“Decaf is faced backwards”

"Decaf is faced backwards” is an obvious and somewhat popular saying. “DECAF’-- backwards is --’FACED” was posted on the newsgroup talk.bizarre on March 27, 1992. “Decaf backwards is faced” was posted on Twitter on August 22, 2009.

“What coffee is always faced backwards when it’s handed to you? Decaf” was posted on Reddit—Jokes on July 1, 2016.


Wikipedia: Decaffeination
Decaffeination is the removal of caffeine from coffee beans, cocoa, tea leaves, and other caffeine-containing materials. While soft drinks which do not use caffeine as an ingredient are sometimes described as “decaffeinated”, they are better termed “non-caffeinated” because decaffeinated implies that there was caffeine present at one point in time. Decaffeinated drinks contain typically 1–2% of the original caffeine content, and sometimes as much as 20%. Decaffeinated products are commonly termed decaf.
