It’s About More Than The Coffee

It’s About More Than The Coffee

Can you support our service users with an “anonymous act of charity”

The Rotaract Club of Aberdeen approached us last year to discuss the innovate concept of Suspended Coffee in Aberdeen.  This gives customers of various city cafes and eateries the chance to pay for an extra coffee or hot drink so that it can be offered to someone who is experiencing hardship.

The scheme runs by allocating vouchers to a service user following assessment from one of our resettlement workers. If a customer purchases a suspended coffee, the service user will then be able to exchange their voucher in a participating outlet in return for a hot drink.

Among the first to sign up to the scheme were the ASDA Beach Café, The Breadmaker on Rosemount Viaduct, Cade De Gelato on King Street and Triple Kirks on Schoolhill.

The concept of suspended coffee is worldwide and stems from an Italian tradition originating in Naples around 100 years ago. The scheme has grown in popularity in recent years, with a number of outlets participating in the concept throughout the world.

For more information about the project, or if you would like to come onboard as a coffee outlet please contact fundraising@aberdeen-cyrenians.org
