A Talk and Tasting Session for Coffee Lovers at 16 New Street
April 4, 4:00 pm–5:15 pm
Join local historian Peter Le Rossignol for a fascinating talk on the history of coffee and then enjoy a coffee tasting afterwards courtesy of Ella and Drew Locke, who run Locke’s café from the Trust’s latest renovation project in Pitt Street. Find out why coffee was banned in Mecca (because it was believed to stimulate radical thinking), how it was given papal approval after earlier being dismissed as the ‘bitter invention of Satan’ and learn about the famous coffee houses of London, described by Samuel Johnson as houses of ‘entertainment where coffee is sold, and the guests are supplied with a newspaper’.
