Why is a coffee table called a coffee table?

The coffee table: a short, small rectangular table that sits in front of my sofa.  This table holds so much more than my coffee.   In fact, at any given time you can probably find a magazine, coasters, a cup, and multiple remote controls.    So if this table isn't just used for coffee why do we call it a coffee table?
