Our Community Cafe operates 'Suspended Coffee'
THE STORY THAT INSPIRED THE GLOBAL SUSPENDED COFFEES INITIATIVEWe entered a little coffeehouse with a friend of mine and gave our order. While we were approaching our table two people came in and went the counter.
“Five coffees, please. Two of them for us and three suspended.”
They paid for their order, took the two and left.
I asked my friend: “What are those ‘suspended coffees?’”
“Wait for it and you will see,” he answered.
Some more people entered. The next order was for seven coffees and it was made by three lawyers – three for them and four “suspended”.
While I still wondered what’s the deal with those “suspended” coffees I enjoyed the summer weather and the beautiful view towards the square in front of the café.
Suddenly a man dressed in shabby clothes who looks like a beggar came in through the door and kindly asked “Do you have a suspended coffee?”
He got a coffee for free – no charge – he sat down and took a sip and a smile ran through his face.
It’s simple – people pay in advance for a coffee meant for someone who cannot afford a warm beverage. The tradition with the suspended coffees started in Naples, but it has spread all over the world and in some places you can order not only a suspended coffee, but also a sandwich or a whole meal.
“The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.”
