Borrowing from Ottoman Turkish قهوه (kahve), from Arabic قَهْوَة (qahwa). Akin to French café.
cafea f (plural cafele)
Cafea, ești singurul meu prieten.
Coffee, you're my only friend.
Is there something amiss about the recordings maybe? Sometimes I hear clicks (like a microphone being turned off) in the middle of phrases. In this recording I thought I heard an -L like noise at the end of cafeaua, which likewise seemed to not be a human part of the utterance
I'm not impressed with the digital sound of a lot of Duo's words. It sounds like MIDI file of an instrument - not the real thing, and oftennimpossible to reproduce with a human voice. In this case, it sounds like an autotuned cat giving its last dying moonlight serenade on a fencepost. I'm having a hard time repeating the words when theure produced by a comouter and arent a recording of an actual person.
