Caffè secondo Bacon – Coffee according to Bacon

In Turchia hanno una bevanda detta caffè… nero come la fuliggine e con un forte aroma… che prendono, ridotto in polvere, in acqua tanto calda quanto riescono a berla; e lo prendono, e si siedono nelle loro “case da caffè”, che sono come le nostre taverne.

—FRANCIS BACON

They have in Turkey a drink called Coffee … as Black as Soot, and of a Strong Scent … which they take, beaten into Powder, in Water, as Hot as they can Drink it; and they take it, and sit at it in their Coffee Houses, which are like our Taverns.

—FRANCIS BACON
