Help me dye my shirt with coffee!

I have this fabulous fitting, great quality white shirt - with a very very permanent very light brownish/greyish stain on the shoulder. So I've been thinking of dyeing the shirt using coffee - i figure I like the colour of my other accidental coffee stains, now I just have to do it on purpose. Help me do it right, the first time!

I obviously can't dye a test swatch, since I don't have another piece of fabric that's the same as my shirt. So I want to do it as well as I can, the first time! Any advice would be appreciated!
The stain on the shoulder is pretty light - visible enough that I can't really wear this shirt anymore as a "nice white shirt", but light enough that I don't think it will show through any dyeing. The fabric is 100% cotton.
I'd like to make the colour as even as possible - or, if I can't, then 'evenly mottled'.
