Cafe Conversations  -  Cafés, once, when considered sources of intrigue, were prohibited in France. Frederick the Great of Prussia, too, wanted to make coffee out-of-bounds in order to encourage his subjects to drink more beer and keep the money from leaving the country. The British, on the other hand, embraced the sowing of the bean in cafes as good for business. Cafés were called “Penny Universities” for all that you could learn from the conversations therein for the cost of a one-penny cup. Lloyd’s of London was once a café that started ensuring seafaring cargos as a sideline. The London Stock Exchange too started as a café.
