    You need to disassemble the 3DS, soak and rinse all the boards in 91% isopropyl alcohol, dry them with low fan & low heat hair dryer, and dry them some more with the rice or couscous trick.

    Letting the coffee or any liquid sit on the boards will oxidate or corrode the metals until it dies a slow death.

    Those are not enough. It has to taken apart and spot cleaned with a soft bristle tooth brush.

    Your system will hard brick if you let that coffee stay there eating away your pins and traces. Here are guides in taking apart 3DS systems.

    It's dead. Replace the parts that came in contact with coffee.
