We go to coffee shops not only for our daily fix of caffeine. You might think it's the cute barista behind the counter or the chill music coming out of the speakers, but there are a latte more details a joint can use to steal customers from their competitors around the corner. Bored Panda has collected a series of clever coffee house ideas, and they're so creative, we can't get bean-ough of them. From giving away used grounds as compost to coming up with alternative syrup names (yes, I'm talking about the 'bee vomit'), these entries of this list are useful and funny enough to make anybody's day.
