Here's my response so far...
"We enter a little coffee shop with a friend of mine and give our order. While we're approuching our table two people come in and they go to the counter-
"Five coffees, please. Two of them for us and three suspended."
They pay for their order, take the two and leave.
I ask my friend, "What are those 'suspended' coffees?"
"Wait for it and you will see."
Some more people enter. Two girls ask for one coffee each, pay and go. The next order was for seven coffees and it was made by three lawyers- three for them and four 'suspended'. While I still wonder what's the deal with those suspended coffees, suddenly a man dressed in shabby clothes who looks like a beggar comes in the door and kindly asks "Do you have a suspended coffee?"
It's simple- people pay in advance for a coffee meant for someone who can not afford a warm beverage. The tradition with the suspended coffee started in Naples, but it has spread all over the world and in some places you can order not only a suspended coffee, but also a sandwich or a whole meal.
