Hi! I had 3 pots worth of coffee in the refrig. for ice coffee before the hurricane. One or two jugs have sugar already added. Power went out Sunday morning around 10am and refrig. temp was at 66 degrees around 12noon on Monday... the power finally came back on Monday night around 10pm. (Total power outage about 36 hours) Is all the coffee still okay to drink or does it go bad? Thanks!

If sugared caffeinated drinks went bad after a few hours, all the sodas in every store would have to be thrown out.

No not the drink or grounds, but if you add sugar like sweet tea it will sour on the table with no AC on.
