What does your coffee say about you?
(NC) We've all heard the saying “tell me what you eat and I'll tell you who you are.” But if you tell me what kind of coffee you drink, I'll tell you who you really are. The days when the vast majority of Canadians thought of coffee only as a cup of filtered or instant coffee are long gone. Specialized coffee shops have become very popular and recently, single-serving systems like the Keurig systems, have taken up residence on Canadians' kitchen counters. Customers are discovering a wide variety of coffee products and enjoying high-quality coffee in the comfort of their own home.
According to survey results from the book The You Code and the website time.com, your type of coffee can say a lot of things about your personality. If you want to know something about someone you just met or are wondering what that handsome gentleman who just ordered a macchiato might be into, read these matching coffee-personalities:
• Latte drinker: These people like to please others, and are often indecisive. They tend to be neurotic. Sound like anyone you know? Perhaps your best friend who can never ever decide what to order at a restaurant? Take the lead: order her a latte.
• Cappuccino drinker: Obsessive and controlling, they are also creative, honest, and motivated. They make excellent friends but get bored with unimaginative people. Sound like your boss? Or that nosy, control freak colleague of yours? Next time you buy them a coffee, make it a cappuccino, and they'll be in seventh heaven.
• Mocaccino drinker: These folks are ready to try anything. Considered to be trendsetters, they're also adventurous and courageous, and like to indulge themselves when it comes to food. Let's face it: We all dream of being this person. So bring on the mocaccinos.
• Macchiato drinker: Cerebral and refined, they linger over life's small pleasures. You can rely on them in any situation. So next time someone orders a macchiato, pay attention.
These results might not be true for everyone but with all the varieties of coffee available today, you're sure to find one you love. The new Van Houtte Specialty Collection offers these specialty coffees, designed for Keurig K-Cup systems. You can find them on Keurig.ca, in grocery stores and certain retailers.
