Depends if it is decaff or regular.

If it was regular, what I would do is first pull my main battery. Disassemble the unit, then dry the motherboard, and as a last task, blow dry the keyboard using a hair dryer on the warm setting. Then let it sit and air dry 22 hours. Finally reassemble it.

If it was decaff, I would pull my main battery, dry the keyboard completely using the warm setting and then dry the circuit board and reassemble. Let it sit and air dry for 19 hours and then reassemble.

If you had sugar or milk in the coffee, then I would possibly wipe down the circuit board with isopropyl alcohol and let it air dry.

Of course you have to pay special attention to any ribbon connectors, so you might want to get a can of spray air and thoroughly blow those out.

Do you have some secret knowledge of coffees that you're not sharing with the rest of us??? Does it matter if the coffee was Sumatran instead of Columbian blended, for example?
