Pope Leo on Coffee

Recently found this from Pope Leo XIII:
And, last, delicious fragrance of the East!

With cups of steaming Mocha close the feast;

But taste the amber with a lingering lip

No hasty draught! t'was made for gods to sip!

Now if you diet thus, why, I'll engage,

You've found the secret of a green old age.
