I would not allow sako to have any coffee at all.
I think it is wonderful that you are here wanting to learn how to give sako the best life she can have.
Here is a great link on foods that are safe and foods that aren't

Re: new to the game

Hey and welcome. Yes I agree no coffee. Definitely print out a list and put it on your fridge of what they can eat and what is poison. Always check with everything. I own a pizzeria so once a week I will go home and sit with Tango, the conure, and we will share a slice of cheese pizza. I will only let him get the sauce and bread though because we use natural products.
I would recommend making a list of things that are good (almonds, fruits, veggies) and making little treats that way you never have to worry. I won't lie once a month I do allow him one or two tastes of a milkshake lol. Whenever I eat he is always there in my mouth (figuratively) trying to eat whatever I have. What I do then is put him on his playstand and he eats when I eat.
Also ironically enough, they love chicken. I don't know if you want to do that to them lol but they love chicken. Make sure it isn't fried or give them the white meat.

Re: new to the game

Instead of coffee, you might want to consider green teas or herbal teas which are safe for parrots to drink.

Herbal teas - Healthy nutrition for budgies - Birds Online



At one point in time I did drink a lot of chamomile tea, and sometimes I'd even make some for one or two of my birds. It wasn't something I did often, however.



I do recall a story about a cockatoo that started to enjoy morning coffee with his owner and then he became an aggressive parrot. Once coffee was removed from his diet, he stopped being aggressive.
