17th Century Coffee House

Coffee Houses became incredibly popular as coffee beans began to be brought back from the Middle East by the Levant Company. They paved the way for a slew of drinking fashions as international trade widened the palate of consumers. Soon, colonists would seek to find their own cash crops to compete with the established producers. Coffee shops became highly fashionable and were the place to be seen.
