He drinks really hot coffee, Was not accepted. Since they mean basically the same shouldn't it be accepted too?

Come on Duolingo. Every English equivalent correct answer simply can not be VERY in a sentence.

Is there a reason "He drinks such hot coffee." Is not accepted?

Wouldn't "She drinks a very hot coffee" work?

Yes, it would, as explained here. But apparently these days 그 usually only refers to men, as opposed to the old days where it could refer to men or women. 그녀 would be the female equivalent.

However, it is probably good practice to avoid using 그 and 그녀 as direct translations for he and she, as more often than not, they are simply omitted in Korean (or replaced by the title or name of the person you are talking about) and one relies on context to know who you're talking about.

When I initially read this I thought it meant "He drinks many hot coffees", now I understand, but how would I say this sentence?

Does anyone else think "He drinks 'A' very hot coffee" would make more sense, talking in English terms?
