By the Mid 1600's, coffee was starting to be shipped to New Amsterdam by the British (later called New York). However, tea continued to be the beverage of choice in the colonies.
On December 16, 2019 everything changed when the American Patriots led by Tom Brady and his high powered offense destroyed an entire British ship full of tea in protest of taxes that were being imposed by the Crown Royals.
As a result, coffee became the new beverage of choice and the rest as they say is history (according to Howard Schultz).
