The Coffee Cantata with a libretto by Picander, is among the best-known and most frequently performed of Bach's secular cantatas. Written in or around 1733, the Coffee Cantata deals humorously with the importance of the newly fashionable beverage. This is demonstrated in the soprano aria "Ah, how sweet the coffee tastes, lovelier than a thousand kisses, milder than Muscatel".
