I would pull the consol now and make sure there isn't any coffee ice in there.

Get a stiff brissle detailing brush, carpet cleaner (auto glym or chem guys), and steam. You'll have to put in some Elbow  grease to get it all out.

If it still stinks I would pull the carpet and pressure wash it. I did that with my old cross sport seats that were heavily coffee stained and they turned out great.

Thanks..  I don't have access to a garage and won't have one of my own until Spring..

For steam, if I'm filling the carpet with steam will I need an extractor to dry it out?  Quite new to this process.. I don't eat or drink in my car..

So a company out of Poland sent me a care package of some pressurized sprayers to do some product reviews on... unfortunate thing is they don't ship or sell these anywhere in USA or Canada.... ;D

I guess they're hoping to target an EU audience or customer base.. Ah well, they're still pretty damn cool, especially the battery powered pressurizer (they each have interchangeable foaming tips with different levels of thickness.. I have yet to really try them out, but might get a chance this weekend.)  Would be pretty sweet for a 1 bucket wash method...

The hand pump 2000 would probably be my go to for either wheels/wheel wells and engine bay cleaning (with an APC) or used on the paint as a pre-soak.
