In the early 1600s, travelers, traders, scholars and doctors contributed to making coffee known in Europe. In Italy, it was introduced by Venetian merchants and immediately became a ritual, so much so that in 1640 the first coffee shop was born in Venice.

Since then the coffees spread throughout Europe, and in Italy the Caffè Florian in Venice, the Greco in Rome, the Pedrocchi in Padua and the San Carlo in Turin were born, which contributed to spreading the reputation of coffee as an intellectual drink.
