The quote from Bach may have been-
Bring me a bowl of coffee before I turn into a goat
Or, he could have said both.
J.S. Bach's Coffee Cantata - The Original Coffee House Music
The Coffee Contata concerns a coffee-drinking daughter and her disapproving father in a struggle over her caffeine habit with coffee references and lyrics like:
Mm! how sweet the coffee tastes,
more delicious than a thousand kisses,
mellower than muscatel wine.
Coffee, coffee I must have,
and if someone wishes to give me a treat,
ah, then pour me out some coffee!
The piece was originally performed in Zimmerman's Coffee House in Leipzig.
So yes Amos-Coffee and goats really did exist in the 1700's!
