Coffee County was created by an act of the Georgia General Assembly on February 9, 1854 from portions of Clinch, Irwin, Telfair, and Ware counties.
These lands were originally ceded by the Creek in the Treaty of Fort Jackson in (1814) and the Treaty of the Creek Agency (1818)
and apportioned to the above Counties before becoming Coffee County.

Berrien (1856), Jeff Davis (1905), and Atkinson (1917) Counties were subsequently formed from sections of Coffee's original borders.

The County is named for General John E. Coffee, an officer in the War of 1812, a state legislator, and a U. S. representative.

The county seat is Douglas, Georgia
