In order to be accepted, you must explain EVERY line. Every line has a meaning!

You are

Java.

I am your cup of coffee

The Java logo is a cup of coffee. Also, java is a type of coffee.

Applicable for anyone

The Java Virtual Machine is available on a wide range of platforms.

I am very objective

In Java, objects are king. In earlier implementations of the language, there were no primitive data types, and literally everything, including integers, was an object.

I came from the sun

Java is a product of Sun Microsystems, although nowadays it's owned by Oracle.

After drinking me you'll be very active

After drinking java the coffee, you'll be on high alert for a while.

Edit:

and one of the intents of Java (1.2.4 in this document) was that people who used it would have high performance.

You can take me anywhere

As above, since Java is available on so many platforms, including mobile platforms (in fact, it's the primary language used to program for the Android operating system), you can literally take it anywhere you go.

There's no garbage with me

Java has automatic garbage collection, unlike languages with completely manual memory management like C.

Simplicity is so fair

I... honestly can't explain this one. Unless you think Java is a very simple and fair language, in which case my bias from working with it for a year in CS class is going to kick in and say that that last line is patently false.

Edit:

Apparently the answer is that, again, one of the intents of Java (1.2.1 here) was that the language would be simple and familiar, even if in practice it really isn't.

    $\begingroup$ That... doesn't really follow from "you'll be very active". $\endgroup$ – Joe Z. Apr 10 '15 at 22:12

    $\begingroup$ Is this solved, then? If Joe says that it "executes with 'high performance'", then he's correctly answered "After drinking me you'll be very active"? I get the feeling we're beginning to veer into subjectivity at this point, both in regard to what's an acceptable answer, and in personal opinions on Java. $\endgroup$ – itriedacrab Apr 11 '15 at 0:03

My alternative answer is

Solar Heat

I'm your cup of coffee

I'm hot (or warm) like your cup of coffee

Applicable for anyone

Everyone feels me the same way

I am very objective

I provide heat and warmth the same way to everyone

I came from the sun

Literally

After drinking me you'll be very active

A warm sun can stimulate you to be active

You can take me anywhere

I'm available in all parts of the world

There's no garbage with me

I'm a clean energy produced from fission with no garbage or waster

Simplicity is so fair

You don't need to do anything to get (or feel) me. I'm simply available to you

Well I already read the answer, so there's no point in explaining my solution, but I think I can explain the line

After drinking me you'll be very active

I think it means:

"to drink sth. in", which means to figuratively absorb something, because you like it so much. For example, if you "drink in" a book then you read the whole thing in one sitting, because you find it that fascinating. And I think it's the same with Java. If you're eagerly learning everything about Java, because you like the language that much, you will be very active in working with it, because you know how to use it.

I hope i could explain my opinion it well enough.
