Lastly, coffee, this drink was very popular which made many coffee houses the center of trade. The thesis statement to this book is looking at the six different drink and seeing how the importance of them started within culture, and the development they have had. Tom Standage was very unbiased when writing this book. The book shares more facts and intellectual stories, rather than an opinion of what happen. Standage wanted to get across the point of how these six drinks had a large impact on the history of the world.
Both soft drinks became world-wide, in which that created revenue and factories and made jobs available. Going back when coke was first made, it was used as a medicine, somewhat like tea. Soda later on became as a devilish drink because of all the caffeine in it. Standage claims that Cola shaped America, I would agree with that because the drink increased revenue and partaken in many events/ideas that shaped America. All six drinks have changed the world in different eras, different places, and changed people.
This drink originated in the Middle East, heavily influenced by Arabian culture. Over the course of many years, coffee made its way to Europe through trade and helped Europe to come out of its drunken and alcohol induced haze that has lasted for centuries. This, in of itself, is a huge impact to history, despite the fact that Europe had been drinking mostly alcohol for the past few centuries and the people 's initial dislike of coffee, the drink somehow managed to take over the Western World. Those who drank coffee instead of alcohol in the morning began the day alert and stimulated, rather than relaxed and mildly intoxicated, making the quality of their work better. Coffeehouses became a social center to discuss current events, philosophy and science.
I really like the way Standage wrote the book. It talks about certain periods in our history that i 've learned about and already have a background on, but then includes the big drink in that period and what effects it had on the people in that time. The alcoholic drinks mostly had to do with philosophy, agriculture, and religion. Caffeinated drinks influenced commerce, technology and medicine. Water.
Element of interior design, design principles, layout, and arrangement are the elements of the genetic code of the interior design of the coffee shops in Georgetown. However, each element includes some variables, which are the effective factors on the coffee shops in Georgetown.

The book “A History of the World in 6 Glasses” by Tom Standage was a interesting book and view in to the history of the alcoholic drinks that helped shaped the world as we know it. The first to chapters assigned were beer, wine, and spirits, where each chapter had information that grabbed the attention of the reader. In areas that grabbed my attention was the history of how beer was discovered, where wine was discovered to have purifying properties, and where spirits were associated with slavery. There were also parts of the three chapters where I thought the author could have added more even information. In areas that could have had more even information were in the chapter about beer was mainly on how it was made rather than used.
After reading "A History of the World in Six Glasses" by Tom Standage I found beer the most interesting beverage discussed in his book. I thought it was fascinating how the location and events of the first civilizations played a role in the discover of beer. I was also intrigued by the effects that beer had on the political, economic, and social aspects of these new civilizations. "The event that set humankind on the path towards modernity was the adoption of farming…" (Standage Pg.2) also known as the agricultural revolution. Some anthropologists have even suggested beer was one of the factors that played into the adoption of agriculture.
A History of the World in Six Glasses, by Tom Standage, tells how drinks shaped our history. There are 6 major drinks: beer, wine, spirits, coffee, tea, and cola. As the drinks changed, the culture changed with them. Each drink defined the culture in that time period. In the opinion of this student, beer is the most important because it led to writing, the first settlements, money, and medicine while spirits only had bad influences.
Once knowing this it made the rest of my research more effective because I was able to find out what people didn’t like and what they did like about coffee shops. Since I could realise what individuals didn't care for and what they liked about coffee shops it made my research more
Here, we are going to learn a little science beyond the importance of Coffee intake in our routine daily life. Our brain develops a neurotransmitter called Adenosine which influences our attention, alertness and sleep. When caffeine hits the brain it overpowers the Adenosine for few hours and keeps us active for a long time. (Here, Adenosine acts
