About Coffee1652


The history of coffee and coffee houses in London is particularly revealing of how coffee shaped the emergence of modern society. The first coffee house opened in London in 1652. A man named Bowman, servant to a merchant in the Turkey trade, opened it in partnership with Pasqua Rosee in St. Michael’s Alley, Cornhill. An advertising handbill from the shop, The Vertue of the Coffee Drink, is preserved in the British Museum.

Over 300 years of coffee development and knowledge.

The tantalising aromas from the latest batch of our freshly roasted coffee beans combine all of that history and over 300 years of coffee development and knowledge to produce the premium & superior quality coffees that we roast for our clients today.
