Just wanted some insight to COFFEE for general knowledge and practical use reasons...
Coffee is certainly procedural, but does it also possesses object-oriented features as well?

Quote from the C.O.F.F.E.E. documentation
What is C.O.F.F.E.E.?
C.O.F.F.E.E. is a platform independent and object-oriented programming language that can be used to develop plugins and extensions for C4D. The language is similar to C++ and Java but is more simplified, which makes it easy to learn and use.

You're killing me by making me look dumb. The SDK documentation should have been the first place that I should have looked.

While some of these OOP languages can be 'forced' into procedural paradigms (C++ by way of its underlying C substrata but not Java, for instance), they are fully OOP-capable.
Going a bit nastalgically off topic, I started firmly in procedural programming back in the late 1980s. In the early days, OOP was a magical-mystery that was ill-explained and ill-understood. This goes for veteran computer engineers of the time - they drove masses of programmers into incorrect notions about OOP due to their vague misunderstandings. C++ itself took about ten years to evolve from a thinly-veiled C with loose-OOP into a true OOP language. One reason that I leaped from C to Java instead of C++ - there were still remnants of misunderstanding and misdirection.
Thankfully, things are better.
