who is Joe?

I can't live without my morning cup of coffee, or my 4 o'clock cup for that matter. But out of all the names there are for the brown gold just why the heck call it Joe? Turns out there's no clear explanation. The term goes back to the mid 19th century, and although there are many theories on it's origin it could just be that Americans at that time misheard the French word chaud, which when said correctly sounds kind of like Joe.
