The Legend of Joe
Legend has it that "coffee" got the nickname of "Joe" when in 1914, Secretary of the Navy Josephus Daniels banned alcohol on board Navy ships. Up until that time, rum was a daily ration for Sailors. So the only thing left, the strongest thing, was coffee. The Sailors began calling it "Joe" as a form of mockery.
No matter how coffee became known as Joe, the name stuck.
