Caffe sospeso

Someone recently suggested that Slave Lakers start paying ahead for a coffee or a meal at Slave Lake restaurants and coffee shops, which can then be picked up by someone in need.

A quick internet search shows that the trend has gone by several names. ‘Hanging’, ‘suspended coffee’, paid forward, etc.

At least one term comes from the early 1900s in Naples, Italy ‘suspended coffee’ comes from the Italian caffe sospeso.
