Free Flying Coffee
Cafes in the Prenzlauer Berg district of Berlin are offering coffee on the house as part of an on-going scheme called Fliegender Kaffee (Flying Coffee).
Participating cafes are offering free cups of coffee with no questions asked to encourage community sprit in an area of the city where creative professionals often work alone from cafes. Generous customers can also add to the running tab by buying an extra coffee for strangers to enjoy.
Publicist Maik Eimertenbrink, co-founder of Fliegender Kaffee, said: “They have no money one month, and the other month, a lot of money. The month they have money, they can pay for two coffees. But the month they are broke, they drink the free coffee.”
