"They have in Turkey" says Lord Bacon, in his Sylva Sylvarum, "a drink called coffee, made of a berry of the same name, as black as soot, and of a strange scent, but not aromatic, which they take, beaten into a 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." "This drink" adds the great philosopher, "comforteth the brain and heart and helpeth digestion." Thus ancient was the use of coffee and cafes, which, however, have now a more extended use." - Dublin Review: a quarterly and critical journal, Vol 46, June 1859.
