Basically no: Whether you're male or female. One exception -- obesity and lack of exercise can exacerbate some (not all) of the hormonal problems that may cause this in a young woman.

Is there a link between coffee and facial hair growth?

No: This is one more silly myth that has somehow gotten started. Becoming a man is difficult enough without this stuff. Your beard thickness / body hair abundance /tendency to hair loss later is genetically programmed. Junior -- don't worry about the coffee or the beard. Some women prefer more, others less, most women simply like you for who you are.

Can you tell me if a person's lifestyle affects facial hair growth?

Not really: Facial hair grows according to your testosterone level and your genetics. If dad had a thin beard you may too. That said if you engage in behaviors that alter testosterone then yes you can change beard growth but under average conditions no
