One generous customer at the restaurant on Beaverhill Blvd. started a chain of customers paying for the person behind them that lasted about three hours.
Finally, one man ended the streak when he didn't pay for the three coffees ordered by the next person. The customer before him had paid for his four coffees.
The part of the story when the ghosts of Christmas transform him into a generous and loving coffee drinker comes later, don't worry.
Kindness among Winnipeg coffee drinkers has become a trend lately with anonymous do-gooders popping up around the city to pay for others' small purchases.
Such gestures warm our hearts during the holiday season. Yahoo! Canada News commenters have shared their experiences of goodwill, such as Rosie, who says she's paid for others' purchases at the grocery store.
"The gesture makes you feel emotionally rich," she wrote.
One man said a stranger once paid for an oyster dinner he'd had with his wife, covering a tab of almost $300.
Maclean's wrote that paying it forward is a centuries-old tradition.
U2 singer Bono once said "The world needs more Canada," as one Y! Canada commenter pointed out, saying he couldn't agree more.
Bono may have an idea there.

INDIANAPOLIS - An Indianapolis Metro Police Department Officer was arrested on several felony charges after an alleged domestic violence situation involving his wife and the wife of another IMPD officer, officials said.
Officer John Haggard was taken into custody after police said he got into a physical argument Sunday with his wife at their home in the 8800 block of Browns Valley Court on the city's southwest side.
During the altercation, detectives said Haggard's wife sent a text message to the wife of another IMPD officer who lived across the street. The wife of the other IMPD officer entered the Haggards' home and took their child with her to her home across the street.
A short time later, detectives said Haggard forced his way into the fellow officer's home and took out his service handgun. No shots were fired, police said. Haggard was arrested and taken into custody on several felony charges including criminal recklessness, criminal confinement, burglary and battery with injury. He was released on bond and suspended without pay, police said. IMPD Chief Rick Hite confirmed the arrest, RTV6's Jack Rinehart reported.
Haggard has served IMPD for 14 years, officials said.

Underneath their stupid dumb fuck warning is a print button and a social share tab...
As for the cop? Fuck em... In other forums people are trying to guess his potential convictions and punishments. I am betting Unlawful trespass....maybe simple assault... I doubt it... as for punishment... I bet he'll be fired from that police force and go to work elsewhere in a new police force.
We really dont know what exact day you were born. We have heard it in stories for over 2000 years. Stories change and times change. You became a savior and you' re stories have changed over the years. To some you're just a cross on a wall, to others you are a black man and today you are santa claus. I wish you a happy birthday and I hope you and God understand how much your visit meant to us. Merry Christmas Jesus.
