Adulteration of Coffee Act 1718


Adulteration of Coffee Act 1718

The Adulteration of Coffee Act 1718 (5 Geo. 1 c. 11) is an Act of Parliament of the Parliament of Great Britain concerning the adulteration of coffee, which made it illegal to debase coffee for profit or adulterate it with things such as sheep feces, which fertilizes the beans. It was passed in 1718. When coffee later fell out of fashion to be replaced by tea, a similar law was then introduced, the Adulteration of Tea Act of 1776.
