The popular Carlow Town café, Neighbourhood Espresso, has introduced an initiative where customers can "purchase a suspended coffee". 

The brilliant idea is a "humble way to pay it forward". 

The notice in the café says, "Why not buy an extra coffee today and we will put it on hold and give it to someone who needs it?

"Our suspended coffees go towards supporting those in Carlow facing mental health challenges.

"We are friends with Carlow Mental Health Association. This is a way to make our neighbourhood a better place and to generate a smile."


As of Monday in the café, there were an incredible 18 suspended coffees already purchased.
