An Irish Lesbian's thoughts and observations…


I was scrolling through Facebook earlier today when a post appeared from about coffee and what your hot drink of choice says about you. Following on from The Planet’s popularity in The L Word and the fact that many of their general social activities revolved around coffee drinking I have found myself noticing that lots of us lesbians really love coffee. I’m a mocha fan myself or maybe cappuccino if for some reason I can’t get a mocha. A coffee and a chocolate chip muffin = bliss! They somehow taste even better after a long day. I’d actually like a personalised travel coffee mug. Hmmm *writes a note on to-do list*. Coffee connects people on a sober level that alcohol fails to achieve. The kettle is boiling as I type because who can resist another mocha, right? Are you tempted? Can you smell the scent of relaxation? If you’re not a coffee lover – sorry for boring you. All of you coffee loving ladies can consider this post dedicated to you and your taste buds.

The following is the personality traits apparently associated with each of the most common coffees according to The Irish Coffee Council and AmΓ‘rach Research. These two organisations conducted a survey which aimed to discover which coffee people in Ireland, in particular, enjoy the most as well as what your favourite says about you! I don’t fully agree with the descriptions my favourites have been given but they are reasonably accurate, I guess. Does yours match your personality?

The survey also looked at different types of personality along with the types of coffee which people expressed a preference for…

Americano drinkers tend to be 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.

Cappuccino is the most popular coffee choice and 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 drinkers tend to be 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 drinkers who add a sprinkle of chocolate to their coffee of choice 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 drinkers are notably different to other coffee drinkers. Espresso drinkers tend to be 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, finds the survey.

Comments on: "Lesbians Love Coffee But What Does It Say About You?" (15)

  1. What does it say about someone who will order something different every single time when I’m out and about and yet at home, I’m a devout Kona drinker – make it hot, creamy and sweet.


  2. I am an Americano drinker, typically and it is funny that I can relate to some of those traits. On a rare occasion I am a straight coffee with cinnamon instead of chocolate. Wonder what that says about me?? Hmmm
    Thanks for the survey. Definitely an interesting read!

    I’m a latte girl and the description is spot on!


  4. Great post and very interesting study. I am an Arabic coffee drinker so it is basically like espresso but stronger. When I go out for coffee I tend to get a strong americano. I think that some of the characteristics are accurate. For example I do love being alone and thinking a lot but likewise I am a social butterfly and a crowd pleaser – depending on the crowd – otherwise I am moody πŸ™‚


    • Awesome, thank you for the little insight into your personality! I enjoy being a social butterfly too and I have often had some amazing conversations with complete strangers so I guess that matches quite well with the “coffee drinkers who add a sprinkle of chocolate to their coffee” loving to meet new people. I thought it was just an enjoyable hot drink but it says so much about me πŸ™‚


      • I wish there was one for Arabic coffee. I would conclude those who drink such coffee are talkative, very sweet and quite moody if they do not get their way. How’s that for a conclusion πŸ˜‰
        Thank you for sharing and giving some insight.


      • Haha that’s quite a combination! πŸ™‚ I think I get moody too sometimes when I don’t get my own way… I blame being an only child! πŸ˜‰


      • I’m not an only child but I can act like a spoiled brat sometimes. I’m glad you can relate to being moody. At least I’m honest in my descriptions ha.


      • I’m a happy and laid back person 90% of the time but I definitely can get very moody which results in me sitting sulking like an overgrown child. Not my proudest moments!
        Honesty is the best policy after all! πŸ™‚
