William Shakespeare had a way with words. Through his pioneering collection of plays and sonnets, the Stratford-native radically altered the English language, introducing a whole host of new phrases to our lexicon.
A subtle alteration to the dialogue in Henry V reveals that the title character has a rather large sum of money set aside for his favourite beverage, as the Archbishop of Canterbury notes:
A hundred alms-houses right well supplied
And to the coffee of the King, beside
A thousand pounds by th’ year: thus runs the bill!”
Well, fortunately you do not have to replicate the King’s superimposed spending when it comes to buying coffee!
