In her article entitled "What Does Coffee Say About You?,"  Nora Harhen cited some of her perceptions about the characteristics of coffee drinkers based on how they like their coffee prepared.  So here we go:

1. Black

A_small_cup_of_coffee

You’re a no-nonsense kind of gal or guy. Straightforward is best, in your opinion. Your biting sarcasm probably gets you into trouble more often than not. You enjoy this. You probably enjoy sipping your cup of coffee, slouched over your copy of “On the Road” and chain smoking to your heart’s content or listening to the National. You call yourself cynical, but you’re a romantic at heart. You also have very nice shoes.

2. With cream or milk and no sugar

Coffee-Cream

You’re softer than those black-coffee purists, but you have more of an edge than those latte drinkers. You’d like to think you’re sophisticated, but you’re not — at least, that’s what the espresso people think. You have a tendency for snarky-ness but get upset if you accidentally hurt anyone’s feelings. You dabble in the arts. You may or may not be good at them.

3. Latte

You love socializing. You probably have subscriptions to several magazines: Vogue, Elle, GQ, Esquire, etc. You have tried several juice cleanses based on recommendations from your cycling instructor. People can call you high-strung from time to time, but that’s only because you’re wearing uncomfortable shoes all the time (i.e. stilettos or fine Italian dress shoes). You probably have family members who are also latte drinkers. You tend to travel in a pack.

4. Espresso

You work too hard. Stop making everyone else feel bad. Your friends have told you, you can sometimes be obsessive and controlling. You describe yourself as “efficient,” but some have called you “**bleep**.” Maybe you’re a disillusioned, wealthy youth? You want to be French — specifically Parisian. You wear too many blazers and boat shoes. You make love listening to Serge Gainsbourg’s music.

5. Dirty chai tea latte

You’re quirky. You refuse to take pictures with anything other than your Fuji Instax Mini 8. You like Appalachian folk music, but sometimes it’s a little too cloying, so you mix it up with folk punk. You aspire to be Gwenyth Paltrow or the Dalai Lama. You’re less zen than you would like to be. You want to get rid of all your worldly possessions and quit your job or school, which require you get up at 7 a.m. You’re a little too pragmatic for that though. You have a backpack specifically for your yoga mat.

6. Frappuccino

You like sweatpants. When you say you’re going to get coffee, you’re actually looking for Type II Diabetes. You are a computer science major. You’ll hopefully get a job at Apple or Google to pay for all of those future $4 Frappuccinos.
