This infinitely curious, coffee loving, Brooklyn native had business cards at six and her first product on shelves at 13. After graduating from college and business school with highest honors, spending some time at a big bank and a $4 billion alternative asset management fund, Elisabeth dealt with loss, found her passion, then more loss and learned the meaning of post traumatic growth. She started a coffee company called Caffè Unimatic (with a story you won’t believe), has gone on to give two TEDx talks and start speaking in the US and abroad (we’re still wondering where that shy 9 year old went).
Through telling the story of Caffe Unimatic and it’s rare coffee pots, Elisabeth realized that there was more for her to create. Now, through Caffe Unimatic’s Ambassador program and Legacy Out Loud’s methodology and Spring Break retreat, she is on a mission to help young women deepen their sense of confidence, find their voice and prepare for the twists and turns of life by starting in the most unlikely of places, the end.
She’s been featured by the United Nations, Worldwide Business with Kathy Ireland, Forbes, AMEX OPEN Forum, TEDx Normal, TEDx Fulton Street, GQ, NBC, featured in a documentary called ‘Caffe Sospeso’ and many more.
She is currently, head-over-heels about: the power of coffee as a ritual, the universal potential it has as an agent of change, building confidence over coffee and reinventing what “sales” means to the next generation. She’s famous for asking hard questions, Disney-character-like facial expressions and urging people to linger just a little longer at the table together, over coffee.
