To be clear: kafon is -n as it is the direct object, and tason is -n to indicate directionality of the liquid being poured?

Ĉu vi povas verŝi kafon en mian tason? - Can you pour coffee into my cup?

Ĉu vi verŝas kafon en mian tason? - Are you pouring coffee into my cup?

The first one is asking for coffee to be poured, the second is asking what someone is doing.
