'I like coffee tonight' sounds a very odd construction to me

"I don't like it tomorrow morning, though. Next Tuesday, it's just okay."

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks this.

I wonder if it is something like "I like coffee at night"

Is this "I would like coffee tonight" or "I like coffee tonight" as if I didn't like it before?

Is this kind of sentence common in Welsh? The construction "I like coffee tonight" is extremely unnatural in English, even if it is possible to conceive a way to use it. We would almost always say "I am liking coffee tonight" or "Tonight, I like coffee". "I like coffee tonight" though is very odd.

I think it is simply a sentence to practise the word heno/tonight but not a natural one.

I thought they said Dw i ddim yn hoffi coffi heno.
