What Your Coffee Order Says About You

Admit it. You know your Starbucks order better than the password to your email.  I dont always get Starbucks

It has been the same order for the past number of years. “I’ll have a grande caramel latte,” has become your pledge of allegiance (or at least mine). So what message about yourself are you sending to those other coffee goers?

Black Coffee –You’re uncomplicated and easy to please. Black coffee drinkers are the no-nonsense types. You work efficiently and quickly. The incredibly strong taste lights a fire under you for your whole day: four classes, two meetings and everything else. You couldn’t care less about the people looking at you oddly for your order. You’re the honey badger  of the coffee universe.

Frappuccino –You’re enthusiastic and sweet. You live an exciting life, making new friends everywhere you go. Let’s face it, you probably hate the taste of coffee completely and would rather have ice cream .  

Iced Coffee – You’re pretty outspoken and it doesn’t bother you what people think. After all, you don’t mind if it’s 25 degrees and snowing because you’ll be drinking your cold coffee, and loving every second of it.

Espresso –You don’t fool around, you need caffeine now. You’re even more motivated than black coffee drinkers. Sometimes  we can’t understand the jumbled words you call a sentence. Road runner look out, this espresso lover is about to leave you in the dust. coffe some ecards

Mocha – A steamier version of the frappaholic, you work extra hard and like to spoil yourself. You don’t like the bitterness of coffee so you sweeten it up with some chocolate. You know what you want in life and exactly how to get it. You don’t care if some people frown upon mochas, chocolate is good for your soul.

Latte – You like to have fun. You can be indecisive most of the time and are happier when other people make your decisions. The latte is the little black dress of coffee; classy and a little sassy.
