Assuming your coffee plant is indoors, I would think that the problem could be lack of humidity. The symptoms you describe are commonly associated with the dry heated air found in most homes. If it isn’t lack of humidity, the problem ccould be rust.. If it is rust, ground cinnamon, neem oil or an all-purposr fungicide should work.
