75 years ago today - Aug 20, 1945

I am directed by President [George Albert] Smith to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of August 10, in which you ask a number of questions.

I am directed to say that as to the Word of Wisdom, the drinking of a beverage made from the coffee bean from which all caffeine and other deleterious drugs have been removed, is not regarded as violating the Word of Wisdom.

[Joseph Anderson, Letter to J. Leland Anderson, as quoted in Minutes of the Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1910-1951, Privately Published, Salt Lake City, Utah 2010]
