What does your coffee say about you?

If you thought the only thing your coffee did was wake you up in the morning, then think again. A survey of 1,000 people by the Irish Coffee Council has found that the kind of coffee you choose, can actually reveal a lot about your personality.

In a general sense, coffee drinkers were found to be more extroverted than non-coffee drinkers, meaning they enjoy being around other people, which could explain why coffee houses are always so packed! But if you want to get down to the nitty gritty of specific coffees, the read on:

Americano drinkers: crowd-pleasers who are generally considered out-going and sociable. They actively seek out new personal engagements and thrive in groups. However, they are more likely than others to be somewhat moody and unpredictable with their emotions, so watch out!  

Cappuccino: the people who drink this style of coffee are full of life, energy and positivity. Cappuccino drinkers are likely to be seen as kind and considerate.

Latte: more reserved than others, preferring to create close personal relationships in intimate settings rather than socialising in larger groups. They are also seen as helpful and generous with their time.

Coffee with a sprinkle of chocolate: these people seek out new experiences and love to meet new people. They tend to be spontaneous and prefer to take the world as it comes!

Espresso: disorganised and spontaneous. They enjoy their own company and enjoy thinking, exploring their thoughts and feelings. They are introverted but they have no difficulty speaking with others, they just prefer their own company.

So, does your coffee choice match your personality?
