend or flavor 100% single-origin coffees.”

“I want customers to make single-serve barista-quality espresso drinks with the push of a button from high-quality single-origin hard to find coffee beans. I wanted customers to quickly brew a single shot or a full cup with their favorite Kafpresso™ coffee capsules. Available in a range of coffee beans to suit every taste, a perfect single-serve coffee,” the Silicon Valley technology executive passionately explains.

Kafpresso™ coffee capsules, delicious coffee by Pooki’s Mahi® designed by Founder/CEO Leslie Magsalay-Zeller through Komo Kitty℠ services. Pooki’s Mahi® luxury coffee pods and espresso capsules are compatible with Nespresso OriginalLine espresso machines, 100% recyclable, have a smooth, natural coffee-house flavor and made by coffee beans sourced directly from the farmers. The initial catalog of specialty coffee is available in a limited release due to coffee bean availability (micro lots).

Founder/CEO Leslie Magsalay-Zeller actively audits Pooki’s Mahi supply chain including materials management. Pooki’s Mahi sources 100% Kona coffee through direct trade relationships. Pooki’s Mahi collaborates with coffee traders that have direct relationships with coffee growers to select single-origin coffee globally. Pooki’s Mahi chooses the highest coffee bean grade for the Kafpresso™ product line.

Founder/CEO Leslie Magsalay-Zeller and Pooki's Mahi supply base team thoroughly vets coffee growers. The criteria include but are not limited to striving to produce superior coffee, sustainable farming techniques, and providing fair and healthy conditions for their workers. Pooki’s Mahi pays market rate to encourage and support approved coffee growers. Pooki's Mahi supply base team samples coffee beans at multiple roasting locations. Once a coffee bean passes inspections, then coffees are tested against various roasters before adding it to the inventory.

Pooki’s Mahi Kafpresso Peaberry coffee capsules use 100% Arabica coffee beans. Pooki's Mahi supply base team purchases specialty coffee through direct trade relationships from coffee farmers using sustainable growing practices. Kafpresso™ Peaberry coffee capsules have strong cacao, chocolate or mocha taste. Between one to nine percent of any coffee crop will yield Peaberry coffee beans. Single-origin Peaberry coffee beans are separated from regularly sized coffee beans and sold for a premium price to their superior flavors.

Pooki’s Mahi lengthy beta period obtained feedback for new products in a new product catalog from existing customers. Feedback from customers influenced Pooki’s Mahi newly launched Kafpresso™ 100% Kona coffee Nespresso capsule designs.

Pooki’s Mahi® Kafpresso™ Peaberry coffee capsules have a medium body, bright, fruit-toned acidity. Customers confirmed Kafpresso™ Peaberry has a deep, rich flavor with notes of black currant that softens into chocolate. The new Nespresso coffee pods integrate sweet and sharp mocha aftertaste. Kafpresso™ Peaberry coffee has very delicate flavors with notes of wine followed by a very velvety, almost syrupy aftertaste. The aroma from Pooki’s Mahi medium roasted Kafpresso™ Peaberry is complex. Customers can smell sweet floral arrangement of citrus, pineapple or coconut. Pooki’s Mahi Kafpresso™ Peaberry medium roast delivers a robust flavor lacks bitterness and comparable to the Silicon Valley’s favorite 100% Kona coffee pods from the Kona KaKao™ coffee pods collection.

Coffee taste profiles are subjective. Pooki’s Mahi Kafpresso Peaberry coffee capsules always produce a different cup from regular coffee beans from the same crop. Kafpresso™ Peaberry coffee has a lighter-bodied, slightly more acidity, and a brighter cup of joe than regular coffee beans. Pooki’s Mahi new coffee capsule brews a persistent chocolate-toned hot drink. Medium-roasted Kafpresso Peaberry coffee espresso capsules feature delicate nutty aroma and creamy finish with spicy notes of black tea.

Kafpresso™ Peaberry is part of a Pooki’s Mahi® new product line launching in 2019. The cost to manufacture Pooki’s Mahi coffee pods in bio-based pods significantly increased. Firms used to make individually wrapped environmentally friendly pods failed to meet Pooki’s Mahi stringent supply chain requirements. Business operations for the firms used previously ceased to exist. Kafpresso™ Peaberry coffee capsules will be the fifth set of Nespresso coffee pods manufactured in the new FDA certified facility. Pooki’s Mahi plans on expanding Kafpresso™ with a new product line using the five different single-origin 100% Arabica coffee profiles in the Koffee KaKao™ coffee product line.

Kafpresso™ coffee capsules work in Nespresso OriginalLine single serve coffee maker. Kafpresso™ does not work in VertuoLine, U, Prodigio, Expert, or professional machines, built-in models and KitchenAid models.

  • Kafpresso™ Peaberry currently sold as a Limited Edition; very few units are available.
