The right answer is always displayed when you click 'check my scores'. You don't need to post your answer to see the explanation.

However, you do not eat coffee , you drink it, so you needed a different verb here.

Hi,

Beeesneees .. If you there .. around .. please help me to know how to order a cup of coffee if i head a coffee shop.

there once, I've listened through the BBC radio - english courses about some terms that natives are using to order a coffee like ''long cup'' or something alike. If you can help to teach me some.

Hi Puppet,

The ordering of coffee seems to have become an art form in the new coffee shops and bars, because there are so many different kinds.

For details you would have to see the menu of the individual coffee shop.

In general terms in a traditional cafe:

'a cup of ...' = a smaller portion than 'a mug of...'
More expensive coffees may be served in 'a tall glass...'

white coffee = with a dash (small amount) of milk
black coffee = no milk
cappuccino = aerated and frothy
latte = at least half warmed milk
coffee with cream = as white coffee but with cream instead of milk.

As I said, there are so many other varieties now available, you really have to see what's on offer in each shop.

Hi Beeesneees,

Then the terms based on the offer each shop can give exactly like MCdonalds and Burger King, every restaurant their own meals, their own names. I've just thought terms that have to do with coffee is somthing standard.

Thanks for the quick reply. I do appreciate.

We don't speak of 'taking' a drink in the same way that it is possible to speak of 'taking a meal' (partaking of a meal).
