1. CoffeeScript is just a language that gets "compiled" into JavaScript,
nothing more.
2. You can use jQuery/AJAX with or without CoffeeScript.

Use of CoffeeScript is completely optional. If you like the syntax and
features of CoffeeScript then use CoffeeScript, if not then use
JavaScript. The user's browser will only ever see JavaScript, given
browsers don't know what CoffeeScript is.
