Austrian cafes take part in suspended coffee scheme

A coffee trend that started in Naples whereby a customer pays for a second coffee to be donated to someone less fortunate is now being operated in several cafes in Austria.

Since it started in Italy several years ago, the concept of 'Caffe Sospeso', called 'Suspended Coffee' in English, has been exported to a total of nineteen countries and even as far as Australia.

The concept works by customers paying for a second coffee whilst buying one for themselves at a participating cafe. This can then be claimed by someone who cannot afford to buy one themselves. Someone collecting a free coffee does not need to prove that they cannot afford it as it is all done on good faith.

The Austria version of the 'Caffe Sospeso' website www.bohnuskaffee.at lits five cafes in the country who are taking part: Vienna Local Cafe Tachles, Cafe Showcase, Cafe Baristarie, Dellago and Emmi's Cafe (St. Poelten).

"I can recommend every restaurant owner to participate in the scheme," says Cafe Tachles' Daniel Landau. "It costs nothing, is not complicated and creates good conversation and trust between the team and guests."
