Coffice

From the New York Times Article: "The Words of the Year"

coffice: In South Korea, a coffee shop habitually used as an office by customers, who mooch its space, electricity, Wi-Fi and other resources. Presumably, they pay for the coffee.
You know that would pretty much sum up any food-service type place in Korea, excluding very fancy places. There is no real sense of "times-up" and "it's time to pay and go." Really, people eat and then drink coffee, talk a lot, then eat some more and so on. Always made me wonder how this is good for business. Is it bad that they don't have a heavy cycle of customers coming and going? Or does having a large set of customers who eat and drink a lot for long hours, better?

Ah, well...interesting it made it in to this article.
