Your coffee order can say a lot about you. And while there’s no exact science* to it, your preference may hint to some of your innermost traits and the factors that influence your decision-making.
* Aside from a recent study that reported people who drink their coffee black are potentially more likely to be psychopaths, but that’s a story for another time.
Read on to find out what your order could be saying about you and the other coffee fiends in your life.
Ordering Mocha from your local café is likely to say one of two things about you:
1. You’re new to the whole coffee
thing, kind of there, but not entirely. You like the idea of being a coffee
drinker, but don’t have the taste for it yet.
2. You need more than coffee or sugary sweetness in a cup alone; you need the combo deal for maximum impact.
You’re all about balance. You love that the classic cap is a little bit milky, a little bit frothy, it has a slight kick with a dash of espresso to perk you up. Oh, and the chocolate powdery goodness on top.
It’s the perfect drink for the indecisive, go-with-the-flow type. Sound like anyone you know? Asking for a skinny latte is the old ‘I’ll just have what everyone else is having’ coffee order. It’s simple, it does the job.
You’re no nonsense, no frills, no fuss. You’ve got no time for foam or anything else that will get in the way – just ALL the coffee.
This sweet little baby coffee is for those of you who just can’t commit. You can’t seem to ever completely finish a regular sized coffee. You always leave a few mouthfuls of food on your plate too. Completing things is hard, so you like to make it easier for yourself.
Soy, Almond, Coconut
You’re health conscious, environmentally savvy and have a pretty decent disposable income. You’re not afraid to splash out an extra 50c per day, $3.50 a week or a whopping $182 on average each and every year – on top of the coffee itself for aforementioned concerns, life choices or dietary constraints.
But hey, dollars aside, there’s something magic about almond milk when it’s done right. Speaking of magic…
You consider yourself to be more adventurous, experimental and ahead of the game than your average coffee drinker, and you’ll make sure everyone else knows about it – including your barista.
The double ristretto in your morning magic captures only the best bits, for a strong, but not too bitter brew.
You’re always on the move, and don’t want to waste any time slowly sipping on your coffee. You drink coffee purely as a pick-me-up, or to pretend you’re in some distant European espresso bar far, far away, instead of next to the office where you’re already running late.
Caffeine and you just don’t seem to mix! You don’t need coffee in your life but don’t want to miss out on the morning coffee run and gossip session.
You think coffee is serious business, and you don’t let anything else get in the way of the beans you’ve selected. You very likely have a wardrobe that consists of black on black on black to match your black brew and dark and mysterious personality.
