So tea-dyeing is a thing, but what about Coffee?

Quick question. I have some fabric that is in dire need of some dyeing/de-stinking. It's a curtain that's going to be re-purposed, but straight from the thrift store, it smells like mothballs and broken dreams. Tea-dyeing would take care of both problems, but as I was rooting through my pantry for a spare box of peach or lemon tea-bags, I came across my coffee can and had a brain-wave.

Has anyone ever used coffee or other things to dye lace/fabric instead of tea? Has anyone tried this and gotten bad results? What kind of color does it give?
