As part of being a VIP person, you can create your own “unique” quote on you VIP card too!
While ordering coffee, I noticed this sign about Sharing the Love, TRUE!
I inquired about, and the staff were only “more than happy” to explain about the Suspended Coffee Movement that has now taken Adelaide cafes, coffee houses, bakeries, and lunch bars by storm too!
Remember I can STILL hear you behind your computer screen in Internet Land! lol
I never heard about it until yesterday and perhaps I should get out a bit more too!
This is why I am sharing this worldwide now with you!
“Where did it originate from?”
I LIKE that you ARE curious like me!
Caffè Sospeso (Italian for Suspended Coffee) began over 100 years ago in Naples, Italy!
Per Writer Luciano de Crescenzo, author of ‘Il caffè sospeso: Saggezza quotidiana in piccolo sorsi’ (Suspended Coffee: Daily Wisdom in Small Sips):
“When a person who had a break of good luck entered a cafe and ordered a cup of coffee, he didn’t pay just for one, but for two cups, allowing someone less fortunate who entered later to have a cup of coffee for free.” *
“Who will received a suspended coffee?” I “hear” you say?
I really enjoy your PASSION and ENTHUSIASM in asking questions today!
Each premises will decide who is “in need” of a coffee.
There is no judgement based on one’s appearance or any other factors too!
The Suspended Coffee Movement is all about “spreading a little love and kindness” and paying it forward on the day!
Suspended Coffee Day started on June 1st in Australia.
“How many countries are involved?” “And how is the word being spread?”
These are GREAT questions I ‘hear” you ask worldwide today!
There are currently 16 countries including Romania, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Ireland and now Australia!
Am sure Northern Territory, Tasmania, and ACT are on board supporting the Movement too!
As of this post, I could not find them on Facebook, but will be more than happy to update the post and “share the love” too!
I am a VERY proud South Aussie, TRUE!
I LOVE promoting local businesses and businesses within Australia who are also PASSIONATE in what they do!
Currently (and subject to change), we have 16 businesses supporting the Suspended Coffee Movement in Adelaide too!
Do YOU “feel” the LOVE today?
Can you locate and share YOUR local businesses supporting the Suspended Coffee Movement worldwide?
Would love to hear your thoughts in the comments section about the Suspended Coffee Movement and will you be supporting Caffè Sospeso?
I “strongly” believe in traditions….YOU?
Purchasing a coffee for a stranger in need might “enlighten and brighten” you day too!SOURCE
