什麼是待用咖啡? (Suspended Coffee)


我和朋友來到一個小咖啡館點了我們喜愛的咖啡。正當我們端著咖啡準備坐下時,又進來了兩位客人。他們徑直走到櫃檯前對服務員說:「五杯咖啡,兩杯給我們,三杯待用。(Suspended)」

他們付了五杯的咖啡錢,端著兩杯咖啡走了。

我問朋友:「什麼是待用咖啡?(Suspended Coffee)」

「等一下你會明白的。」

又有一些人進來,兩位女士各自要了一杯咖啡付過帳走了。隨後,有三位律師付了七杯咖啡的款,一人一杯,另有四杯待用。我帶著對待用咖啡的疑惑,欣賞著咖啡館前廣場上陽光明媚的冬色。這時,進來一位衣衫不整看上去像乞丐的老者,他輕聲的問服務員︰「請問現在有待用咖啡嗎?」

這個其實很簡單,有人提前買了咖啡存在咖啡館,讓那些付不起咖啡款的人能夠享受一杯溫暖的咖啡。這個待用咖啡的傳統開始於義大利的Naples,現已傳遍全世界的各個地方。在有些地方,不僅可以買待用咖啡,而且可以買待用三明治或者一個晚餐。

原文如下:

This story will warm you better than a coffee in a cold winter day:

"We enter a little coffeehouse with a friend of mine and give our order. While we're approaching our table two people come in and they go to the counter -'Five coffees, please. Two of them for us and three suspended'

They pay for their order, take the two and leave.

I ask my friend: 'What are those 'suspended' coffees ?'

'Wait for it and you will see'

Some more people enter. Two girls ask for one coffee each, pay and go. The next order was for seven coffees and it was made by three lawyers - three for them and four 'suspended'. While I still wonder what's the deal with those 'suspended' coffees I enjoy the sunny weather and the beautiful view towards the square in front of the café. Suddenly a man dressed in shabby clothes who looks like a beggar comes in through the door and kindly asks 'Do you have a suspended coffee ?'

It's simple - people pay in advance for a coffee meant for someone who can not afford a warm beverage. The tradition with the suspended coffees started in Naples, but it has spread all over the world and in some places you can order not only a suspended coffee, but also a sandwich or a whole meal."


溫暖的待用咖啡~
