11:05 Ideas Coffee: That Grave and Wholesome Liquor

Coffee has always been a driver in world history, economics and politics. Once considered "nourishment for the brain", it has been credited with, amongst other things, inspiring the Age of Reason, sparking the French Revolution and founding the modern insurance industry and the stock exchange. And for many of us, that first morning cup is often the most significant act of our day.
