In brief: Moderation

Nothing has ever shown a moderate amount of caffeine is harmful.
Don't overdo anything, and you should be fine. However, no amount of alcohol or smoking is considered safe....

In brief: Maybe not

Most would say ok but as we learn more bat metabolism and fertility, the more we respect caffeine as a bad actor. I think it should be strictly avoided.
