Teatotaller, Tea Totaller Tea House
Born and raised in Somersworth NH, Emmett Soldati is a small business owner, activist, and occasional provocateur. A graduate of the London School of Economics, Emmett spent the last decade working to connect and uplift the community he knows and loves - his hometown. 7 years ago, Emmett founded Teatotaller - a cafe, bakery, and restaurant, that has blossomed into a hub of LGBTQ+ programming, community gatherings, and social justice activism. When he isn't blending teas, pouring latte art, or laminating puff pastry, he works for an international non-profit, FarmersFirst:Africa, to support climate knowledge and food security for subsistence farmers throughout central Africa. He is the vice-chair of seacoast area nonprofit, Arts in Reach, and the chair of the Somersworth Democrats.
