Coffee is just a friendly metaphor used for giving and receiving support, there isn't actually any coffee involved. We think it's a bit nicer than just calling it a "donation".
What you receive is a sum of money which by default is set to $3 (roughly the price of a coffee). You actually get that money directly and instantly into your PayPal or Stripe account with 0% platform fees taken by us!
