From Istanbul to Oxford - The Origins of Coffee Drinking in England

From Istanbul to Oxford - The Origins of Coffee Drinking in England is a free display in Gallery 29 at The Ashmolean

The first coffee house in England opened in Oxford in 1651, but the story of coffee began many years earlier in the Ottoman Empire. Discover how coffee made its way to England through an exploration of both Ottoman coffee-related objects and English adaptations, which illustrate the fascinating and complex relationship between the two powers at the time.
