Just a little gist of it – the French Revolution happened because firstly, the gap between the rich and the French common man kept increasing, the rich got richer and the poor got poorer, there wasn’t enough to eat, the demand and supply ratios went hay wire and nothing seemed to work well. And so, the French Revolution took place and ever since, France has been one of the most established, flourished and developed countries in the world.

It is a staple and very respected drink in France as it involves a lot of effort in producing the drink.
