IARC has decided coffee is OK again.  Just not really hot coffee – or any other beverage.  http://www.iarc.fr/en/media-centre/pr/2016/pdfs/pr244_E.pdf

Expect California to soon list hot drinks as a carcinogenic category under Prop 65, as identified by IARC  for beverages - water, tea, coffee, etc. over 70 Celsius.  Since Prop 65 requires safety factors of 1000x for "safe harbor" levels to avoid labeling, that means any beverage over freezing is going to be labeled as known to the smartest state in the world as carcinogenic.  Sigh....

PS - Iced coffee will be OK (in solid form)
