In 2017, Indonesia became the fourth largest mango producer in the world,
reaching 2.203.791 tons (Journalist, Occasion, 2017). East Java is the largest mango
producing area in Indonesia with 898.595 tonnes (Central Statistics Agency, Annual
Fruit and Vegetable Plant Statistics, 2017). Podang mango is a type of mango native
to Kediri Regency, East Java. According to (Kediri Agricultural Service, 2020)
Currently, the total production of Podang mango is 559.050 quintals/year. With a
high amount of production, mango podang will produce mango peels waste which
can pollute the environment. Projected coffee consumption in 2020 in Indonesia
reaches 309.771 tons (Ministry of Agriculture, 2016). Coffee consumed in Indonesia
is ground coffee which contains a lot of caffeine (56-100 mg/100 ml) (Nawrot, 2003).
If excessive coffee consumption causes caffeine addiction. The effect of caffeine
addiction is a hardening of the blood that is affected by heart attacks and strokes.
With the high waste of podang mango peels and the danger of excessive coffee
consumption, a nutritious, low caffeine, and economical product solution is needed
for the community, namely MASCO (Mango Peels Coffe) innovation of healthy
arabica coffee drinks based on Zero Waste System. The product innovation uses
Indonesian culture, which is formulated with powder from podang mango peels
extract and arabica coffee powder. Produces a distinctive taste and has a lower level
of bitterness due to the presence of antioxidants in the mango peels and is useful for
reducing the risk of diabetes, cancer, cholesterol, and coronary heart disease.
