Common English Expressions to Order a Coffee


We often talk about what we want to eat or drink. Sometimes this is in reply to an offer. Sometimes we are just saying what is on our minds, using coffee as an example.

Top 10 Common English Expressions to Order a Coffee

Coffee – just what I need.

This is common when you actually receive the coffee and have started enjoying it.

  • I could do with a coffee
  • A coffee would go down well now.

We use these phrases when we think we need something. Don’t use them as requests – they are comments.

  • A coffee would be nice.
  • I’d love a cup of coffee.

These ones are common as replies to questions like: ‘can I offer you something?’ or ‘Would you like something to drink.’ They’re quite polite.

  • I’m dying for a coffee.
  • I could kill for a cup of coffee.

They are similar, both are informal, and both are strong images.

  • I feel like a cup of coffee.

This phrase says how you feel, it can be used as a suggestion: Shall we go for a coffee?

  • I really need a cup of coffee.

This one shows that you are desperate for a coffee. The structure is also common with ‘cigarette’ and ‘drink’ and ‘rest’ – physical things we need.

  • A coffee would really hit the spot.

This can also be used in reply to an offer, like “a coffee would be nice” and “I’d love a cup of coffee”. However, it is a much stronger expression.

Welcome! Say hello to the world. Tell us about yourself!
