I underst& we use “I’ll (will)” when we decided khổng lồ vày something at the time of speaking in the former case.

I don"t believe sầu this distinction is widely recognized by native sầu speakers.

In any case, the coffee shop person doesn"t know or care whether you made your decision on the spot or had decided what drink khổng lồ have sầu before you came in.

"I"ll have an orange juice" would be perfectly acceptable in your coffee siêu thị scenario as wevolutsionataizmama.com as when visiting a frikết thúc.


Of course it"s also fine to simply reflect the khung of the question:

Waitress: What would you lượt thích to lớn drink?

Me: I"d lượt thích an orange juice.

You could say that but in English this probably makes more sense:

"May I have an orange juice?"

"I"m going lớn have sầu an orange juice" is a little awkward-sounding, although not ungrammatical. Dropping the "an" helps a little, but probably more common would be just "orange juice, please" or "could I have sầu an orange juice?"
