Kaffée vs. Káffee https://i.imgur.com/lnLU5og.jpg
gf tells me that Kaffée feels fancier to her, because it sounds ‘French’. This Germanic/Romance accent binary plays exactly the opposite way in Brazil; e.g. we have ‘sociál’ but a bank product might use ‘sócial’ to make it feel English and therefore fancy.
I think Káffee is cooler anyway because then you can distinguish /ˈkafe/ (drink) from. /kaˈfeː/(location) :)
@melissaboiko where i was born, they say ['kafε] or ['kafə] and i soo love making fun of it
