Where Did the Phrase “Cup of Joe” Originate?

by Maurice Contreras 22 May 2018 0 Comments
The origin of the phrase “cup of joe” goes back to the early 1900s and Admiral Josephus Daniels, a secretary of the navy during the Wilson administration. The U.S. was involved with World War I at the time. He outlawed alcohol on ships, which led to coffee becoming the favorite beverage of naval crews. Hence the name “cup of joe.”
