    KonaRed® Raises $3.5M in New Funding, Led by Venice Brands and Spiral Sun Ventures, To Fuel Growth in 2019

    Carlsbad, Calif. (January 8, 2018) – KonaRed®, maker of premium Hawaiian coffee products, today announced the successful close of a $3.5 million round of equity and debt financing, led by Venice Brands. Other parties in the round include Spiral Sun Ventures, Decathlon Capital, and friends & family.

    “KonaRed has had an exciting year in 2018, during which we brought our coffee production in-house with a world class roasting machine and staff. This enables us to deliver the highest quality, small batch roasted Kona coffee available. On top of that, we gained distribution for our RTD cold brew coffee line in key new retailers including Sprouts, Publix, Walgreens, Meijer and Giant Food last year to help us grow sales over 25% YOY,” said Kyle Redfield, CEO. “Next year will be an even bigger year for the company, and we are gearing up to ensure we have the capital we need to support our growth.”

    In addition to bringing coffee roasting into its own state-of-the-art facility, KonaRed launched a new line of premium Kona Blend single serve cups earlier this year. The 12-count single serve cups are available in medium and dark roasts. Sales began online on KonaRed’s website and Amazon.com, but plans are in place to launch these into grocery retailers. Additionally, KonaRed recently completed a full update on the packaging design for its bagged coffee, which will also be sold into the grocery channel.

    The new round of capital will be put towards continuing to expand the KonaRed team to ensure strong cross-functional support across the company and to successfully grown and launch new products in 2019.

    KonaRed® Celebrates a Decade of Business Built On Hawaiian Cascara

    Premium Coffee Company Continues to Embrace its Commitment to Sustainability and Use of USA Grown Cascara - Coffee Fruit from Kona, Hawaii

    Carlsbad, Calif. (October 23rd, 2018) – KonaRed®, maker of premium Hawaiian coffee products, celebrates its 10-year anniversary this year. Founded in 2008, the company launched when founder Shaun Roberts discovered that the nutrient-dense fruit, known as the coffee cherry, surrounding the coffee bean was being discarded as tons of waste in the coffee harvesting process. He found a sustainable solution for the coffee cherry, more widely known as cascara, and decided to create a healthy, tasty Hawaiian coffee fruit juice. The US retail category of cascara was born!

    As KonaRed grew and expanded its portfolio, the original commitment to sustainability and Hawaiian cascara remained. KonaRed continues to exclusively use cascara sourced from Kona, known as one of the premier coffees in the world. Hawaiian cascara is an ingredient in every single KonaRed beverage, including its award-winning line of ready-to-drink cold brew coffee. Kona coffee is grown in the USA and its traceable all the way through its simple supply chain.

    “We’re excited about the new awareness and buzz around cascara that’s been happening recently,” said Kyle Redfield, CEO at KonaRed. “It’s always been the foundation of our company, and will continue to be, as we have vertical integration of our supply chain – from sourcing the coffee and cascara in Hawaii to roasting in our own facility. Pioneering this category since 2008, bigger industry players are now taking notice. We always believed in it and were committed before it was trendy.”

    KonaRed’s products that are made with Hawaiian cascara include:
    The Original Hawaiian Cascara Juice: Packed with antioxidants and with no added sugar, the sweet, refreshing juice is a hit with all ages
    Hawaiian Cascara Syrup: Infused with Hawaiian cascara and dispensed in a convenient pump, the syrup is perfect for creating cascara lattes and teas
    RTD Cold Brew Coffees: Rich, smooth, and low in sugar and calories. Flavors include original, espresso, Hawaiian vanilla, Maui mocha, and Kauai caramel
    For all of its premium products, KonaRed partners closely with local farmers on the Big Island of Hawaii to harvest coffee at peak ripeness. Traceability, sustainability, and functionality have always been key guiding pillars for how the company sources its coffee beans and cascara. Through its growing portfolio of bagged coffee, single serve cups, and cold brew coffees, KonaRed continues to strive toward the company vision of creating The Best Coffee on EarthTM and being a leader for the U.S. coffee industry.
