"Caffe" in Italian, from the Turkish "kahve" which was derived from the Arabic "qahwa", a shortened version of "qahhwat al-bun" or "wine of the bean". Dutch traders snuck coffee tree seedlings out of the Arab port of Mocha and transported them to the East-Indies for planting; and from there coffee cultivation and trade spread to the New World and Hawaii.

"Coffee is the common man’s gold and like gold it brings to every man (and woman) the feeling of luxury and nobility." Sheik Abd-al-Kadir “In Praise of Coffee” 1857.

Coffee: The wine of the bean, the earth in a cup.

From its rather humble beginnings, coffee has evolved into a precious, albeit addictive commodity for many millions of people around the world. It is the lifeblood of nerds, and the drink that keeps America's workforce complacent on their journey to work.
Tom is a nerd, he stays up late with C++ and coffee. Jen is a secretary at a law firm, she drinks coffee on her bus ride to work.
