Need a high-end pair of skis? Or household cleaning products made from all-natural ingredients? How about an overhead crane to build a bridge? Those products, and hundreds more, are being produced right here in the Inland Northwest.

Each week, “Good Morning Northwest” anchor Derek Deis takes you behind the scenes of a locally-owned company that makes interesting, unusual, or cutting-edge products. These companies are creating jobs and helping our local economy grow. If you have a “Made in the Northwest” story suggestions, contact Derek at or at Derek Deis’ Facebook page.

Made in the Northwest: FreshPod

Its aim is to deliver coffee at its absolute peak of freshness. FreshPod, a division of Coffee Crafters, will ship k-cups to your door within 48 hours of roasting the coffee. Derek Deis paid a visit to the Post Falls company for this edition of Made in the Northwest.

Made in the Northwest: Cheez

It's believed to be the first non-dairy, plant-based alternative cheese product to be made and sold here in Spokane. Cheez got its start in Glorious Artisan Bakery and can now be found in several local specialty stores. Derek Deis has the delicious details in this edition of Made in the Northwest.
