Looking at Wikipedia - Psychogeography and Situationist theory.
Situationist theory claims people will construct situations in order to chase after passions and authentic desires thus freeing themselves from the mundane routines of everyday life -- This makes me think of the comment in Rettberg's piece about aestheticising and anesthetizing our lives.
Definitely return to read more about Derive, psychogeography -

Cook, John and Patricia Santos. "Social Network Innovation in the Internet’s Global Coffee Houses: Designing a Mobile Help Seeking Tool in Learning Layers." Educational Media International, vol. 51, no. 3, Sept. 2014, pp. 199-213. EBSCOhost, doi:10.1080/09523987.2014.968446.
A concern in the 1600s was that learning and productive work was declining because people were spending too much time in the coffee houses. Cook and Santos compare this complaint to one people make today about social media as a major distraction. It was a place where folks from all walks of life gathered to share creativity and ideas. It wasn't uncommon to sit down next to a stranger and take up a conversation (page 1). As it turns out, coffee houses were often venues for lectures and referred to as "penny universities" because you could hear a scientist talk about his latest research for the price of a cup of coffee (page 2).

Button's Coffeehouse was a thriving establishment in London in 1712. The public gathered to drink coffee, read, write, discuss poetry, politics, science and world news. Green writes, "People from all walks of life swarmed to his business to meet, greet, drink, think, write, gossip and jest, all fueled by coffee... coffee came to be portrayed as an antidote to drunkenness, violence and lust; providing a catalyst for pure thought, sophistication and wit."
{{color text="Coffee houses still seem to have this reputation as apposed to local pubs. They are peaceful common places." c="red"}}
In 1674 there was a Women's Petition Against Coffee - women claimed the drink "transformed their industrious, virile men into effeminate babbling layabouts who idled away their time in coffeehouses." These spaces were by and large men's spaces.
The coffeehouses were each unique - some were filled with taxidermy, some were gateways to brothels, others were places to unwind and watch dancers and entertainers on a stage, but each one was a place to talk for hours with strangers. Green states, "Despite these diversifications, coffeehouses all followed the same formula, maximising the interaction between customers and forging a creative, convivial environment....Listening and talking to strangers - sometimes for hours on end - was a founding principle of coffeehouses yet one that seems most alien to us today." {{color text="not so foreign when we take in the concept of social media. I'm also curious to see if modern coffeehouses have managed to recapture any of this culture, or if these modern spaces are only spaces for already existing communities of friends to gather." c="red"}}
"Isaac Newton once dissected a dolphin on the table of the Grecian Coffeehouse."
The taste of the original brew was disgusting. Even heavy consumers compared it to drinking "soot" or "excrement." But they liked the way it energized them and fueled their minds. The flavor of coffee in London has greatly improved over time.
Green characterizes the old London coffeehouses as spaces that provided "opportunities for intellectual engagement and spirited debate with strangers."
