Still not getting it...

Thsee are what I think are correct:

Je veux le café = I want the coffee

Je veux le café = I want coffee

Je veux du café = I want some coffee

Ils veulent des cafés = They want coffees

Ils veulent du café = They want some coffee

ILS veulent le café = They want coffee

Ils veulent de café = They want a coffee.

I think these are all correct grammar, depending on the situation.

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

I can see your confusion Sandra but not all those are correct -

If you use 'le' it means 'the', definite article, so if you are shown a list of beverages, you might say -

Je veux ( although 'je voudrais' which is, 'I'd like' would be more customary) le café, s'il vous plaît.

If you say -

Je veux un café = I want a coffee

Ils veulent un café = They want a coffee

Ils veulent des cafés They want coffees

Je veux /ils veulent du café I/they want  some coffee

Je ne veux pas/ils ne veulent pas de café I/they don't want any coffee

Not easy I know, but hope this helps!
