VIVA LA REVOLUTION
From geographical to intellectual, coffee has helped sharpen the minds of great revolutionists. The introduction of coffee helped to sober up the masses and in large part led to the birth of democracies and the fomentation of revolutionary activity.
In America, the thirteen colonies adopted coffee as their patriotic drink of choice over tea, which was heavily imported and imposed by Britain on America's colonists. Coffee would remain America's favorite drink, and the U.S. would become the world's largest importer of coffee.
Today, it is universally accepted that caffeine gets people talking and thinking. At Wired Coffee Bar, we believe that coffee houses serve as a gathering place for discourse. We cater to a wide array of clientele that included writers, philosophers, physicians, and political minds.
?Next time you're standing at the counter waiting to place your order, take a look over your shoulder at all those people, furiously tapping away on their laptops and smart phones. Perhaps they are unwittingly participating in the next revolution.
