An Historical Account of Coffee, with an engraving and botanical description of the tree (Cambridge Library Collection)


First published in 1784. Ellis begins by describing the flower and fruit of the coffee plant. He then presents his historical survey, drawing on contemporaneous travel writing to illuminate coffee-related practices around the globe. The narrative takes in the plant's early uses in Arabia, its cultivation in the colonies, and the growth of coffee houses in Europe.
