While waiting to order my daily morning coffee, I like to observe what every person before me in line orders. In my experience, one’s coffee order can surprisingly reveal a lot about their personality. From pure espresso drinkers to Frappuccino enthusiasts, coffee lovers come in different varieties that match their respective favorite drinks. 

Latte/macchiato 

If you’re a latte or macchiato drinker, I see you as someone who loves the idea of having a routine. This type of person rarely deviates from their go-to order and often likes to incorporate ordering and drinking their coffee in their morning ritual. Classic and comforting, a great latte or macchiato also serves as some sort of company while these people finish their projects or essays in a neighborhood cafe. 

Iced mocha

Iced mocha drinkers know a lot about the latest news and viral trends. They love scrolling through TikTok or Instagram in their free time and are probably caught up with the latest celebrity gossip. They know all things pop culture and are happy to talk to you about the latest “Euphoria” episode. 

Espresso

Espresso drinkers are coffee purists. Chances are they can talk to you about specific origins and processes of roasting coffee and are extremely in the know as to how to best enjoy specific types of beans. Espresso drinkers mean business, and they definitely don’t mess around — especially when it comes to coffee. 

Frappuccino

Whimsical and carefree, Frappuccino drinkers are kids at heart. They’re quite talkative if you find a topic they’re very passionate about. With their Frappuccinos in hand, they aren’t afraid to go to different lengths to have a good time and will always drag you to the wackiest adventures that bring out your inner child. 

Seasonal beverages

People who order seasonal promotions are spontaneous and adventurous. They aren’t afraid to try new flavor combinations, from fall’s pumpkin spice to rich eggnog around December. They surely look forward to the surprise of their first sip and will probably post their thoughts about the seasonal beverage on social media. 

A lot of the time, our own personalities can peek through and manifest themselves in decisions such as our own coffee orders. Personally, as a latte drinker, I love incorporating my latte into my morning routine before heading to my class; a lot of my latte drinker friends feel the same. However, whatever your coffee order may be, we can all agree that coffee is an integral part of our everyday lives.
