Back to the history of coffee and civilization
Long before the development of the coffee shop as a franchise business, coffee has become a part of urban life, not much different from a place like a pub drinking beer. The coffee shop is not just a place to let go of thirst while enjoying the aroma of hot coffee, and the delicacy of a cup of coffee until last gulp. Perhaps a cup of black coffee or espresso can be the beginning of the birth of the brilliant and revolutionary ideas.
The coffee was even part of the revolution and the political changes in many countries, even capable of changing the course of history.
You may recall the famous French revolution. Apparently the revolution began in a coffee shop in the Palais Royal, Paris which is also the site of the killing of the socialist leader Jean Jaures, during World War I. As in France, the coffee shop or cafe recognized very highly related to intellectual life, politics and rebellion in France. In 1910 there were at least 510 recorded thousands of the coffee shop and cafes remained only 36 thousand.
Perhaps in your country a simple coffee shop and cafe in the mall and the hotel has been a meeting place for people to discuss business, art and politics, social criticism, office gossip and celebrities, or simply have a chat about various things without focusing on a particular issue. Coffee shops is also have a romantic date place, as well the place young people hang out, even moms regular social gathering place. The coffee shop has become a social media in the real sense.
