Manservant brought to London from Ottoman Smyrna by his employer, Daniel Edwards, a dealer in coffee and other goods from the east. Rosée is variously described as being Armenian or from Sicily. Rosée and Edwards fell out so Rosée went into business with Edwards's ex-coachman, setting up a coffee house, Pasqua Rosée's Head, also known as the Turk's Head, in 1652. In 1672 he set up the first coffee house in Paris.
