One of the meanings of the word "Java" is a slang word for "coffee"; some coffee is grown there.

Moving to "Java in General (Beginner.)"

It is amazing what 10+ years of popularity will do. When Java first came out, I lost count of how many times people pointed out that a programming language named after coffee was silly. (The island of Java was also mentioned a couple of times -- but not much)

These days the term Java (for coffee) seemed to have fallen out of favor -- for which I blamed Starbucks. Although naming a programming language "Double Tall Soy Skim Latte" could be interesting...
