Generous brew! Suspended coffees 'Bounce' off the shelf
TOOWOOMBA cafe Bounce is the first in the Garden City to introduce suspended coffee and already the idea has taken off.
Bounce owner David Burrett said the concept of suspended coffee began in Naples 10 years ago after locals offered to buy coffee for those less fortunate.
"The customer pays for their coffee and then also buys a suspended coffee, which will go to someone who cannot afford a coffee," he said.
"We began suspended coffees last month and already we have over 60. We'll be giving them to local charities such as Red Cross, Drug Arm and other community groups that help the homeless or disadvantaged.
"We've had really positive feedback about suspended coffee, with one regular customer at Bounce putting $50 on the counter. He just said, 'That's for suspended coffees'."
Anyone interested in buying a suspended coffee or to help with corporate support can contact Bounce on 46768548 or email email@example.com.
In other good news for Bounce, the cafe has been named a finalist in the Youth Led Social Enterprise of the Year, conducted by national organisation Social Traders.
"We find out on May 28 if we have won," Mr Burrett said.
