Usage notesEdit

  • The word ко́фе is masculine, but is often informally treated as neuter: горячее ко́фе. Such usage is usually frowned upon by educated people.
  • Since the lack of declension is inconvenient for some people, the diminutive forms of ко́фе, кофеёк (kofejók) or the dated/colloquial form ко́фий (kófij), are sometimes used.
