About Us

In 1996, we started our little company part time out of a garage in North Burlington, Ontario. Since then, we have grown from one employee with one truck to over 40 employees in retail, ecommerce, distribution and coffee service. With in house service and repair, and a state of the art website serving all of Canada - we are your number one source for coffee and espresso brewing gear and coffee!

We have a passion for what we do and pride ourselves on being honest, fair, and dealing with integrity. This has rewarded our company with numerous National, Regional, and Local service awards making ECS Coffee the gold standard for others to follow.

We respect your privacy, we respect your time and we respect your pocketbook. We want you to become a long time customer... and for those of you who live in Southern Ontario, you can come by and see us for a coffee.

To all of you, from all of us at thank you! And by the way, thanks for shopping Canadian!

Family owned and operated, our company has come a long way!


It began in a garage in Burlington Ontario.

With a full time job and a baby at home, Neil Madden started a vending machine business out of his garage part time in 1996. After work, he would go out to fill his vending machines everyday.

Taking Over Coffee Retail

As our Coffee retail an e-commerce business grew added four locations in one year and over 70 employees. We were recognized as one of Canada's Fastest growing companies by PROFIT magazine in 2013, and again in 2014.

With the popularity of single serve coffee, we became known as THE store for Keurig K-Cups and Tassimo. Our customers loved our Mix & Match K-Cup boxes (which is still offered at our retail stores today!), and ECS Coffee was described as being a candy store for coffee lovers.

Refocusing our Business

We acquired a distribution business, refocussed on our core coffee business and added in an in house service centre for retail and commercial coffee equipment. We reimagined our retail business and realigned with a new distribution centre.

We expanded our coffee catalogue to not only focus on the coffee, but on everything you would need to create an amazing and enjoyable coffee experience - from espresso machines & specialty beans to single serve coffee makers and k-cups®.
