Coffea arabica, Coffea Cruda
- coffée (rare)
From Dutch koffie (“coffee”) [from 1582], from Ottoman Turkish قهوه (kahve, “coffee”), from Arabic قَهْوَة (qahwa, “coffee, a brew”). The Arabic word originally referred to wine, a drink which was traditionally mixed and served hot in a similar manner. In Arabic "to brew" utilizes the same triliteral root as wine and intoxicant; see خ م ر (ḵ-m-r) to cover over, presumably with hot water. Other sources instead claim it traces back to the name of the Kaffa region...
