Per another discussion, "finnes" is the passive of "å finne" (to find), thus "is found". Yes, it is found coffee => Yes, there is coffee.
I think finnes translates to "to be available" so det finnes translates to it is available or there is..
det finnes/det er = there is
finnes = exist
Ah thanks, that's a much better description. It exists == there is
thanks¡¡¡ much better
shouldn't it be: 'det finner kaffe' ?
That translates to "[it/that] finds coffee".
Can I also say
"Ja, det er kaffee"
I'm thinking that's more "it is" than "it exists/there is."
Finnes = There is / there are?
