Prior torepparttar popularity of English coffee, beer, or ale, wasrepparttar 149698 morning beverage of choice amongrepparttar 149699 working class. The pubs and taverns were filled early inrepparttar 149700 morning with workers who stopped in for a few pints of camaraderie before heading off torepparttar 149701 factories and shops around London.

One English writer wrote in 1624, "They flock torepparttar 149702 taverns to dizzy their brains and a productionless society isrepparttar 149703 result." Fifty years later another writer credited English coffee with stimulatingrepparttar 149704 economy as he wrote, "Coffee drinking hath caused a greater sobriety than has ever been seen inrepparttar 149705 business of London."

Byrepparttar 149706 late 18th centuryrepparttar 149707 buzz of English coffee subsided and tea becamerepparttar 149708 preferred British drink, due much in part torepparttar 149709 outcry of women, who were excluded fromrepparttar 149710 all-male society ofrepparttar 149711 coffeehouse and complained loudly. A group of angry coffeehouse widows filed a petition withrepparttar 149712 English government to ban coffee onrepparttar 149713 grounds that their men were never at home and their duties as husband and father were being neglected. English coffee was not banned butrepparttar 149714 outcry did have repercussions onrepparttar 149715 coffeehouse business and men returned torepparttar 149716 taverns instead.
