Suspended Coffee (保留コーヒー)っていう言葉、聞いたことがありますか?




イタリアのナポリでは、市民の多くがエスプレッソを飲むので、ごく当たり前のように「誰かのために」コーヒー 一杯分を余分に払う、Suspended Coffee(保留コーヒー)の風習があるそうです。







お店のHPや、Suspended CoffeeのFacebookページもありますので、ご覧くださいね。

Mission ( Facebook Page of Suspended Coffees )

A caffè sospeso (Italian: suspended coffee) is a cup of coffee paid for in advance as an anonymous act of charity. It is a café variation of ”pay it forward”.
We are the biggest pay it forward movement on Facebook, buy a coffee or food item for someone down on their luck, a old friend, or a complete stranger. “Like us for daily inspiration

Every once in a while an idea comes along with the potential to truly make the world a better place. Suspended Coffee is one of those ideas.

First, it’s simple. You walk into a coffee shop and instead of buying just one cup of coffee, you buy two, or more. You buy one for yourself and one for someone in need. The cashier takes your money and uses it to pay for a coffee for someone in need.

Second, it’s direct. You do not need to worry if your money is going to actually help someone or just to take care of a charity organisation and it’s overhead and expenses. You also do not need to worry whether or not your recipient will use your gift to buy alcohol or drugs. You can directly control which food or beverage you would like to donate.

Third, it’s win-win. You not only support a person in need, you also support your local business and all its employees. Your money does not go to another country or continent. It stays right in the neighborhood where it was spent.

Lastly, it can be used for more than just coffee. You could buy a hot bowl of nourishing soup, a filling sandwich, water, fruit, bread, or a full meal. Suspended coffee’s simplicity makes it easy to duplicate with other food items.
