Dave MacKinnon is the proud Owner / Operator of the East Coast Coffee Company. He started with his own Ecologically friendly, Kosher, Biodegradable, 100% Organic and Fair Trade coffees. Once he started distributing his own blend, he saw opportunities. He realized that many wholesale customers were paying far more for their coffee than necessary. That's when he decided to expand into distribution of National Bestselling K-Cup®, and RealCup® products.

Dave still deals with many accounts personally, because he likes to know that our Retail and Wholesale customers are getting the best in customer service and support. We, here at the East Coast Coffee Company believe that great tasting coffee is second only to convenience, and great customer service.

Several studies have also shown that coffee drinkers are up to 65% less likely to get Alzheimer’s Disease, which is a leading cause of dementia. People who drink four cups a day are 80% less likely to develop cirrhosis of the liver. Caffeine improves your performance when working out by increasing your levels of adrenaline. This releases fatty acids from fat tissues and offers better physical performance.
