Our relationship with caffeine goes back exactly three centuries. In 1717, a Scottsman named John Law came to Louisiana exploring for opportunities to grow his tea and coffee importing business. A year later, he was to play a critical role in assisting his friend, Mr. Bienville, with the founding of New Orleans.
