How about a Cup of Joe? (Literally)

A cup of joe is a common American expression for a cup of coffee. How that phrase came into being is rather murky, but it’s believed to be a shortened version of jamoke (another weird term for coffee). Anyways, I thought this coffee mug was very clever play on a Cup of Joe. Everyone needs a cup of Joe, but Joe Biden especially; every person with phrase where their name is used is likely to be popular among many, like Bernie Sander’s “Feel the Bern” (which millennials gobbled up in the years preceding the 2016 U.S. Elections).

Attempting to find the origins of the phrase “a cup of Joe”.
