Coffee fruit beverage pioneer KonaRed to move into powdered beverage pods
Hawaii-based coffee fruit beverage maker KonaRed has teamed up with at-home carbonation expert Sparkling Drink Systems International (SDS) to develop a line of powdered beverage pods.

The pods will be exclusively for use with Viberation, SDS' new At-Home Carbonation appliances​, which don’t require CO2 cylinders.

The KonaRed / Viberation co-branded beverage range is expected to include original Hawaiian CoffeeBerry, Organic Green Tea and Coconut Water flavor pods and be available in the United States in late 2014.
