Why are They Giving Away Free Coffee?

Because they think that people would hang out here more if they didn't have to pay for it.

This confuses me, however because part of a society separated by class is the differential on how much you have to pay to hang out in a given locale.

What would happen if all cafes gave away coffee and internet? Anyone with a laptop would be coming out of the woodwork.

Oh, the huge manatee!
