Decent presentation. Interesting excerpt:
"Across the Channel the British took a more, well, British approach to
coffee cookery: Seventeenth-century diarist Samuel Pepys wrote of Londoners
larding their coffee with butter, mustard, oatmeal, and ale."
Which could explain why tea became so popular in Britain!

I had an English drink in my old coffeehouse that was pretty popular that 
used butter.  Basically a double shot of espresso, steamed milk, honey, 
cinnamon with a small dab of real butter floating on top to melt.  Most were 
served at breakfast time.  It's not coffee, but it was good.

But when did the British really bring anything to the table that was
terribly exciting?
