Despite its being OT, as a marine veteran of WW II (1942-1945) and an
Army veteran of the "Korean Conflict" (1953-1956), let me devoutly add
my wishes to those of  R. N. Kyle and Bob Cassinelli.  --   Jerry Green

Jerry, you old fart, there's nothing OT about military service in a home
roasting list. You and I are absolute experts when it comes to coffee -- can
you name any single thing you did more often in the service than drink
coffee?
(Unless it was to pray for a better brew...)
Thanks, buddy, for all you did. Semper Fi, hooah, and welcome home.

For the Berlin Wall crisis I was four weeks into basic training when 
the Army decided to turn all these new recruits into a combat unit over 
night. For the Cuban Missile thingy, I was riding on a troop train from 
Bremerhaven to Nuremberg Germany.  I did a short stint as an advisor in 
the Indochinese theater in early 64 before it became known as Vietnam.  
I did not like what I saw so I decided to get out.  Lost a cousin and 
one brother left his sanity there.  The one thing all future veterans 
deserve is for the politicians to tell them the truth about why they 
are putting their lives, sanity and souls on the line.

Getting back to coffee... a natural segway would be; "where does the term (in military only?) 'Get a cup of Joe' stem from?" 
I imagine it's short for Java... but Java isn't an english word is it? 
Forgive my lack of worldlyness please.

Joe was the name of a ship commander who outlawed the practice of drinking
booze on the ship and replaced it with coffee - hence - a cup of Joe('s
stuff)

neat.. you learn something new every day (only to forget it the following day)
Next question; where did "Java" come from?

Very interesting fact...
BTW...I too would like to add my thanks to all the veterans on the list.
They're efforts make it possible for us to enjoy these discussions not
to mention the coffee discussed on the list :-)

Navy lore: Josephus Daniels (18 May 1862-15 January 1948) was appointed =
Secretary of the Navy by President Woodrow Wilson in 1913. Among his =
reforms of the Navy were inaugurating the practice of making 100 Sailors =
from the Fleet eligible for entrance into the Naval Academy, the =
introduction of women into the service, and the abolishment of the =
officers' wine mess. From that time on, the strongest drink aboard Navy =
ships could only be coffee and over the years, a cup of coffee became =
known as "a cup of Joe".

Kewl!  I've wondered where that phrase originated!  Now if I only knew =
what Hoosier meant.  ;)  Dan

'Hoosier' came from orphanages... Too many councilers saying "Hoosier Daddy"

Hoosier's etymology has been lost.  Nobody knows which of the several =
explanations is the correct one.  You'll hear a lot of guesses.  It is =
dialectical for something or other.

The Dutch first bought coffee at Java and brought it to Europe - Dutch
traders referred to it as java bean more than coffee.

17) From: John Abbott
Dan, Dan!  It was during the Civil war when it was used as a challenge
"who's your daddy."   Haven't you ever eaten at Millers? It was on their
menu.  When we first got to Indiana we began asking folks how that name came
about.  At last count (including your orphanage) there were 27,444 answers.
