  1. Perhaps I can answer it. Buy me coffee is mean to be a metaphor asking for favor in terms of charity, not forcefully but on your wish and on the other hand asking for direct money is somewhat opposite to it.

  2. As most of the website which provides free content that will help somebody. when someone came to there website to have that knowledge they get it for free. this is what simple we understand.
    but do you know how much effort it takes to make it happen? it also involves money to create and maintain that free stuff.
    now if he or she started charging for that information person who has no money will no more able to get it. and also the motive of giving it free will be affected. so what is someone who is able to support that guy can support with a donation in that way both the content creators and readers can have what they need.
    now why they use “buy me a coffee”. well donation word can be something that we don’t want to go with for an individual identity it is more related to organizational also like that kind of people who work a whole day on computers drinks lots of coffee (hypothetically) and working on the computer is their passion and they don’t expect anything in return. they just need a coffee (some money )to keep it going.
    so next time you get something valuable online and that person needs a coffee to keep his work going “buy him a Coffee “

  3. I don’t quite understand your question? I’ve never heard of anyone doing such a thing. It possibly been directed at someone impaticular. I’m not sure why anyone would ask for coffee instead of money for a cup. Then again how many cups is this person looking for. I would definitely ask the person exactly what it is their needing. That is if you are that concerned.
