Find out what your favorite coffee reveals about your personality


The type of coffee you drink is actually in direct correlation to your personality. Coffee makes us feel so good because it is able to tap into virtually every reward system our brain has evolved. It makes total sense that there is a connection between the mind and the type of coffee we drink.

Of course, a person who loves to order a Frappuccino will be much different than someone who orders black coffee.

There might be more to this story. A recent study examined one thousand coffee drinkers and associated personality traits and types with their coffee preferences. There were some overall similarities and rather interesting discoveries that showed up amidst the preferred coffee styles, revealing a deeper insight into the choices we make and the (coffee) people we are. So only one question remains: what does your coffee choice say about you?

You’re straightforward, a straight shooter, you like things black and white. You don’t mess around, but people like that about you – you’re reliable. You invented minimalism, you can err on the side of quiet (and potentially moody) but you set your sights on something and it is yours. You may be somewhat serious, but you always get the job done. Just remember to have a tiny bit of milk in your coffee once in a while to lighten things up.

Personality traits belonging to cappuccino drinkers revealed some definite signs of wanting control. If cappuccino is your coffee of choice, you might be a bit obsessive, though highly creative and motivated. Honesty also comes hand in hand with the control, so at least you know what you’re getting with that top of froth! You tend to grow bored easily, even though you are loyal to your friends.

Quick and easy and to the point! You’re always in a hurry, so you like your coffee strong and fast and on the go. You’re a leader, you’re hard working, but you need constant hits throughout the day, lest you get moody and broody — which you have a tendency to do. You know how to get what you want and you’re always on the way to getting there. Just remember to have one day a week to slow down, or you might burn out.

Mocha is a close cousin of both coffee and hot chocolate. Mocha drinkers are perfectionists, trendsetters and spontaneous. Mocha has a sweet and bitter chocolate flavor and people who regard mocha as their favorite flavor of coffee also like the blend of sweet and bitter in their lives.

Iced coffee…the black coffee’s cousin. Just like the black coffee drinkers, you have a take-charge attitude and don’t have time for drama. You can be serious but also know when to have fun. Your confidence allows you to embrace an iced coffee all year round.

You like things to come easy, and you can be indecisive at the best of times. You are a bit of a fence sitter, you prefer to be a team player rather than the person calling the shots. You keep things smooth and light, but you’re fun to be around and things are never too hard. Maybe try ice cream instead of milk some time though – do something wild and crazy instead of just sticking to the norm.

If you avoid coffee you are afraid to experiment. You like to create a comfort zone and not go beyond it. Often checked in on every detail, you can become tired of yourself and others.
