Hello penny lawton,


唔使客氣!(m4 sai2 haak3 hei3!)~ You are welcome!


Another perfect sentence! Except the pronunciation of {飲(jam2)~drink} should be in the 2nd tone instead of the 5th tone.

我老公鍾意飲無咖啡因鮮奶咖啡。(ngo5 lou5 gung1 zung1 ji3 jam2 mou4 gaa3 fe1 jan1 sin1 naai5 kaa3 fe1.)

My husband likes to drink decaffeinated latte.


The 無/冇(mou4/mou5) can be used interchangeably.

無咖啡因咖啡(mou4 gaa3 fe1 jan1 gaa3 fe1)

冇咖啡因咖啡(mou5 gaa3 fe1 jan1 gaa3 fe1)

Hello Lawton penny,


You are right that coffee capsule is 咖啡膠囊(gaa3 fe1 gaau1nong4).


喺澳洲咖啡膠囊都好受歡迎。(hai2 ou3 zau1 gaa3 fe1 gaau1 nong4 dou1 hou2 sau6 fun1 jing4.)

Coffee capsules are also popular in Australia。 Very good sentence!!

Hello Alison,


我好鍾意飲咖啡,呢個詞生好有用啊!This sentence is almost perfect!

If you change "呢個詞生" to " 呢個生字"(ni1 go3 saang1 zi6) or "呢個詞語"(ni1 go3 ci4 jyu5), it will sound more natural.


I think coffee capsule machine is getting more and more popular in Hong Kong. There are different kinds of coffee capsules and machines available in the store in Hong Kong.

Hello Lawton penny,


People usually say 無咖啡因咖啡(mou4 gaa3 fe1 jan1 gaa3 fe1) for decaffeinated coffee.

Actually it is a 低咖啡因咖啡(dai1 gaa3 fe1 jan1 gaa3 fe1), the amount of caffeine is very low in the coffee.

無(mou4) ~ not ,none, without

咖啡因(gaa3 fe1 jan1)~ caffeine

咖啡(gaa3 fe1) ~ coffee


低(dai1)~ low

Hi rgmackie,


I think you can just call it 白咖啡 ( baak6 gaa3 fe1 ) . 白 (baak6) means "white" and 咖啡 ( gaa3 fe1 ) is coffee. I hope I get it right.

Is there an expression to order a "flat white", other than just using the English?
