Like Ryan mentioned, I hope that you drink your coffee black with no sugar. It's not too hard to clean a keyboard that has had "plain" coffee spilled in it, but sugar makes thinks sticky, and it's a lot harder to get everything to feel right. Nothing worse than that sticky feeling....ugh. You might be able to just pop the keys off, but it sounds like you have a grade A spill, so taking it apart and being able to really get to everything would be better. A damp, non-lint cloth will go a long way in cleaning up the mess inside. A can of compressed air is good too.
If the keyboard is a cheap-o and you don't care too much if you have to replace it, I would 100% try the dishwasher thing. Even if it doesn't work, it would still be like having your keyboard star in its very own mini-disaster film. Will our hero survive? Will it ever be the same? Stay tuned......
