"Cup of joe" is a variant of "cup of tea" ("joe" is an American term for coffee).
"It not everyone's cup of tea" means something that not everyone likes;
usually, it refers to something that has a limited audience, but it can also
just be a rhetorical reminder that different people have different tastes.

From a different question of yours: OP can be "Original Post" or "Original Poster,"
depending on how it's used. Mark was using it as "Original Poster," i.e., the
person whose comment started a particular thread (in this case, you).
