coffee is kave

kave = coffee (noun) (some things Google found for "kave": a common term; KAVE (88.5 FM) is a rebroadcasting station serving Oakridge, Oregon; ROCCAT Kave XTD Stereo Gaming Headset; The Kave (Art) Gallery near Hastings, UK; an unusual last name; an unusual usually masculine first name; similar Kávé Espresso Bar in Brooklyn, New York; similar kávé means coffee in Hungarian; name of places in Montenegro, Ghana, Nigeria and Serbia)

Word derivation for "coffee" :
Basque = kafe, Finnish = kahvi
Miresua = kave

This is a new word. There was not that much to work with, because I don't use F in Miresua.

I intended to post the word for coffee on November 30, but my Internet provider was down. So unfortunately, I ended up missing that day in my posting schedule.

The word coffee doesn't occur in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, but it occurs once in Through the Looking-glass, in a chorus of a song:
"Then fill up the glasses as quick as you can,
And sprinkle the table with buttons and bran:
Put cats in the coffee, and mice in the tea--
And welcome Queen Alice with thirty-times-three!"
