Thanks for the question!

Given that Tim Wilkinson began writing Kaffe while he was in Sweden, it 
should sound like the swedish word 'Kaffe'. Which, according to my not v 
ery extensive google searching sounds like this:


I've CC:ed GNU Classpath's resident 'Swedish Chef', Sven de Marothy, for 
comment, as he's already went to bed off the usual IRC channels. [1]

I, personally, pronounce it more swabian-saarlandish sounding myself, 
though, but I don't have a nice female voice. If you want to hear me say 
'Kaffe' a lot of times, drop in for the Kaffe talk in the GNU Classpath 
developer room at FOSDEM. [2] ;)
