  • Coffee, your personality described in a cup.

    From The Age:
    Are you an espresso, cappuccino or flat white and one type? A new book reveals what your choice in coffee says about you, writes LISA MARTIN
    Coffee snobs can find more than froth and sugar at the bottom of their cups - personality lives there as well.

    While strolling out of a cafe on the way to work, that cup of coffee in your hand is actually emitting hidden meanings to passers-by.

    In their new book, The You Code, body language experts Judi James and James Moore decipher what our caffeine preferences reveal about our self esteem, stress levels and even sex life.

    Just a fun bit of fluff for a Tuesday morning!

        I think it was more of a teaser, so you buy the book.

          Apart from espresso and flat white

          Would the following be for Greek/Turkish coffee ??
          It does sound a bit like me

            What I dont quite understand, and granted I have a bias, is how latte drinkers (guilty your honour) get slated for turning "a dark and dangerous drink" into a "comforting milky bedtime beverage", yet cappuccino lovers are somehow impossible not to like? Last time I looked there was some white substance diluting the pristine shot in a cap. My cuddly toy collection and I will sob into our pillow tonight - possibly in a baby voice!

            Still, as you said, a bit of fluff, or should it be froth for a Tuesday morning...

              Im another mildly offended latte drinker, but to be fair the latte-drinker is generally mocked everywhere! Those BCF camping ads describe one bloke as not living life to the full because he prefers "yoga soy latte classes" to the outdoors. And every time I grumble at the screen about how it doesnt even make sense!

              Maybe Latte should be someone who is confident enough to go with what is right and tasty in spite of the ignorance of others.

              Michus you crack me up.

                  Question: why are latte drinkers mocked?? :S

                  I love my double-shot lattes, plus i usually order this when im out, the milk is usually steamed properly for lattes as opposed to times when ive asked for a cappuccino and there were dollops of stiff foam plopped on top...

                  ?

                    I am with you, double shot Lattes are the way to go (my standard) A statement like I like my coffee like my women strong and ... but this is a G rated forum

                    Been working on steaming for Capps for the last few days to get that nice soft foam and try and get the right foam to milk ratio without a spoon, flat whites and lattes are easier or maybe I am just more practiced.

                    Single shots into 200mls are for wooses and girly men :P

                          Australians have a funny old culture. We seem to worship the gross and rough and despise the fine and elegant. Everything gets the Macho test. V8s and 4WDs are for real men and sports cars are for girls. Football with plenty of biff is the only sport for males. You have to drink until you assault someone and then fall down in your own vomit. Latte was always a candidate for a pussy drink - the only real coffee is a double espresso with crushed razor blades.
                          Harden up you lot.

                            My sport for the last 35 years has been karate.
                            While I enjoy watching a good game of footy, with the exception of a very small number, most footballers cant fight for sh!t.
                            Most of the best hits come from behind by cowards who immediately get held back out of harms way by their team mates.

                            P.S. I like my flat whites.

                              If thats what it means to be Australian, then i am not an Australian. lol..

                              Its very much an attitude of roughness, ego boosting, peer pressure, being a man, and every single day i aim to challenge and breakdown those misconceptions and promote freedom and individuality. I will drink a latte even if others around me are drinking quadruple ristrettos. And i will drink quad-ristrettos when others are drinking soy, 1/4 strength, decaf, large caramellattes. (p.s. ive never tried a quad ristretto, but now that i think about it the idea seems appealing ).

                              I dont believe parts of our personality can be mapped by observing our coffee habits, because of the individual perceptions we each hold as to the meaning of this drink for me, and why i am drinking it differs from person to person, and cant be analysed in that way. Focusing on one possibly insignificant aspect cant be used as a basis for the whole...
