One Who Said Ha'etz on Coffee

One Who Said Ha'etz on Coffee
Day: Thursday
Date: January 14, 2016
Parshat: Bo
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 204

There are some poskim who maintain that the Beracha on coffee is ha'etz since in the coffee there are grinds which grew on a tree. However the prevalent custom is to say shehakol since the main part of the drink is the water and the coffee is there only to add flavor. Nevertheless, one who accidentally said ha'etz on a cup of coffee and didn't remember in time to correct his mistake does not say a new beracha since after all there are those who maintain that the one he said is correct. One who has in front of him coffee to drink and fruits to eat should say shehakol on the coffee first and have in mind that the shehakol is not going to cover the fruits.
