Y vs Le

I was actually looking for a tutorial here, maybe I'm expecting too much...

I'm confused when to substitute use le, la, or y, my test result says "Have you had your coffee yet?"

So the tutorial is:

"You've already learned that the pronoun y is used to mean there (See Y = There (adverbial pronoun)).

Now here is another usage of y."


This pretty much tells me nothing.

In a nutshell: y replaces a phrase which can be introduced by the preposition à. This could be a place (in which case y is often translated as "there") but also anything else:

J'ai déjà répondu à sa lettre. --> J'y ai déjà répondu. (I already replied to it.)
Tu nous rejoins au resto? --> Tu nous y rejoins? (Are you going to meet us there?)
