Default Coffee Cup

Hey Y'all this is a coffee cup I'm working on.. I'm trying to figure out how to put coffee inside. Any ideas for the liquid effect? Thanks!

Could fake it with a circular plane for the surface of the coffee, and give it a translucent material.

You can try using a Wave Deformer, or maybe trying using a soft body.

Well do you really need it to be wavy? I mean i'm assuming it's a motionless cup of coffee, so there isn't going to be any 'waves'. My advice would be to just go with the circular plane option and mess with the attributes and the way it reacts to the light.
