That morning Cup of Joe…

There’s nothing I like better than the smell of coffee in the morning. That aroma of a “Cup of Joe” just puts a smile on my face.

So where did the term “Cup of Joe” originate? It turns out it was named after Admiral Joe Daniels, a former Secretary of the US Navy. In 1914, he banned the use of alcohol on Navy ships, so coffee became the chosen beverage for sailors.

Now here’s the irony of the whole situation. I may love the smell of coffee, but I detest the flavor. So who creates the morning joy for me? My son, Ethan. He loves coffee, so as soon as he wakes up, he brews himself a cup. And I reap the benefits!

 

Stay groovy…
