COFFEE (Component Object Model For Extension) is a JavaScript compiler for Adobe After Effects used to write scripts that automate the software's tasks and add custom functionality. The language enables users to generate code within AE's ExtendScript scripting environment, which runs commands in the background of the application without having to directly interact with its graphical user interface. COFFEE was introduced in After Effects 5.0 and was later replaced by an ECMAScript engine.
