About Teeccino Coffee

Many creative people find inspiration through their dreams. For dreams to become reality however, a healthy amount of experience and energy must be part of the mix. With over 20 years in the herb tea industry, Caroline MacDougall, the founder of Teeccino, had formulated a wide variety of herb-based beverages for numerous industry manufacturers. She began her career as a Vice President of Celestial Seasonings in the 1970's and over the next 15 years developed herbal products for John Wagners & Sons, Yogi Tea Company, Nature's Herbs, Fmali Herb Company, Uncle Lee's Teas and Natural Nectar. In the fall of 1993, Caroline MacDougall was busy developing herbal teas for the new Republic of Tea line. One morning she awoke to hear herself say, "The next product I want to develop is a caffeine-free cappuccino and the name of the product will be Teeccino!"

From the Cradle of the Mediterranean...

During her career as an herbal tea designer, Caroline had created a wide variety of teas, but one gap remained. Nowhere in the tea world is there a caffeine-free match for robust, roasted coffee. Teeccino was created to capture that unmistakable, rich Mediterranean flavor.

While creating Teeccino, Caroline realized that all the ingredients she was using in the formula were originally from the Mediterranean and part of the healthy Mediterranean diet for centuries. She envisioned the package labels with a different Mediterranean image for each flavor.

As a tea drinker becoming initiated into the diverse world of coffee brewing, Caroline became intrigued with all the Mediterranean coffee brewing methods including drip coffee makers, the French press pot and the Italian stove-top espresso maker. She expanded her original concept from making herbal cappuccinos in espresso machines to developing Teeccino to drip or brew just like coffee.

By the summer of 1994, Caroline began designing the Teeccino labels. Gina Amador, the designer of The Republic of Tea's labels, took Caroline's concepts and developed the luggage tag images from the Mediterranean using a different country and shape for each flavor. Jennifer Ewing, a San Francisco artist, produced original paintings for each Mediterranean scene.
