Caffeine Trivia 03.31.14

The British Coffeehouse boom comes to the colonies!  The first American coffeehouse opened in Boston in 1869 but there wasn’t a clear distinction between tavern and coffeehouse.  At Boston’s Green Dragon (1697 – 1832) they served coffee, tea and ale.  It was reported that it was there that James Adams, James Otis and Paul Revere met to form the rebellion that would lead Daniel Webster to call it the headquarters of the Revolution.
