Hello YungJin Seo,

You can find a definition of the word 'make' in the Cambridge Dictionary – see the search box on the right side of this page. Be sure to scroll down (a long way!) to the entry for 'make' as a noun. There's an example sentence about a computer that should clarify it for you.

I am from Venezuela, and here the tea is not a popular drink. Here is very common drink coffee, and sometimes if the weather is rainy outside, we can drink hot chocoolate. I think that the tea is more healthy, and a small group of persons drink tea in the work, but definitely the coffee is the hot drink more popular in Venezuela.
