What If Coffee Was Banned?
For many coffee lovers, imagining going just one day without a cup of their favorite coffee seems impossible. Many of us depend on coffee to get us going in the morning, to get us past that midday slump, to help us focus on studying, and so much more. Can you imagine what life would be like if consuming coffee were illegal?
Believe it or not, there were times when coffee was banned. For example, in the year 1511 leaders in Mecca outlawed coffee because they thought that it stimulated radical thinking. This wasn’t the last time coffee was outlawed, either.
During the 16th-century some Italian clergymen thought that coffee was “satanic” and tried to have it banned. Fortunately for Italian coffee lovers at the time, Pope Clement VII was an avid coffee lover himself. He lifted the ban and even had coffee baptized in 1600.
In the 18th century, coffee and coffee paraphernalia such as coffee cups and other dishes were made illegal in Sweden. This was because of coffee’s supposed ties to rebellious sentiment in the country at the time.
Remembering the challenges coffee has faced over its history makes us all the more grateful to have access to this delicious, energizing drink.
