Yes, of course you can have coffee a half and hour after your pill. You can add milk to it too!
No coffee, juice, tea, etc. as plain water is needed. About 8oz. This washes the pill into your stomach so it does not dissolve in the throat or get caught. I gulp it down. Sipping is not the method. The pill dissolves quickly and you would not get a proper dose with other things in the stomach. The half hour is needed for full absorption.
I know you can't just stop coffee if you drink alot. You can drunk it just not for ahalf hr after you take your pill.
