How one phone call can change everything!

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?

Maternal energy

The owner of Unimatic #260 was at a 747 Club dinner party in Manhattan last month and when the topic of conversation turned to compassion, empathy and all that is encompassed by maternal energy she was inspired.

What the Unimatic family is saying…

"The Unimatic changed my life. I somehow found an extra 20 minutes in my morning to perk my coffee and as a result, I’m more grounded, creative, productive and happy. The Unimatic is my daily miracle."

- Greg Dell'Aquila, President, Mission 50 Workspaces

"It’s the coolest coffee pot in the world."

- Trevor Owens, Entrepreneur and Author

"Complimenting the Unimatic is like complimenting a Rolls Royce. You just don't. It's beyond compliments. You don't say, 'Nice Rolls Royce' - the Unimatic is the classic."

- DJ Cynthia Cherish, Heritage Radio
