Koppi Juseyo mentioned in other blogs

A little experiment onto Google: search "koppi juseyo" as I am spelling it this way.

Here are the interesting results and important snippets/quotes:

커피 드실래요? (Would you like some coffee?)

A few months later we were telling our Korean friends all of the Korean words and expressions that we knew.  We told them that we were getting along fine and could even order our own coffee.  “KOPI JUSEYO” we exclaimed.  Our friends erupted in uncontrollable laughter.  Apparently we were supposed to say “kuhpi” (커피), not “kopi” (코피).  The whole time we had been asking for bloody noses, not coffee.
