All for a coffee

This is the story of a typical Mendoza bicicafetero. The one who was robbed of his bike one day. Thanks to solidarity, he sold coffee again.

Stories of people

They are a classic, and deserve a separate note, the street coffee makers in the city of Mendoza. Which, due to their obvious elements of work, are called bicicafers. And, logically and obviously, they're in their bicicafé. I would encourage myself to say that absolutely all the people of Mendoza once trieda coffee from these nomadic workers. This is a real trade. Which in many cases is inherited, from generation to generation. And, as a rule, there is no retirement for this work.

That's the case with Vicente. A man who has been engaged in the service of serving coffee on his bike for over 30 years. However, the kindness and confidence of this good man were once violated. More precisely, it was the time when he turned to his usual supplier to buy his inputs, among them, the typical thermal glasses of telgopor. The man left his bike on the sidewalk and entered the business. But on the way out, 3 minutes later, the coffeetruck was gone. Tamaña was Vicente's surprise. For the first time, in 30 years, his element of work had disappeared.

Solidarity with the agenda

Staff of the trade to which Vincent had entered took letters in the matter. They quickly made a publication in F to cebookto replenish what had been stolen from the walking coffee maker. In it, they told what had happened and, generating empathy in the users, they achieved their goal. The post quickly achieved thousands of likes and hundreds of shares. Thus, the solidarity of society got coffee, sugar, milk and thermos so that the good Vicente will once again pedal through the streets of Mendoza.
