Whether it is a place to meet with people, eat, have a break from work and studies, or concentrate better, coffee shops are popular places to do all of these things. Coffee is also known for boosting energy levels and even supporting brain health. In moderation, coffee can bring other benefits.
In the 17th century, coffee shops were called coffee houses, and people from Oxford started calling these shops “penny universities” because they could pay for a cup of coffee and gain access to intellectual discussions and debates. Maybe the reason why people enjoy going to coffee shops to study and work has accompanied the history of coffee.
