The Pilgrims Table - 3

There's nothing like a good cup of tea or coffee at mid-morning! One idea we introduced this year was 'Suspended Coffee'.

Many years ago in Naples, Italy, a tradition was born... Espresso Sospeso. Translating as 'suspended coffee', the idea is simple. Someone goes into a cafe, bakery, restaurant and pre-purchases a coffee or food. This is then a 'suspended coffee'

Someone in need can then go into the business and ask if they have any suspended coffees. They are then provided with warmth and nourishment at no cost to themselves.

Just to be clear - the couple in this photo are not drinking suspended coffees.
