What your coffee says about you


“What about the person who orders the short macchiato, or 'short mac' to those cool enough to drink it? This is the tipple of choice for the coffee-savvy young professional. They work and play fast, so have fun but be careful of burnout! This coffee is on the rise. As young gen Y-ers take over the coffee scene, the short mac is cool and everywhere.”


“With whipped cream traditionally part of a Vienna, the person who orders this regularly is one who likes the finer things in life. They have high expectations, are demanding and a touch clingy. But they're also very loyal when all their ducks sit nicely in a row. High maintenance.”

Hot Mocha

“While this is a great order Après-skiing, it's probably not appropriate in most urban settings. Those who order it are often drifters. They find it hard to settle down. They always want to be somewhere else. They're constantly planning trips and dreaming about other places. Indecisive.”

Hot Chocolate

“Beware of the hot chocolate-drinker. They suffer from Aspirational Caffeine User Syndrome. They can be complete faux coffee-drinkers, posing as latte sippers since hot chocolate is now poured into takeaway cups. Trust issues here.”

Chai Latte

“Excellent choice for after Bikram yoga. Cool.”

Caramel Latte

“Another new, sweetened version of real coffee. Watch for the inordinate amount of hair products, tight jeans and sculpted eyebrows - in either sex. They use lots of 'likes' in their speech, take lots of selfies and are always connected. Over-sharers.”


“Tea drinkers are real, wholesome and deep-thinkers. Beware the drinkers of newfangled flavoured teas. Tea drinkers are usually early morning people and read books. Real books with pages and ink.”

Short espresso

“Another Purists Pour. This person is a staunch perfectionist with unreasonably high standards. They can be controlling. They are likely a politician.”
