    make coffee

    Does it mean "prepare coffee by cooking" or "just by pouring hot water"?
    Thanks a lot.

    It depends. If you are making instant coffee all you have to do is mix and heat. If you are using a coffeemaker you will have to do a little more work. (If it's a coffeemaker why doesn't it do the work?)

    For me, it's alway "prepare coffee using a device to make coffee". I always use one of these: a French press.

    So that's what making coffee means to me, using a device of some sort to prepare it.

    I make coffee every morning. I prepare coffee.
