Posted by on

The origin of the phrase “Cup of Joe” goes back to the early 1900s and Admiral Josephus Daniels who was 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 lead to coffee becoming the favorite beverage of naval crews. Hence the name “Cup of Joe.”
