Coffee – what the caffeinated constant says about you
Everyone has a specific coffee order. What is yours?
We took to Instagram to find out exactly how our Food24 audience takes their coffee. From black to iced to sweet and milky, there was a lot of variety in terms of personal preference when it comes to coffee.

Research shows that the way you take your coffee says a lot about your personality. Those opting for black coffee, tend to be straightforward; those fond of lattes tend to be the social butterfly of the group while cappuccino lovers are said to be creatures of habit that like to feel in control. If you order a flat white, you’re said to be calm and relaxed, and those going for a frozen cappuccino tend to be courageous trendsetters. Next time you order a coffee from your favourite barista, ask them what they think of your coffee order – it might be an interesting conversation starting point!
One note-worthy commonality – the love for coffee runs deep and most mornings just wouldn’t quite be complete without a good strong cuppa to start the day!

Our takings: firstly, we love your style, from your coffee preferences (especially some of the interesting combinations – cappuccino with macadamia nut milk, extra hot or with sugar and Cremora for extra creaminess) to the actual process of making a good coffee and, secondly, coffee is and always will be a very personal thing. Oh, and never mess with another person’s coffee, especially if it’s their first cup for the day!
In keeping with the coffee theme of things, here are a few coffee-inspired recipes to try:
Olive oil espresso choc chip cookies
Coffee cake with caramel popcorn
Absolutely agree! The type of coffee a person drinks does say a lot about them.
I like to take my coffee with CBD and what I think that tells about me is that I look forward to a relaxed start to my day, charged with energy and better concentration.
