correction of statement
Correct Form of the statement
I prefer coffee than tea
The previous answers are correct. The issue is that "than" is used for comparisons of a particular quality or quantity. So you'd use "than" if you were to say "I like coffee more than I like tea" or "Coffee tastes better than tea." The former has you comparing how much you like each, and the latter compares their taste.
"Prefer" has that comparison built into it, so "than" is not necessary. You could swap out "prefer [it]" for "like [it] more than."
