Small note, while PLA in general should be food safe, there is no guarantee on this. It's safer then ABS.
Also, PLA will deform at normal Coffee temperatures. So be careful with it, also, it's not dish-washer safe, as the dishwasher will also go over the deform temperature.
There's only a picture of the spoon. Not the settings.
Is this the orientation you printed in? You should definitely flip it over if so - you want the spoon facing down. This should fix a large portion of your issues. Turn off support if you have it on - you probably don't need brim either (although if the part lifts off the bed while printing, turn brim back on.
There are 6 retraction related settings:
1) Make sure retraction is checked on basic/quality
2) In expert settings set minimum travel to 0mm or at least something small like 1mm.
3) In expert settings set "minimal extrusion..." to 0mm. I hate this setting right now.
4) In expert settings you can set "combing" on or off - it shouldn't make a huge difference for this part. Lately turning this "off" seems better in the current version of Cura but in the next version it might be best to turn it back on.
5,6) On the printer, you can control retraction there also Leave the retraction speed alone but change the retraction amount from 4.5mm to 5.5mm.
