"Jean de la Roque (1661-1745), a merchant and traveler was part of the first French expedition to Yemen, which departed in January 1708 with the goal of securing the very first direct shipment of coffee from Yemen to France His account of this first trip is laden with information on early eighteenth-century trade and political geography and gave great detail on daily life and commerce" (McCabe, Orientalism in Early Modern France, p. 172). It is also noted for providing one of the first historical descriptions of coffee, which was first published separately in 1716.
