Pay It Forward with a Cup of Joe

EU Embraces “Suspended Coffee”:

Tough economic times and growing poverty in much of Europe are reviving a humble tradition that began some one-hundred years ago in the Italian city of Naples. It’s called caffè sospeso — “suspended coffee”: A customer pays in advance for a person who cannot afford a cup of coffee.

I saw this mentioned on Facebook by Jell Carlson. What a great idea. I’ve “often” (whenever I can afford it) buy coffee for the person behind me at Starbucks. And I almost always do it for military personnel I see in a line. It’s a little thing you can do every now and then to make a complete stranger a little bit happier.
