When coffee was brought to America from England, it wasn't that popular. While some people drank coffee, it was more common to drink tea.
To protest "taxation without representation", Americans stopped drinking tea from Britain. Instead of drinking tea, more Americans started to drink coffee. Ever since, the Boston Tea Party, coffee continued to get more and more popular.
DON'T DRINK THE TEA!
YEAH! Let's drink coffee instead!
Coffee has a big role in pop culture and it is a part of people's everyday lives. It is constantly being talked about and posted on social media. Also, coffee is used as a way to gather together with friends. A group of people meeting together at a trendy coffee shop is a part of pop culture because lots of coffee shops are considered popular.
