/By any other name
The origination of the name seems to take influence from the word, "Grog." A grog typically describes a psychoactive beverage, most notably an alcoholic beverage. Historically used for rum diluted with water by sailors to keep fresh stores of drinking water available to them on long jounreys.
The Marriam-Webster dictionary tells the tale from the words first used in 1749 (Some other sources cite 1770 being the first use) derived from a man whose nickname was Old Grogram or Old Grog due to his attire being a coat made of grogram cloth.
From this first use the word has evolved and grown to mean a variety of different foods and beverages depending on the culture.

Basically coffee is just borrowing the word Grogg from other drinks. Mostly to describe the flavors in the coffee even though no alcohol is present in these drinks. If you like the sound of the flavors you can most likely find it in any store, although personally, I do not like the taste.
