International Coffee Day: How Coffee Changed America

Coffee Day

 Happy International Coffee Day!

I’m drinking it right now, and you probably are too.

From being labeled ‘the bitter invention of Satan,’ to essentially kickstarting starting the European Enlightenment, to becoming the second most commonly traded commodity on the planet, coffee has come a long way.

In honor of the beverage that makes this blog (and most endeavors of my life) possible, here’s the story of how coffee changed America via National Geographic – a story that starts, as all good things do, in Boston. 

Coffee in America

Happy sipping!
