I am trying to say:

I want a glass of red wine.

Is "Ben kırmızı bir kadeh şarap istiyorum."  correct?

Also, what is the difference between:

"Ben istiyormm" and "Ben bir bardak/fincan"

Why is the "bir" there?  Because you are specifying an amount, "one cup,one glass?"

 

Thank you!

I want a glass of red wine.

"Bir kadeh kırmızı şarap istiyorum" is better and more useful in daily Turkish.

 Agree with the correction given above by Harp00n. "Bir" is a number so comes before the word "kadeh" glass as it is specifiying how many glasses. Kırmızı (red) is describing the wine, so in word order it comes before şarap.

 

About your other questions:

Bardak is a glass. Fincan is a cup. Kupa is a mug. Basically bardak is made of clear glass, fincan is small ceramic/china and kupa is large ceramic/china.

You would normally have a fincan of Turkish coffee. Other coffee (nescafe, filter) would be in a fincan or kupa. Tea always used to be in a bardak, but now fincan is also popular.

 

Kadeh, however, is a special word used for alcohol. You would have a kadeh of wine, rakı etc.
