Blood Spots in Coffee

Yesterday I got myself a cup of hot coffee packed and took a few sips. After that I noticed blood spots inside the cup and even the coffee tasted funny. Am I at risk ? It was definitely blood !!

No, that is in no way a risk.  Probably not blood but even if it was, this would not be a risk for HIV transmission.  The only way adults get HIV is to have unprotected vaginal or anal sex or share IV drug needles. You can' t drink hiv.  Saliva and air inactivate the virus.  NO, ZERO, NO risk.

Has someone been infected this way before ? Even If I drank the blood mixed with coffee ?
Answered the question already.  Did you have unprotected vaginal or anal sex or share IV drug needles?  No?  Then no risk for HIV.  Zero risk from drinking coffee.
