This article explores various connections between law and coffee. The authors study norms, trends and rituals connected to coffee, and discuss coffee both as a legal phenomenon, as well as a lifestyle and a taste. The article charts a taste journey and proposes a multitude of connections between law and coffee that could be made, other than just the trade, environment and social aspects that we are used to seeing in the legal context. Exploring these potential additional legal layers, the article reveals unexpected knowledge potential that law ought to be able to access. The authors approach coffee as for example art/cultural heritage, as a focal point for public discussion, as a lifestyle and as an addictive taste that coffee lovers constantly chase and obsess about.
