Tea or coffee for a cough

Which would be better? I have a horrible throaty cough for the past 5 days. today I had hard thick green bits coming from my throat when brushing. Need to sooth it. would a latte be better?

I quite like the twinings raspberry and echinacea tea when I have a cold. Just don't have it scalding hot.

Milk will not help. It will just coat your phlegm with fat molecules.

Drink herbal tea. Lemon and ginger is good for a sore throat.
