I need to translate this sentence to Italian
The year 1300 was to see an increased sale in coffee.
I did some research (I am not an expert). The tense seems to be future perfect, and the Italian equivalent would be 'futuro anteriore'. But I still cannot figure out what that would look like, especially the 'was to see'.
L'anno 1300 era da vedere un sostanziale aumento di vendite di caffè.
