There is also "An awful lot of coffee in Brazil" (one for older Brits!)

This is a british expression?

And this is very true. As a Brazilian, I drink coffee every day. It's my Brazilian version of the British 5pm tea :)

I'm still not sure about det finns or det är. When do we use?

Try searching for 'Det finns det äre' in the 'Discussion stream'. There are a lot of discussions with exactly that question. Maybe you can figure it out on yourself. Sorry that I can't give you better advice but I am struggling with it, too. ;-)

"Det finns" is that it exists like here and "Det är" is that "It is"
