The Name & Concept

The name is a term that refers to mixing parts of different songs together and creating new music. WBN hosts networking meetings which they call "mashups" due to the mixing of various ideas during these events to create something new and exciting for the entire city. These networking meetings brought to light the need for quiet comfortable space to meet with clients or host small seminars and other events... Kaffe is a java term ... and that is how Mashup Kaffe came to be!

Caffe Sospeso

What is caffe sospeso?
Caffe Sospeso is a cup of coffee paid for in advance as an anonymous act of charity. The tradition began in the working-class cafe's of Naples, where someone who had experienced good luck would order a "sospeso", paying the price of two coffees but receiving and consuming only one.
