Bob Dylan's Thoughts on Coffee


"You know, at one time coffee was believed to be the drink of the devil. When Pope Vincent III heard about this, he decided to taste the drink before banning it. In fact, he enjoyed coffee so much he wound up baptizing it, stating, 'Coffee is so delicious it would be a pity to let the infidels have exclusive use of it'. I also feel that way about coffee".
-Bob Dylan

"One more cup of coffee before I go/ to the valley below"
-From the song One More Cup of Coffee

"He was wearing blue jeans and a white tank-top T-shirt, and drinking coffee out of a glass. 'It tastes better out of a glass,' he said grinning".
-1991 Interview with Paul Zollo
