Coffee. The magical liquid sent from heaven’s above to energise us on Monday mornings. It comes in many shapes and sizes, from flat white to frapuccino (for the more adventurous creatures). However, what do our coffee orders really say about us?
Are we boring or intriguing based on our preferences? Are they impacted by our daily lives and personalities? Maybe so, but we are no scientists, but simply here to entertain you by giving you our opinion. The CoffeeStation opinion.
Cappuccino, the miraculous mix of espresso and steamed milk foam. Steamed milk foam, very fancy, just like you. You enjoy your coffee to be just as elegant and sophisticated as you are. We aren’t here to judge, we’re just observing!
Latte, a very similar mix to a cappuccino, but with less foamy foam. Worry not, it’s still comforting for the cold, miserable Monday morning’s. Will you still feel fancy, drinking a latte? Of course, simply pronouncing the word ‘Latte’ is enough to set your fancy level high and above.
Flat white, similar to a Latte and Cappuccino, but without the the foam and fun. Sure, as said before, we’re not judging- but what joy does a flat white bring? With a flat white, you’re maybe a little cautious and safe. However, even with coffee, the simplest can be the best.
A Mocha, the sacred drink of the century- the mixture of heavenly coca powder with milk and coffee. A little like a cappuccino but with the heavenly mixture of coca powder to add a chocolaty taste. LOVE Mocha? You’re probably really sweet, a little bit of a chocoholic, but not at all basic.
Espresso, the base of all the magic- but should it be drank by itself? Probably not. But do we still do it? yes. You’re a solid and traditional person if you have stuck to espresso for so long… a serious coffee lover at heart.
Ristretto, a little bit off an espresso shot, the only difference is the amount of water used. Ristretto uses only half of the water that an espresso uses, making it dark and concentrated. It’s unusual and unique yet full of flavour. You’re a bit more mature from your colleagues, you’re not into the “adventurous”, pretty drinks, you’re just here to get your caffeine fix and go.
Now an Espresso Machiato, is basically an espresso- the only difference is the steamed milk and micro-foam. However, we can agree from the name extension, that you’re probably a bit too fancy for a simple espresso.
Can be taken black or white, either way you will get that unmistakably bold taste with all the intense flavour of an espresso but much more subtle. This is for those that enjoy the rich taste of their coffee and want to make it last! Not for the thrill seekers this one, more for the “play it safe” types.
