Festin du Gouverneur de Mocka.[parallel text in Dutch]
Engraving, platemark 215 x 145mm (8½ x 5¾") very large margins.
Feast at the governor's residence in the port city of Mocha (or Mokha) in Yemen, a major marketplace for coffee during the 18th century. The Mocha coffee bean takes its name from the city because it was originally only available there, and sold only after roasting to prevent propagation.
