Caffeine Trivia 03.25.14

In 1732 coffee had become such a popular and controversial drink that Johann Sebastian Bach wrote his very humorous Coffee Cantata in which the daughter begs her father to allow her favorite vice:

“Dear father, do not be so strict! If I can’t have my little demi-tasse of coffee three times a day, I’m just like a dried up piece of roast goat!  Ah!  How sweet coffee tastes!  Lovelier than a thousand kisses, sweeter far than muscatel wine!   I must have my coffee, and if anyone wishes to please me, let him present me with – coffee!”

Personal note: A girl after my own heart….maybe I was her in a previous life!  Ha, ha!
