Sospeso !! (Cuckoo Latte Medan )

Hello CoffeeLovers.

There's a tradition in Italy. Because drinking coffee were becoming a great part of human rights, and the poor that actually cannot afford it yet can get Sospeso Coffee or Coffee Pending.

Caffe Sospesso were originally an act of charity toward the homeless and the poor.
I give you this illustration.
A man were make a take-out order cappucinno and pays for 3 cups of it. But then he just take 2 cups and asked the Barista to make the other cup a Pending Coffee. The Barista said yes, and he packed the 2 cups and gave it to him. The next few minutes, a lady did the same thing but just order 2 cups, pays for them both but just took a cup and asked the Barista if he could make the other cup a Pending Coffee. The Barista said Yes.
Just before the closing time, a homeless man came, sit on the banco and asked the Barista if there's any Coffee Pending left.
The Barista handed over the Cappucinno which is already payed by the earliest customers.

That is really a great tradition, remembering if charity doesn't always had to be money.
Now i'm just wondering here. What would happen to my country Indonesia if there's such tradition ??


This is actually a late post, i reviewed this Cafe for almost three weeks ago.
Cuckoo Latte 
Jalan S. Parman No. 64
MedanNorth Sumatra 20114 

The name "Cuckoo Latte" originally came from the cuckoo clock, and somehow the
wallpapers and interiors reminds me of it

This place has some great menus. Despise focusing on drinks, they serve delicious snacks for
customers to eat.

I love the Interior Design, it's very inviting and colourful.
This cafe located not too far from schools and public places. I believe they're customers are teenagers and students of course. Being next to Jln. S. Parman, this place is surely catches our eyes when we pass the road.

Small place, yet Cozy and a really great place for a hang out.
I love how they actually pick their name "Cuckoo"
It's like something that not common but sounds familiar.

The Menu, i belive it's DIY stuff, cartons and some homemade things.

Latte art Cappucinos :)
Cafes rarely give addition to cappucino, they gave they biscuits addition.

Ta- Da, This is La Spazialle S5. A 54kg beast with attractive Ruby Red. 5 Litre Boiler and Temperature Adjusting makes this machine a capable on large cafes and makes this an amazing tool to operate and learn much about temperature. Killer steam wand and amazing Stabilize Temperature system

I interviewed the Barista, His name is Yofi and he's really a nice guy. He has great potential to become a great Barista. He loved to talk and i really enjoyed my conversation with him. He's still new to the Coffee world, but it doesn't matter because all i can see is his passion to be greater..

oooh man, This machine is a beauty ...
