Can a berachah made before or while in the process of making another food item of the same category cover the food being prepared drink? For example if someone is making a cup of coffee and recites a blessing over water before the coffee is made, should another blessing be recited?

Thank you


The bracha on the water will cover the coffee, The rule is that if you had a specific food in mind, that it is included in your bracha.

As a side point though, when a person drinks water and doesn’t really want the water and isn’t thirdsy, but only drinking it to help swallow some medication etc. then we don’t say a bracha on that water. Therefore if sdome one wants to say a shehakol because he has a seek regarding berachos, he should not use water for this purpose.
