INSTRUCTIONS

Each friendship has its own, distinctive poetry, which you both know by heart.

On World Coffee Day, put that poetry in writing, together, and your verses could be turned into the unique song of your friendship.

HOW IT WORKS:

Each write a couple of verses about
your friendship on the same MEET
WITH A POEM paper sheet.

Use the poem to get two cups of
coffee or tea
for the price of one.

Take a photo of your poem, submit it to meinlcoffee.com on October 1st 2018
and get a chance to have your verses turned into a real song.

MEET WITH A POEM 2018

With communication now defined by swipes and clicks, our friendships are taking a toll, existing primarily on apps and networking sites. We make plans, share news and allow our conversations to exist on-screen without meeting in-person for months at a time, embracing the easy intimacy of short messages that construct the illusion of a strong social network.
The Meet With A Poem initiative aims to help bring people together “in real life”.

The idea is simple, on World Coffee Day, those who take their friendship offline and meet in coffee houses can claim a 2-for-1 coffee at Julius Meinl locations – all in exchange for co-writing a poem explaining how they met.

Julius Meinl’s global ambassador, platinum-selling singer-songwriter and coffee lover, JP Cooper knows the importance of written communication to express oneself- drawing parallels with song writing and poetry. “It’s no secret that social media gives us a false sense of connectedness, encouraging us to communicate in half-written sentences and emoticons. It is easy to lose sight of the power of language when we communicate on WhatsApp or by text, and I hope that the initiative will help more people to favour real world friendship and realise that language- verbal or written- has the ability to build stronger, more heart-felt connections.”, JP Cooper said.
