ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the coffee houses in Great Britain. Coffee shops are now springing up all over Britain. This is not the first time that coffee houses have been so popular. The seventeenth-century coffee house contributed to England's rise to global greatness. The first English coffee house was opened in 1652 by a Greek Orthodox servant from western Turkey, Pasqua Rosee, in the City of London. Coffee shops both reflects the specific character of their locality and reinforces it, such as business, the church, politics or the arts. Coffee houses are a reflection of the emerging middle class, with its emphasis on discussion, exploration of ideas, sobriety and refined sociability.
