At least the computer is smart enough to figure out what "hot" means. Sometimes, iirc, the characters would have to specify a temperature
Well if it's the first time you order something then I can see all the questions. For something as routine as your morning coffee and tea I don't think it's unreasonable that the computer would just start serving up the same thing every time based on your order history.

Of course as Darth_Pinche has pointed out this may gave been a case of not being able to predict future technology back in '87.
