Randomised Coffee Trials are slowly but surely catching on. In this month's newsletter I have included a report from the Red Cross Red Crescent (IFRC) that describes their experiences with them.
I am also starting to experiment myself. Over 90 members of my community in the London region have registered for the Gurteen London Coffee Club and had their first coffee conversations last month.
So far they are going well and I have had some great feedback - pretty much in line with the Red Cross Red Crescent report though unlike the IFRC most of the London meetings have been face to face.
If you live in or near London and are able to meet face to face for coffee then you learn more and sign up for the London Coffee Club here but keep in mind it is a commitment to meet with what will be most likely a stranger (albeit a member of this community that share some common interests) once a month, face to face for coffee.
I plan to also create a second Gurteen Global Coffee Club in the near future. Unlike the London club, being global, the idea will be that people meet for a virtually via say Skype for their coffee chat. More on this soon.
