Make a Stovetop Statement


Turning a daily routine into a morning ritual since 1962.
On a cold winter morning in 2011, Elisabeth Cardiello became an owner, turning a humble discovery into a coffee company. Paying tribute to her father's legacy, her TEDx Talk details the whimsical story of how Caffè Unimatic came to be. Play TED Talk

Conceived in Brooklyn, Born in Italy

An upgrade from the standard percolator, the Unimatic drip-percolator uses a rare brewing technique. Specially designed to create the perfect cup of coffee, it raises the bar when it comes to American coffee standards. As she brews, the aroma of fresh, bold coffee fills the room and makes a house, a home. The Unimatic was conceived and designed in Brooklyn, then made in Italy in 1962.

The Last of Her Kind

Like a piece of art, the Unimatic vintage coffee pot has an iconic look and becomes more valuable over time. As the last originals in the world, her price will increase as fewer and fewer originals are available.

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, family member of Unimatic #41

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

- Trevor, family member of Unimatic #50

"Thank you so much, I happened to see the program on Netflix called Coffee for All. As you refer to my net coffee pot as a "her" she will be appropriately named "Grace" after my grandmother who gave me my first percolator coffee pot at the age of 18. Now as I brew coffee in the mornings I will think of my grandparents more often."

- Joe, family member of Unimatic #392

"I am truly happy with the Unimatic. A perfect cup of coffee and the story that goes with it even makes it more enjoyable."

- David, family member of Unimatic #418

Thank you dearest Elisabeth for being the much needed catalyst for change. For sharing your remedy for our home life that has been suspended after much trial and trauma. We laughed, shared, marveled and lingered the table discussing your father’s creation. We spent time together as a family, enjoying the newness of what is usually the mundane. Creating your shared legacy... a cup of coffee. The Unimatic made our house a home... long gone are the quick days of the Keurig or nearest coffee shop. We look forward to spending tomorrow morning with Brunetta.

- Monica, family member of Unimatic #329
