Yes, it is Arabic, but if memory serves right, it is of Turkish origin; definitely not in BH.

Qahwah is Arabic for coffee,

I remember some time back coming across a theory that presented evidence
for
coffee being mentioned in the Bible. From memory, it picked up on the
word
QAHWAH. I've done searches and can't seem to find the word.

Does anyone know of this argument and/or the Biblical references
invovled?
