Give a caffe sospeso today

 

A caffè sospeso or suspended coffee is a cup of coffee paid for in advance as an anonymous act of charity. Some say the tradition is over 100 years old and began in the working-class cafés of Naples. Someone who’d had a bit of good luck would order a coffee but pay for two.  Later, a poor person could ask if there was a sospeso available and would then get a coffee for free.

If you’ve ever wanted to buy a hot drink for a homeless person but worried that the money might be spent on something harmful, this is your chance.

Text CAFE13£2 to 70070

We promise that your £2, the price of a cup of coffee, will go directly to providing food and drink to London’s homeless.

In these cold hard times having a lovely cup of coffee is a small treat most of us can afford.  Share that pleasure with our guests.
