EU Embraces 'Suspended Coffee'

EU Embraces 'Suspended Coffee' | Espresso Mode | Scoop.it

Tough economic times and growing poverty in much of Europe are reviving a humble tradition that began some one-hundred years ago in the Italian city of Naples. It's called caffè sospeso — "suspended coffee": A customer pays in advance for a person who cannot afford a cup of coffee.
The barista would keep a log, and when someone popped his head in the doorway of the cafe and asked, "Is there anything suspended?" the barista would nod and serve him a cup of coffee ... for free.
It's an elegant way to show generosity: an act of charity in which donors and recipients never meet each other, the donor doesn't show off and the recipient doesn't have to show gratitude.
The practice is now spreading to other crisis-ravaged parts of Europe.
In Bulgaria, the European Union's poorest country, where several desperate people have set themselves on fire in recent months, more than 150 cafes have joined an initiative modeled on the Neapolitan "suspended coffee" tradition.
In crisis-wracked Spain, a young man from Barcelona, Gonzalo Sapina, in a few short weeks started a network called Cafes Pendientes ("pending coffees") and promoted the initiative among numerous coffee shops.
In France, several cafes now carry the logo "cafe en attente" ("waiting coffee").
And there is even a site that lists establishments that have joined the "suspended coffee" initiative — the countries range from the U.K. and Ireland and Hungary to Australia and Canada.

The prepaid cup of coffee has become a symbol of grass-roots social solidarity at a time of mounting poverty in what, until recently, were affluent Western societies.

How to Drink Coffee… Like An Italian

How to Drink Coffee… Like An Italian | Espresso Mode | Scoop.it

Enjoy coffee in Italy like an Italian—know the difference between an espresso and a caffe americano, figure out when you should pay at a cafe, and never order a cappuccino after a meal!

The number of places labeled “bar” in your average Italian city would make you think all Italians have a drinking problem. They do: a coffee drinking problem! That’s because a “bar” is actually what we would call a “cafe.” (And, confusingly, a caffè actually means a “coffee”… but more on that later).

At the bar, you usually have to pay for your coffee before ordering it

Don’t order a cappuccino after noon…

Obviously, a latte in an American or British Starbucks isn’t the same as a latte in Italy (milk).

Instead, here are the most popular Italian coffee phrases you should know:

CaffèCappuccinoLatte macchiatoCaffè americanoCaffè lungo

Electrolux Memory by WenYao Cai

Electrolux Memory by WenYao Cai | Espresso Mode | Scoop.it

It takes a good barista to memorize their customer’s favorite cuppa coffee and serve it right for them. However sometimes we get stuck with a snobbish one who just doesn’t get it right. Memory is a coffee maker that uses hand print recognition to make the right cup of coffee for the right person. Set it to your preference of weak, medium or strong coffee or even an espresso to a ristretto.Each time be assured of your favorite blend as Memory will remember your preference accurately. A simple hand scan is all it needs.
