Please start ordering suspended coffee's

The concept of “paying it forward” is not a new one, but it is an important one.

Performing small acts of kindness for others is extremely rewarding. It plays into the idea that “what goes around, comes around.” And, certainly, it is a wonderful feeling to know that you were able to make a small difference in someone else’s life.

So when I saw this story about people in a coffee shop who were “paying it forward,” I knew I had to share it.

This story has been circulating the internet for years. Though the exact origin of the story is unknown, it is actually true! And while it seems to have come from somewhere in Italy, its message has inspired people in countries all over the world.

In this story, a woman in a coffee shop observes people paying for extra coffees and leaving without them. When she finds out the reason behind it, her outlook on life is changed for good.

I entered a little coffeehouse with a friend of mine, and we gave our order. While we were approaching our table, two people came in and went to the counter.
One of them said, “Five coffees, please. Two of them for us, and three suspended.” They paid for their order, took the two, and left.
I asked my friend, “What are those ‘suspended’ coffees?”
“Wait for it, and you will see.”

Several more people entered. Two girls asked for one coffee each, paid, and left.
The next order was for seven coffees and it was made by three lawyers – three for them and four ‘suspended’.
While I was still wondering what the deal was with those ‘suspended’ coffees, I enjoyed the sunny weather and the beautiful view towards the square in front of the cafe.

Suddenly, a man dressed in shabby clothes, who looked like a beggar, came in through the door and asked kindly, “Do you have a suspended coffee?”
It was simple: people paid in advance for a coffee meant for someone who could not afford a warm beverage.
The tradition with the suspended coffees started in Italy, but it has spread all over the world. In some places, you can order not only a suspended coffee — but also a sandwich or a whole meal.
Let this be a reminder that the smallest gestures can make a lasting impression on another human being.
