(NC)â€”Why do people call coffee java? Java is an island in Indonesia with a warm, humid climate and rich volcanic soil â€“ ideal conditions for growing coffee. The word "java" caught on after the Dutch colonized the island between 1619 and 1946 and brought the coffee plant to Java. Hence the name!
