Hawaii is the only state in the US that grows, cultivate and sell coffee plants, coffee green beans and coffee commercially. On the Big Island the Coffee Arabica (coffee plant) is cultivated on the slopes of Hualalai and Mauna Loa in the Kona Districts. Kona coffee is one of the most expensive coffees in the world. Coffee is grown on several islands: Big Island, Kauai, Maui, Oahu and Molokai. Many customers are most familiar with Kona coffee which is grown on the Big Island, Hawaii. Customers have started to taste other Hawaiian coffees because they are receiving recognition like coffees from Kau, Big Island (called Kau coffee) and Maui (named Maui Mokka coffee).
Popular Hawaiian Flavors
Very few native plants that grow in Hawaii are native to Hawaii. Most of the ingredients and animals were introduced to the Hawaiian islands by settlers and immigrants. The consistent temperature provides Hawaii an almost year-round growing season. Popular Hawaiian flavors include coconut, pineapple, banana, mango, papaya, passion fruit, lychee, citrus lemons, dragonfruit, guava, vanilla, macadamia and tropical berries.
Not all tropical Hawaiian flavors will taste good as a Kona coffee beverage. We offer Kona coffee flavors our repeat customers have indicated they’ll buy consistently from Pooki’s Mahi.
Pooki’s Mahi Kona coffee flavors collection include:
We use our high tech experiences to conduct lengthy pilot tests. A pilot test is an end-to-end test assessing our product against customer requirements. Some of the tests include ease of orderability, taste profile, ease of use, ease of understanding the product information on the package.
Pooki’s Mahi follows strict product labeling requirements. We list the percentage of the Kona coffee beans as part of the product name, ingredients list and on the product page. Hawaii’s Department of Agriculture requires manufactures to state the percentage of the Kona coffee used per the current law.
We monitor our entire supply chain to ensure suppliers adhere to our strictness. For example, Pooki’s Mahi will not work with manufacturers who refuse to provide the list of companies that allegedly sell Kona coffee pods single serve cups certified as Kona coffee. We document and report to the appropriate authorities after we conduct our own assessment(s). Customers have the right know where their Hawaiian coffee is harvested, roasted and packaged.
100% Kona Coffee vs. Kona Coffee Blend
Coffee beans harvested from Kona, roasted and packaged into the final retail selling unit are 100% Kona coffee certified. The final roasted batch is no longer considered 100% Kona once any Kona coffee bean is mixed with coffee beans from another region (like South America, Central America, Africa). The end product is a 10% Kona Coffee Blend and not 100% Kona coffee. The 10% indicates the total percentage of Kona coffee beans used in the retail selling unit.
