I always found the origins of decaf[^] amusing.

My guess is it actually went something along the lines of this:
  1. Merchant thinks his expensive cargo of coffee was ruined upon discovering it soaking in cold sea water upon delivery (who hasn't had a package left out in the rain by the delivery person?)
  2. Next he wonders if some of the loss can be recouped by somehow passing it off the unwashed masses (Like any good business owner, how to turn a loss into a gain?)
  3. Has one of his "co-workers" (employees) brew a pot to see how much they will need to mask the taste but realizes it doesn't taste THAT bad compared to actual coffee
  4. Merchant dupes the public by selling them pre-used defective coffee beans

It would be like going to an auto dealer and letting yourself get talked into buying a brand new car with only one previous owner and no engine. Poke tongue | ;-P
