Coffee and Sugar free gum will break the fast, as you are supplying external nourishment/calories and so on.
Sugar free gum usually contains aspartame, a known carcinogen.

Basically if you consume anything other than water, you are essentially living from a starvation diet, which will deplete your nutritional stores that more rapidly, and produce deficiency diseases such as scurvy and general malnutrition.

Scurvy and other deficiency diseases do not occur on a water-only-fast, as the body will conserve these reserves as efficiently as possible................
