For us, thinking and praying for those impacted by Harvey and Irma brought back so many memories of our own experience with Hurricane Sandy - that's been the reason for our silence here. It all just hit close to home, really close.
This morning, however, I received a phone call. A man's voice said "hi, is this Elisabeth with Caffe Unimatic? I saw you on Frankie Cooks and love the story of your business, your coffee and everything it stands for. I just received my Unimatic and made my first pot of coffee and in your note, you said to call you with anything I needed... and I am calling because I need to thank you. I need to thank you because I love everything about Unimatic #269 and the coffee I just brewed. I know it will make my morning for years to come, so thank you for that and for doing what you do." Dearest Kevin, words can't describe what you just did for me... I needed this reminder and especially during a time when so much of our country is going through a hard time, I needed to be reminded that what we are doing is inspiring people to linger at the table just a little longer with loved ones and drink in the moments that truly matter. I remember how eye opening it was for me during the aftermath of Sandy, that people always showed up during the cleanup with coffee in hand. It's what they brought as a symbol of comfort and it made me see just how important something as simple as coffee really is. It's a talisman, a symbol of the little moments that matter most. Thank you Kevin, for reminding us that we are putting more comfort into the world than we realize.
[Also, big thank you to Frankie for bringing us into your world and helping us spread our story and mission. You inspire us we will always support anything you're a part of!]
