Don't feel too bad. It happened to me also although the coffee was spilt on my 17" MBP by one of my clients about a month ago - long story, don't ask
The symptoms were the same, some of the keys on the keyboard did not work; there was also some damage to the monitor. I replaced the keyboard and all was well again.
I would suggest that it may be best to go to an independent Apple Authorised Service Provider (AASP) as opposed to sending it direct to Apple. The cost of the keyboard, at least in the UK, is approx. £90 plus whatever labour charges the AASP will charge (should be no more than 1 hour labour).
In the meantime, although not ideal, you should be able to have full keyboard funtionality by connecting an external usb keyboard.
That's what I was planning on doing, but guess I was hoping for that impossible to find no cost solution, lol.
I am using my iMac's wireless keyboard when at home, but to be perfectly honest I am a little embarrassed to take it out in public.
"Why are you using that keyboard?" a friend would ask, and I would be forced to admit that while I can hold my beer, I can not hold my coffee.
