Where does the term Cup O’ Joe originate? The US Navy of course. On June 1st, 1914, then Secretary of the Navy, Josephus Daniels, issued General Order 99 prohibiting alcohol aboard any US Naval vessel. This did not sit well with the sailors and out of spite for Secretary Daniels they forever referred to their caffeinated beverage as a “Cup O’ Joe.”
Veteran Roasters Cup O’ Joe is a well-balanced medium roast blend, with good body and some great chocolate notes.
