The suspended coffee started, in Romania, as a local initiative and with support of getlokal.ro and, in less than two weeks after the idea was first suggested, 35 places from 10 cities in Romania joined the movement and implemented the idea.
Some owners chose the gamification idea of paying for a coffee for someone else by encouraging customers to leave notes with good thoughts for those who would claim the coffee. Others preferred the charity idea and found transparent mechanisms for giving the products that were left “suspended” directly to the people in need.
From the tradition in Southern Italy, passing through Ukraine and Bulgaria and arriving in Romania, the simplicity of the idea generated more and more random acts of generosity.
After very good feedback from the Romanian cafe owners and some international requests for the logo that getlokal.ro created, the recommendation website decided to share more, in the spirit of the suspended coffee movement.
That is how suspendedcoffeeglobal.com appeared – a site that any owner, from anywhere in the world can use to list his/her place and download stickers and posters that help them communicate the concept to their customers. And if you want to share information with others involved in the movement, you can connect & share – all the relevant links are available.
With a focus on social life, free time and lifestyle, getlokal is addressed to people that understand that going out decisions are made by taking into consideration the advice and recommendations of other people online. getlokal also has a mobile app and is present in Bulgaria, Romania, Macedonia and soon Serbia.
