In the cafes of Naples Italy, it's an old tradition for a customer who has just benefitted from fortune or luck (getting a new job, getting engaged, having a baby, etc.) to order a "Caffe Sospeso" -- literally a suspended coffee.
They pay for two coffees and receive one. The second coffee is considered "suspended" until someone indigent or in need comes into the cafe and asks for a coffee. Then it is given to the indigent person gratis.

The tradition might remind you of the way that a happy customer might buy a round of drinks for everyone at the bar.
You can help revive this fun tradition of the Caffe Sospeso on ROASTe by sending customers coffee as a gift. Coffee makes a wonderful gift, of course. You can purchase eGift Cards for anyone with an email address. You can also purchase on ROASTe a wide variety of gift items and coffee tour subscriptions.
Or you could just pay us double for your order. Maybe that's a tradition better observed in Naples!
