Usage notes[edit]

  • The word ко́фе is masculine (educated speech), but is often informally treated as neuter: горя́чее ко́фе. Such usage is usually frowned upon by educated people. Since September 2009 it is officially OK to use the term as a neuter.
  • Since the lack of declension may be inconvenient for some people, the diminutive forms of ко́фе, кофеёк (kofejók) or the dated/colloquial form ко́фий (kófij), are sometimes used. Some ostensible case inflections are more common than others, e.g. the instrumental form ко́фем. Nonetheless, it is not recommended to use any inflected forms.
