It can be countable and uncountable.
It depends on the context.


For example,

when it's uncountable the meaning: a drink made with ground, roasted seeds.

Example sentence: How much coffee do you drink every day?

when it's countable the meaning: one cup of coffee.

Example sentence: How many coffees did we order altogether?"

It depends on the kind of sentence. It can be both countable and uncountable
