Default Is coffee permitted before Mass?

Is a cup of coffee on the way to Mass permitted? I consider it just like water but my daughter argues that it is not permitted to drink coffee before Mass.

Default Re: Is coffee permitted before Mass?

The rule is that there is a one hour fast from all food and liquids before Communion (not before Mass). The only exceptions to this rule are water and medicine. Those who have medical conditions that make such a fast dangerous are exempt from the fast. If you can finish your coffee at least one hour before Communion, then it is fine to drink it on the way to church. Otherwise, coffee does break the Communion fast.
