This morning, a regular customer paid for his coffee, pastry, AND a $20 gift card. When the transaction was complete, he leaned in and quietly requested that I use the gift card to pay for everyone’s coffee that was in line behind him. He walked away quickly and quietly, with a look contentment, a trace of excitement, and glowing good energy. He was “paying it forward” so to speak.
 As I rung up the coffees that the lovely guests of Philz had ordered behind him there was a mix of confusion, disbelief, and delight.
Thank you to the special anonymous customer that believes in bettering someone else’s day. We like your style.
