READ THEIR STORY
"I think there is something empowering about taking a chance."
Flavio Lichtenthal moved to New York from Argentina when he was just a young boy. That’s where he met his wife and reconfirmed his passion for food and people. Eventually he and his new family moved from the big city to the Massachusetts countryside. It was here, many years later, that the Lichtenthals decided to take a risk and follow their dream. So, Flavio quit his long-standing job of 10 years, took a leap of faith, and opened Six Depot—a small café in the Berkshires.
"We wanted to open a coffee shop for many reasons. I had a long-held interest in coffee from my upbringing in Buenos Aires, and from spending so much time in cafés in New York. Cafés are a great place to be alone with people."
Today, Six Depot is a family-run business and it’s doing well. It’s a place where friends and strangers alike can sit down and talk over a cup of coffee. And the Lichtenthals couldn’t be happier with their decision to follow their dream.
"Life is about passion and trying to create things and bring your ideas to life. I think, more than anything that I want to leave for my children, it’s the confidence and the ability to do that. And perhaps they’ll fail, but at least they’ll know that it’s still okay to try."
The Lichtenthals know that life is about seizing the moment. That’s why they have us.
