First coffeehouse in London opened by Armenian

23:49, 18.07.2012 Region: World News, Armenia, Diaspora Theme: Economics

The Huffington Post has published an old ad of coffee dating back to 1650s, which is exhibited at the British Museum in London.

The store was opened by an Armenian Pasqua Rose, who moved to London through Paris and made a coffee revolution in the city. As MrBreakfast.com informs, the first coffeehouse in London was opened in 1652 by an Armenian named Pasqua Rose.

Originally he was brought to London as a servant by the merchant Daniel Edwards. Rose served coffee each morning to Edwards' house guests. Curiosity about the new drink soon spread through Edwards' friends, and the number of his visitors steadily grew over time.

There was so much excitement that Edwards eventually decided to financially assist Rose in opening a coffeehouse at St. Michael's Alley in Cornhill.
