AMERICA:

AMERICA:
A COFFEE COUNTRY

THE BEGINNING

The Boston Tea Party was the beginning of The United States of America, a coffee society. Coffee is everywhere in America. You'll find it in almost every American home, restaurant, grocery shop, gas station or airport.

Early colonial settlers enjoyed coffee, and it became a preferred hot drink for the colonial settlers, who were mostly from England, a country with a rich tradition of hot tea.

Colonists were furious when the British taxed tea imports to the colonies and gave the British East India Company the exclusive right to trade for tea.

John Adams wrote to his wife:

"Tea must all be renounced
and I must weane, the sooner the better."

The unofficial boycott of tea in (then British Colonies) began at this point. People came together and pledged to stop serving tea in their homes.


This act of solidarity quickly spread throughout the Colonies, and people started to associate coffee with Revolutionary Warfare. The Boston Tea Party of 1773 was the result of colonists throwing barrels of British tea into the harbour and overboard. Ironically, this act was apparently planned at a coffee shop.

The Revolutionary War ended in 1783, and the British expertise in teas grew late into the 1800s.

It was a favorite drink of the King and Queen, all royalty did. The entire population loved tea. The British East India Company dominated the tea trade as British tea farmers were being set up in India and Sri Lanka. Refusing British products represented the rejection of British dominance, an idea reinforced by the Revolutionary War.

Because tea was so closely linked to Britain, The Boston Tea Party made it a patriotic duty to drink coffee over tea.

Coffee culture began to seep into homes, and our soldiers enjoyed it also.

General William Smallwood listed 1,500 pounds coffee as one of the "most essential [items]" to purchase immediately for south regiments in 1781.

Some people returned to drinking tea after the war, but coffee shops remained popular. American work and lifestyles made our country into a nation known for our caffeine culture.
It's amazing to see how a simple political movement that's over 200 years old helped create something that would be come an essential through line in modern America.
