Coffeehouse Tour

Found this interesting podcast but unfortunately couldnt find a complete one so the deprivation for rest of the series was drenched by the podcast by the Guardian.
Meet the owner of London’s first coffeehouse, Pasqua Roseé, and plunge into the caffeinated world of 17th-century London…head first. The first episode of an immersive audio adventure from Unreal City Audio exploring the origins of London’s love affair with coffee. It will stimulate body and mind.

Episode two of the Coffeehouse Tour, an audio adventure from Unreal City Audio exploring how a bitter black drink from Turkey revolutionized the lives of Londoners in the 17th and 18th centuries. In episode 2, the runaway success of Pasqua Rosee’s coffee business infuriates the local vicar, no friend to caffeine. For how much longer can Christianity and Coffee coexist in the same ancient churchyard? Designed to be enjoyed at home or taken on location in St Michael’s Churchyard in the City of London.
