A Cup of Joe


#doodlewashMay2022 prompts: Mug.

Did you know there are 3 theories about the origin of the term ‘Cup of Joe’?

One is that Joe was a term for the common man and coffee the drink of the common man. Another is that other slang terms for coffee, Java and Jamoke, were combined and shortened to Joe.  The last is that when Josephus Daniels, Secretary of the Navy, banned alcohol on Navy Ships, in 1913, more coffee was consumed. The sailors began calling it ‘Joe’ in reference to the Secretary.
