we do many things well An american along with one of his Turkish friends goes to a coffee in America. The Turkish guy orders a cup of coffee. His american friend says "I thought you would prefer coffee" and the Turkish guy answers "pardon me for saying... we do many things well here in America, but coffee is not one of them. Does he mean "it is true that a lot of things in America are good, but its coffee is not really good"?

Yes, that is exactly what he means. NB Note the difference between 'cafe' and 'coffee'. You can say either 'goes to a cafe' (a place) or 'goes for a coffee' (a hot drink).
