Coffee became widespread throughout the western world when in the 17th century it was probably brought over by the Turks in the Siege of Vienna and not only did it conquer Naples. In London it was a very popular drink, even before tea. Goldoni reminds us that coffee shops thrived in Venice. And in Vienna the book about coffee “Bevanda Asiatica” written by a certain Luigi Marsili, mentioned its use since 1685. Today however, neither London, nor Venice, nor Vienna has become synonymous with a good cup of coffee. Whereas Naples is. This is certainly only an opinion, but it has very deep roots. The reason is to be found in the special relationship that the Neapolitans have with coffee. It is a relationship of love with no strings attached.
