World Poetry Day – Pay for a coffee with a poem!


Julius Meinl coffee and tea premium quality since 1862.

Tuesday, April, 20. 2022.

Inspiring Poetry Day is held since the middle of the 19th century. To-day the world consumes 16000 cups of coffee/second, so it’s no wonder the dedication to have a separate day/time to celebrate coffee culture.

Therefore, ain’t necessary to reinvent the sealing-wax. Yet to-day dozen-and-dozen of countries around the world celebrate the World Poetry Day. The annual celebration coming around in Springtime.

The Ambassador of Viennese café culture: Julius Meinl! According to the “Pay by Poem” initiative, you can pay for coffee with a line of poem written on a piece of paper in the participating coffee houses. The title compared to last year has changed a bit when we bought coffee at any Julius Meinl café or patisserie for money during a campaign called “Say Hello,” then received a coupon  for a next coffee that provided a free coffee to hand over to our friend. The free coupon can be used until Tuesday, May, 31. 2022.

Mind you, you don’t have to be a poet … everyone is a poet in their own way… give it a try … go for it … and maybe be surprised to see, reveal, the secret as to be a poet inside of you

Below are couple of the Julius Meinl’s “Say Thank You” coffee houses which launched the campaign…
