A cup of coffee is nicknamed a "cup of joe." "Joe" is probably a shortened form of "jamoke," another nickname for coffee. Jamoke is a combination of "Java" and "Mocha." Java, Indonesia, is a traditional coffee-growing region. (And yet another nickname for coffee!) Mocha, Yemen, is a traditional coffee-trading port. (And the name of a sweet coffee-chocolate beverage.)
