Inspiration Behind the Brand

Born from three generations of strong women.

When life gave them lemons during the COVID pandemic, Lizette Rivera, daughter Sami, and Mom Rose Rivera thought, "to heck with the lemonade, let's make Cafe Con Leche." These three Latinas found the perfect way to bond and create, by infusing delicious baked goods with espresso and drinking rich, decadent coffee like they had done in Lizette's childhood home --a Cuban tradition.

It was just the therapy they all needed during a difficult time. Sami was poised to graduate high school as the Valedictorian of her class before COVID forced her Senior year of studies (and social events) online. Rose, who has dementia, found Lizette's home to be a safe house where she could begin her visit with hugs and a luscious cookie or brownie. It always brought a smile to her face as warm as the steamy mug within her reach.

Experience the Joy

A sip of genius.

Then Rose started asking Lizette for boxes of baked goods that she could share with her friends. These boxes always elicited more smiles and a bright spot in an otherwise dark time for many of Rose's elderly friends and neighbors. That's when the light bulb went off, and Lizette realized they were onto something. They blended their passion for coffee, their sinfully good baked goods, and a desire to spread precious moments of bliss into what is now Roasted Whisk.

Even their beloved fur baby Charlie got in on the fun, which is why Roasted Whisk offers a Pup & Pal Box. Charlie is a Maltese/Yorkie mix with some dietary restrictions, so Lizette partnered with another Hispanic business woman to create dog treats exclusive to Roasted Whisk, including Paw-Pachino and PUP-NANAS. These canine cookies are organic, baked in small batches to preserve freshness, and delivered with lots of puppy love. They are also 100 percent Charlie approved.
