Amazing American Stories
We write about unheard American stories to honor our great country. Many of our stories cover the founding fathers, and the birth of our nation. In some of these stories, we tie in coffee and the major role it played in our country. So enjoy a delicious cup of coffee, and read the latest iconic American story:
Washington doubts his abilities
In 1775, the movement for American Independence was strong and conflict between the British and Americans was already hot and heavy. Congress appointed George Washington as Commander in Chief of the Continental Army and despite Washington's doubts of his own abilities in the position, he led the American troops in a surprise attack at Trenton and America to victory.
Coffee as an act of rebellion
Coffee has a long tradition of being in bed with a "dangerous" activity... thinking. So much thinking and discourse occurs over coffee that coffee houses were called “seminaries of sedition” by King Charles II, who also ordered the suppression of such establishments in 1675. This behavior carried over into the coffee houses of America where Washington and our other founding fathers architected independence.
"Coffee- the favorite drink of the civilized world." - Thomas Jefferson
