This is my ensayo for my Spanish class, it's due Monday. If anyone can read it and sees any corrections that need to be made, please PM me or reply! Thanks.

“Como negro tan el Diablo, como caliente tan infierno, como puro tan un angelo, como dulce tan amor” es la receta para cafe, segun a hombre de estado de Francia, Talleyrand, en el decimoctavo siglo. Esta declaracion es como cierto hoy tan era en el pasado; con pocos excepciones, la gente le encanta cafe.
Todos otros consideraciones no obstante, el olor de cafe solo es aun por encendar motivacion y energia en aquellos personas que esta suficiante cerca para olerlo. Investigacion por el Nacional Instituto de Advanzado Industrial Ciencia y Technologia en Tsukuba, Japan ha demonstrado que el olor de café es suficiente por despertarse ratones que eran prevados de reposo; asi mismo, muchos revista de salud sugiere que el olor de cafe podia estimular empleados que cansarse en la tarde. Asi, las ventas de Starbucks cafe supuestamente sufrieron por falta de olor fuerte. Un olor poderoso esta alguna cosa que personas ocupado anticipa de sus cafe.
En el otro lado, tomar cafe esta a menudo mas de un evento social que un acto relacionado con sed, y en este caso, personas podia querer un sabor mas blando y delicado. Cuando se quiere disfrutar la hora del cafe con su amigos, se no necesariamente quiere bastante energia. Café esta disponible en muy diferente sabores y se puede echar crema and azucar por hace mas suave, casi como té. Ademas, beber cafe hacer un declaracion social; hace el bebedor parace sofisticado . Por tanto, café da la buena onda al atmosfera.
Certamente, hay un inconveniente de cafe – esta frequentamente “como caliente tan infierno” y personas que bebalo poder acaba quemadura. McDonald’s estaba demandar porgue sus café era bastante caliente. Afortunadamente, hay un solucion facil a esta problema: café con heilo. El sabe bueno y es especialmente agradable en un caliente dia de verano.
Por ultimo, café es fabuloso. Esta como un amigo que se puede llevar al trabajo o universidad, o fuera con su amigos, que despirtaria se y huele delicioso – caliente o frio, café es la bebida perfecto

OK, I'm not at all fluent. But there's a few things I spotted.

Third paragraph, third sentence. You wrote "crema and azucar" rather than "crema y azucar" which is what I'm sure you meant to say.

First paragraph, first sentence. "..segun a hombre.." should be "..segun un hombre..", I'm pretty sure.

First paragraph, second sentence " Esta declaracion es como cierto hoy tan era en el pasado;" should be "Esta declaracion es tan cierto hoy como era en el pasado" -- again I'm pretty sure.

Second paragraph, first sentence "...prevados de reposo..." I think this means something-or-other resting, but I don't recognize it. That doesn't mean it's wrong. My Spanish isn't that good so it may be OK.

Same sentence, "muchos revista" should be "muchas revistas", many magazines, femine, plural, both the noun and the adjective before it. And in the next phrase after that the verb sugiere should also be plural, sugieren. Then in the next sentence "...que personas ocupado anticipa..." should be feminine plural and the verb is plural too -- "que personas ocupadas anticipan..."

Third paragraph: "a menudo mas de un evento social que un acto relacionado con sed". Less of a social even than an act having to do with thirst. I don't think this should be "..a menudo mas de.." I had to babelfish it but "a menos de un evento social que..." seems to be the correct wording. Again, I'm not an expert so take this with a grain of salt.

Third paragraph second sentence: "...se no necesariamente quiere bastante energia." -- "you don't necessarily want enough energy..."??? Maybe you are saying the coffee shouldn't be so strong? I would use the word fuerte for coffee. But this bit is beyond my expertise. Your phrasing may be OK.

Third paragraph, third sentence "muy diferente sabores" should be "muchos sabores diferentes" I think. Definitely flavors and different should both be plural. Now the difference between muy (very) and muchos (many) -- well, maybe you did mean very different.. rather than many different.... So you perhaps meant "sabores muy diferentes".

Second paragraph from the bottom. "McDonald’s estaba demandar porgue..." There's a typo. "porgue" should be "porque". As for the passive voice, "McDonald's was sued," you need the participle "demandado" rather than the infinitive "demandar". Next question -- for this should you use the verb ser or estar, and should you use the imperfect or the preterite? I don't know the answer to this. I tried the translation at Babelfish, which came up with "McDonald's fue demandado..." But Babelfish is not perfect. Also, in Spanish you usually use a reflexive verb rather than the passive voice; so I suspect there is a totally different way of putting this which would be better, yet.

Last sentence -- "...que despirtaria se..." Which will wake you up? It this case, the verb is not reflexive. "You wake (yourself) up" is reflexive because you are doing it to yourself. But in this case the coffee is doing it to you. So spelled correctly this should read "...que le despierta..." (I think.) I've written that in the present tense because in Spanish I think you would write a verb in the future tense only if you really, really meant it would happen in the future. For habitual occurrences you would use the present.

I hope this helps a little bit, and maybe someone will come along who speaks Spanish better than I do.
