"Dad is looking at the coffee."
Translation:Pappa tittar på kaffet.
It means the same, but Far is quite formal. Pappa and Dad are very proper translations.
Far = father (far is actually even more formal and old fashioned than father).
Ser på means to "look at", while ser ut som means "looks like".
Regarding the differences between se and titta, they're comparable to see and look/watch respectively.
