Caroline MacDougall

Internationally sought-after herbal coffee and beverage alchemist Caroline MacDougall has spent over 30 years formulating herbal beverages for industry leaders such as Republic of Tea, Yogi Teas and others. She began her career developing worldwide sources importing herbs for Celestial Seasonings, and played a part in the first introduction of herbal teas to American supermarkets. Following in the footsteps of her great grandmother, Alice Foote MacDougall, a single mother entrepreneur who began a coffee roasting business which grew into gourmet coffee shops in the early 1900's, the rise of Carolines brewable coffee alternative number one in recent years started with an ironic inspiration from a dream to help people quit coffee with a brewable, full-bodied herbal alternative. She launched Teeccino caffeine-free herbal coffee to the natural and specialty food markets in 1995.
