"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.
