    Vale Elli (Eleonora Genovese)

    Sad news via ASCA.

    Farewell Elli. Our thoughts are with our CS co-sponsor at this very sad time.

    "The Australian Coffee community received some very sad news today that an icon of our industry has passed.
    The wonderful Elli Genovese has left us today and the thoughts of the global coffee community are with the Genovese family at this great time of sadness."

    My heart goes out to Ray, Dani, her cherished boys, the Genovese family and friends.
    A true matriarch of the coffee world

    RIP Eleonora

    She told it as it was, never pulled punches and loved to have a laugh. Eleonora was a breath of fresh-air at coffee events all over the world and if she didn't like someone it was never a secret.

    I'll miss your honesty and your cheeky snigger, I learnt a lot from you over the years and things just won't be the same without you around. I'll smile and remember you every time I see a Geno bunting... and there are many outside cafes after a lifetime in the industry.

    Heartfelt thoughts are with all the family and I know the boys will be in good hands with Dani, Adam and Ray watching their backs.

    Rest in peace Elli.
