Hi - We're the Desjardins!

The Family Behind MAKKER

We believe you deserve a better cup of coffee. Period. Better quality, better price, and better for our planet. That’s why we created MAKKER – the most convenient, affordable, and eco-friendly way to make a quality single-serve cup of coffee. Derived from the Dutch word for “companion”, MAKKER was designed to be the essential companion for brewing your perfect cup.

Every great cup of coffee starts with the first drip. This is ours. MAKKER is just the beginning so stay tuned! The single-serve revolution is brewing…
