Have you heard about suspended coffee?
According to Wikipedia, a suspended coffee (also known as caffè sospeso or pending coffee) “is a cup of coffee paid for in advance as an anonymous act of charity. The tradition began in the working-class cafés of Naples, where someone who had experienced good luck would order a sospeso, paying the price of two coffees but receiving and consuming only one. A poor person inquiring later whether there was a sospeso available would then be served a coffee for free. Coffee shops in other countries have adopted the sospeso to increase sales, and to promote kindness and caring in all communities.” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caff%C3%A8_sospeso)
