Rav Ovadia Yosef: Is Coffee Bishul Akum?
The Halachah is that a food or drink that can't be eaten raw may not be cooked by a non-Jew. However it is permitted to drink coffee made by a non-Jew since coffee is not something that is normally served at a Royal banquet it is not regarded as something prestigious and is thus permitted even though it was cooked by a non-Jew. (Yechave Da'as 4:42).
