Caffeine Trivia 03.22.14

By 1700 there were more than 2000 London coffeehouses – they occupied more premises and paid more rent than any other trade.  These coffee houses became known as penny universities – for the price of one cup of coffee, someone could sit for hours and listen to the conversations of extraordinary people of the time.  Each coffeehouse specialized in different clientele and topics: physicians, Catholics, Protestants, Jews, lawyers, actors…you get the picture….they became “the” meeting place.
