Unimatic University

We're building an army - fueled by great coffee!

Too often, we hear that the internships and placements you get while in school don't challenge the hungry student that humbly shows up everyday, hoping for the chance to earn the responsibility to make an impact. Whereas we see value in learning to cultivate a positive attitude and smile through the grunt work, we also know that you want to learn something about where you fit into the world. It is with this understanding that we at Caffè Unimatic are excited to invite you to consider an experiment, an opportunity to learn a skill (arguably the most valuable and transferable of all skills) with us through the Unimatic University Fellowship Program. The skill you learn is communication, particularly the segment that has to do with sales - not the icky kind, rather the kind that helps you better read people, situations and the energy in a room, the kind that helps you strengthen your inner intuition, the kind that radiates with integrity, enthusiasm and honor, that exists in service to others, committed to leaving people better than you found them, the kind that makes all sorts of relationships - personal, professional and even the one you have with yourself - better.




What is the opportunity?

We are gathering a cohort of students and giving you a way to engage with, take action on and hence, learn this skillset using our coffee as the product whose story you get to make your own and put into the world. It doesn't matter how much you sell, it matters that you consistently show up. This is one of those opportunities where you get out what you put in and we can't wait to see you go!

Why is this skill important?

No matter what type of career you hope to pursue, this is a skill that will never become obsolete and that no one can take away from you. Once you have it, it's your edge. We believe that you should enter the real world knowing this above all else. We also believe that this skill, i.e. engaging in the practice of communicating value and creating enthusiasm in others around the object, idea, issue of your choice, is the foundation of the unshakable confidence you need in this world.

What do I get out of it?

Since this is a fellowship, it's half course and half real word experience. By the end of the program, you'll have taken a product and made the story your own. You'll have honed a way to introduce yourself, share who you are, position yourself and the story you want to tell to anyone at anytime. You'll have a unique story to share and will have found a way to communicate that feels best for you. You'll belong to a team, a family of like-minded peers who are headed in your same direction. You'll have learned how the human brain functions, watched, listened and developed assertions about how people make decisions and how you feel most comfortable leading. You'll have closed sales and have the embodied sense of what that feels like (which is arguably, priceless). And most of all, you'll have found your voice, shared generously and earned the confidence that comes from seeing just how far you can go.

Who teaches the course?

This course is adapted from Legacy Out Loud's confidence building methodology and will be personally run by the Founder and Owner of Caffe Unimatic, Elisabeth Cardiello. She's a two time TEDx speaker and entrepreneur who has been featured by NBC, AMEX Open, Forbes and Worldwide Business with Kathy Ireland.

When does the next round start and how do I join?

We are currently accepting applications for the Summer semester. You can find the application here. It will be open through May 20th, but since Elisabeth will be reading through applications and accepting participants on a rolling basis, we urge you to apply ASAP, as it has filled quickly.

What is the structure of the course?

We will begin the semester in June and run for roughly 6 weeks. The structure is simple and allows the flexibility of your individual schedule: you'll receive a task every Monday, have a call with your team, report your progress throughout and have access to the team and Elisabeth throughout. 

Do I need to be in NYC?

Nope, all "meetings" and learning will be virtual, so you can be anywhere in the world as long as you have an internet connection.

What if I already have a job, internship, leadership role on campus or play a sport?

If you have a lot going on, that's just fine - and almost preferable! The more people you are exposed to, the better - it'll give you something to talk about with colleagues, a community to belong to, something to stretch you and get you thinking more deeply while out in the real world and most of all, prove how much of a rock star you are - holding down multiple leadership roles at once!

I really want to join, but am nervous about how much time I have. What do I do?

We can't tell you what to do, but we can share that we made this course flexible for that reason. As with most things worth doing - you get out what you put in, so if you choose to put in the time, you will earn skills that you will have for a lifetime and that you will put to use in the workplace and far beyond. There's no rigid structure that needs to "work with your schedule" - we did that on purpose. We want you to be able to fit this in anytime, all the time. Finding the time, being a self starter and committing to something is part of the learning journey.

This is a course so do I need to pay anything to take it?

Yes, there is a small cost, because we've learned that when you invest in something, you take it much more seriously. That being said, we earn nothing from the coffee you sell and the commissions you earn can actually end up paying for your investment.

Anything else I should know?

We work best with people who are hungry, humble and happy; people who are driven and committed, people who are ready and willing to try, fail, learn and try again, and people who don't complain but rather zoom out, gain perspective, then zoom back in and create a better way forward. We hope you'll consider it.



A Note from our Founder:

Elisabeth Cardiello"This company changed me. I've learned so much from meeting people and getting to share this story with them. Having something so different to add to the conversation and something that I felt like I belonged to made all the difference and gave me a passion that is yet unmatched in my life. Building the methodology of Legacy Out Loud and getting to use a piece of it with Unimatic University means the world. We are so excited to use what we've learned about people, brain science, leadership and communication to give this confidence to the leaders and entrepreneurs of tomorrow." -Elisabeth L. Cardiello

What the Unimatic family is saying…

When my husband and I finally received and opened the box with the Unimatic inside and I saw your personalized note, it brought tears to my eyes to know that we actually had in our hands part of your family's history. Thank you for letting us be a part of it!!

- Terry, family member of Unimatic #288

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

"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

Coffee has this magic of uniting people. In a world so digital, individualistic, I believe Elisabeth does an extra-ordinary job to reconnect the people we love the most. I could not fail remember the excitement and the happiness of receiving in NYC my Unimatic pot directly from the hands of my dear friend Elisabeth. An unforgettable day!

- Zeca, family member of Unimatic #443

I received this Unimatic as a gift yesterday and I am just tickled! The coffee is amazing and so very worth the wait. I love your story; keep on doing what you are doing - we all need an incentive to slow down.

- Hope, family member of Unimatic #526

I'm not functional until I've had my coffee, so I love coming out to the kitchen and seeing her on the stove! We now have our brave conversations, as we always have, with music playing in the background and the most delicious coffee we've ever tasted.

- Peg, family member of Unimatic #534

I love my Unimatic coffee pot. I love the fragrance of fresh perked coffee. it reminds me of the mornings when my grandmother made coffee. When I read about the Unimatic coffee pot I just had to have it. The aroma of fresh perked coffee in my apartment is wonderful and relaxing. The coffee that I ordered with it is also delicious. I keep my coffee pot on the stove, ready for the next day.!!

- Luisa, family member of Unimatic #603

We are so very happy for the Unimatic that we received yesterday :) This morning my wife bicycled to the local bakery for some croissants, meanwhile I cleaned the Unimatic and prepared for our morning coffee :) The coffee was outstanding and we simply love the Unimatic! We had a good long chat and enjoyed our coffee and croissant outside.

- Sturla, family member of Unimatic #625

I have to say I was emotional when I opened the box and unwrapped the Unimatic. My love of coffee comes from my Mom and Neapolitan grandmother. My fondest memories were in the summer and my parents liked to sit outside in the backyard talking after dinner and I would make coffee for all using that coffee pot. My Italian grandma loved afternoon coffee with anisette, and having coffee when visiting was a time to gather and chat. I hope I can persuade my daughter to slow down and enjoy a cup of Caffè Unimatic with me, she does love coffee.

- Madeleine, family member of Unimatic #630

My husband and I tried the San Pietro Brunetta and it was love at first sip and absolutely the best coffee that we have ever tasted. We can't wait for more...

- Christine, family member

Your Brunetta blend is a delight to the pallet! It is truly a different taste than an American coffee blend...roasting slow makes a better cup using the Unimatic in my opinion. Having the Unimatic with the Brunetta blend has made our mornings more pleasurable than ever....the coffee is rich with flavor as well as the conversation it stimulates while we slowly drink the pot. Thank you for creating the environment for an awesome morning to take place!

- Kimberly, family member of Unimatic #644

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and making coffee in my new Caffè Unimatic pot is the highlight of my meal-making ritual. Lingering over that mug of coffee while I work at my computer seems to “ground” me for the day. So far, I’ve only tried your San Pietro Brunetta blend (which I ❤️!) but I look forward to enjoying your Roma Bionda and Milano Mora blends, too. The big question is, is it ok to have more than one favorite?!

- Maria, family member of Unimatic #647

First of all I love, love my Unimatic! I first saw you on the Netflix documentary and fell in love with your story. I have a very similar coffee connection with my grandparents and I started drinking coffee with my grandma when I was about 5. I love the connection you make with your customers! I ordered my Unimatic and had it delivered to my best friends house to ensure it’s safe arrival. We seasoned it, made a couple of pots and tried different coffees with it. By the time we were done my friends ordered one for themselves!

- Ami, family member of Unimatic #649

I am blown away but honestly my intuition was right and I am not surprised. All the coffees are divine, and the coffee pot makes breathtaking brews.

- Alex, family member of Unimatic #656

I have never tasted or smelled coffee like this before. Even in Italy, I never had such an amazing cup of coffee as this one. Until now, my best cup ever was at Glile in Florence and they have been making coffee for hundreds of years. :+) I’ve been roasting my own coffee for 10 years as I couldn’t find a decent coffee. Now I am questioning my hard earn roasting skills!

- Jeff, family member of Unimatic #670

My wife & I have been thoroughly enjoying our Unimatic percolator. We never thought we would revert back to a method of coffee-making that seemed outdated, but we must say the taste of the coffee from the Unimatic is much smoother and more flavorful. No more bitter coffee for us! The Unimatic has become part of our morning ritual and we are enjoying every cup.

- Manny, family member of Unimatic #674

She arrived yesterday afternoon. We carefully unwrapped her packing and set her up to ‘season’ her, to then prepare her for her inaugural pot of coffee. She’s absolutely beautiful and we’re thrilled to be part of the Unimatic Coffee family. Thank you for the prompt shipment, great communication and, of course, the wonderful coffee!!!!

- Dorothy, family member of Unimatic #676

My Unimatic is my favorite thing I have bought in a long time. It is absolutely beautiful and brings me joy. I love the sound of the perk, I love how beautiful it looks on my table and it makes great coffee!! I love it!❤️ I speak Italian, have traveled to Italy Many times and have many friends in Italy. Every time I use it, I slow down, enjoy the conversation and feel like I’m in Italy!

- Shannon, family member of Unimatic #689

I must say, I love my Unimatic. The coffee is so pure, no burned taste, just perfection. I am the only caffeine consumer in our home which creates leftover coffee in the pot. I let it cool down and pour the remainder into a Mason jar and then straight into the fridge. Later in the day or the next morning I reheat a cup of it in the microwave and am good to go. Aesthetically, the pot looks nice sitting on the kitchen counter awaiting its next trip to the stovetop. So....A+++ on the Unimatic! Your father created a great percolator that solved the problem of over brewing. Also, the opening and unpacking of the box upon arrival was like Christmas morning! So much fun. You have done a brilliant job by including so much joy with the arrival of the Unimatic at one’s home.

- Jack, family member of Unimatic #703

First when I opened the package it was beautiful and I could tell just from that, how you value your product. Presentation does count and yours was perfect! I have been drinking coffee for years and I really thought that I knew what coffee tastes like. But sometimes in your life, you have a ""WOW"" experience that you will never forget. The first cup from the Unimatic was the FIRST TIME I ever tasted coffee!!! I really mean it! It was sooooo smooth and flavorful. I don't remember how I found your product but I equate that to finding a gold nugget amid a ton of rocks!! What a find...

- Robert, family member of Unimatic #708

From the moment I decided to purchase a Unimatic, even before watching the Netflix special, I had a feeling that this was more than “just a coffee pot.” The whole experience, from the website to the TED talk, to watching “Coffee for All,” to your Instagram, to the service I’ve received from your office....it has all been wonderful.
