    "I'm drinking coffee" is in the present tense.
    Something that is being done now.
    i.e. "I'm drinking coffee now."

    "I drink coffee" is in the present continuous tense.
    - something that continues to be done regularly or habitually.
    e.g. "I drink coffee every Friday"
    "I drink coffee sometimes"

     

    "I drink coffee" is a statement of fact, habit or a regular action. This is present simple.

    "I'm drinking coffee" means at this moment now. This is present continuous.
