  5. Εγώ θέλω ένα κρύο καφέ

Εγώ θέλω ένα κρύο καφέ

This sentence is translated in Duolingo as "I would like a cold coffee" whereas I believe that it should be "I want a cold coffee". I believe that the correct sentence should be "θα ήθελα ένα κρύο καφέ".

You're right.
Remember, καφές is masculine, therefore 'θα ήθελα έναν κρύο καφέ'. :)

"I would like..." is a polite way to request something in English. So, either would be correct: "I want..." or "I would like...". Both are accepted as correct by Duolingo.
