Can “not…either” be used in a interrogative sentence? Does this sentence “Do you not like coffee either?” sound natural to you?

Thank you very much!

If the person you are speaking to has just expressed a dislike of something that would normally be grouped with coffee, then yes, that sentence would be perfectly fine:

"Would you like some tea?"

"Tea! Blech! Can't stand the stuff. Why anybody would want to take perfectly good water and pollute it with bits of dead vegetation is beyond me."

"I see. Do you not like coffee either?"

"Oh, I can't live without my coffee. One cream, no sugar, please."
