Yes, you can drink coffee during a fast, especially if you are having a coffee without sugar or milk. Coffee on its own is low in calories and will not have a negative impact on your fasting efforts. Coffee in moderation may also have a positive effect on your mental alertness and concentration. Try to avoid consuming high doses of caffeine when you have limited food intake, this can contribute to feelings of anxiety, insomnia and potential gastrointestinal upsets.

You sure can. You can drink a coffee during a fast because it's low in calories and sugar and would be very unlikely to break a fast. But be sure to only use black coffee.
