The Coffee Trader
Trader in 17th century Amsterdam discovers coffee, enjoys it, and also decides to try and make his fortune buying and selling it. However, lots of people want him to fail for personal, religious, and financial reasons, and anyone can be bribed to do anything...
Interesting, with lots of Amsterdam local references, but the effect of coffee seems a bit exaggerated
