They just named it that because the programmers were constantly drinking coffee while creating the language.

In the beginning they thought calling it "Oak", but this name was already registered, so, when they were thinking in a new one, they realized that "java" (the name that American give familiarly to coffee, not only coffee from java) was a great name, so that''s it.

also kinda cool is a .class file''s magic number is 0xCAFEBABE. Open up a .class file in an hex editor and see. Although it''s pure coincidence, this was decided on before the name "Java" came about.
