The Sparrow’s Nest in East Victoria Park introduced suspended coffees last week and have already helped at least one person in need.
The concept has been shared around the world through social media and asks people to buy their coffee, but pay for two ” their spare coffee is written up on a board and goes to someone less fortunate.
‘It doesn’t have to be a homeless person, just someone down on their luck,’ Ms Wolinski said.
Ms Wolinski, who introduced the concept to the cafe, said word was spreading fast.
‘One of my regular customers came in and told me about it, and I thought it was an amazing opportunity to be able to help people,’ she said.
‘I have been in the kind of situation where I couldn’t afford things’
