“Wake up and smell the coffee!” A relationship or some other sort of situation is not what it seems.
Try to see it as it really is. Other symbols in the dream may reveal the truth and/or shed light on what you should do. Hot, delicious coffee implies surprising good news on the way, but if the coffee was bitter, it symbolizes disappointment in a friendship. If you were grinding the coffee, success in love and domestic happiness are on the way.
Spilt coffee implies setbacks.
