Origin of Java
From Java, an island on and near which a particular blend of coffee is made. The US use of the term to refer to any coffee originated in San Francisco, an early center of the US coffee trade.
Possibly from Sanskrit यव-द्वीप (yava-dvīpa, “island of barley”). Used in reference to coffee grown on Java and nearby islands since at least 1850.
