Spanish has a long list of funny and interesting expressions that are often difficult to translate directly into english. But what about Catalan?

Here’s a fun one! We all know that that Spaniards love their coffee! If you want to invite someone to grab a coffee with you, you have to use this expression. Its literal meaning is: “Let’s make love to a coffee” and its real meaning: Let’s go for a coffee. Catalans use it when they really, really want a coffee because they love it and it doesn’t matter for them to drink it in the morning, afternoon or in the evening.
