In brief: Soon
Usually you can drink coffee as early as you can eat or drink anything else.
If you have arrhythmias post-operatively, we recommend not drinking caffeinated products however.

In brief: Usually, very soon
Usually, once you are able to to take thin liquids, which for most people is the next day after surgery.
Sometimes patients have problems swallowing (usually temporary), which can delay coffee for a bit.
