Rivera Women

Inspired From Three Generations of Strong Women

In the midst of the COVID pandemic, Lizette Rivera, her daughter Sami, and her mother Rose turned a challenging time into an opportunity for creativity and connection. Refusing the idea of making lemonade out of lemons, they chose instead to craft Cafe Con Leche, a nod to their rich Latina heritage. Together, they reinvented bonding time by blending delicious baked goods with espresso and indulging in the rich, decadent Cuban espresso that was a staple in Lizette’s childhood, embracing a beloved Cuban tradition.

It became their solace during uncertain times. As Sami faced the disruption of her senior year and the loss of in-person celebrations, despite being on track to be Valedictorian, and Rose sought comfort in the midst of her dementia, Lizette’s home transformed into a space of comfort and joy.

A Sip of Genius

It all started when Rose began requesting Lizette to prepare boxes of their delightful baked goods to share with her circle of friends. These thoughtful packages became beacons of joy, illuminating the days of Rose’s elderly companions during a period shadowed by hardship. It was their spark of happiness that ignited a brilliant idea in Lizette’s mind – they had discovered a recipe for something truly special. Combining their love for rich coffee, irresistibly delicious baked treats, and the mission to deliver happiness, Roasted Whisk Gifting Co. was born.
