Our Legacy

"My father started more businesses than I can count and gave me my first business cards when I was six. Throughout my life, our Unimatic kept us at the breakfast table for hours talking about business, life and people. As I became older, I realized that it was those conversations that made me who I am and that gave me an unshakable sense of confidence. I realized how invaluable his teachings were to my own success and how few entrepreneurs have been raised with this mentality. Now, getting to put the Unimatic on the tables of others, inspired me to go a step further and educate young entrepreneurs the way he educated me… over coffee."

Brave Conversations Over Coffee

We believe that brave conversation is what will allow us to overcome some of the most complex and divisive issues that we face today. Sharing ourselves and truly understanding others is the next necessary evolution in our culture and holds the key to our path forward. The Unimatic was always in the center of our table, as if she was "hosting" our conversations. Now, her legacy is to inspire and "host" yours. Learn more.

Legacy Out Loud

Unimatic University

We're building an army, fueled by great coffee! Students want to learn where they fit into the world and how to use their voice impactfully, so we've taken a module of Legacy Out Loud's curriculum and built an experiential program that teaches communication blended with real world experience, while spreading our coffee far and wide!

The Wagner Fund

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
