The Short Black
You don’t muck around. You know what you want and you know how to get it; it’s just a matter of doing it. Time is money. You want your coffee hard and fast. Like a slap on the cheek or a hard kiss on the lips; it wakes you up so you can get on with things. You don’t suffer fools or people who express their feelings all the time. Emotions slow you down. A spade is a spade and a fire engine is red, not “deep melon”. You don’t get caught up on details. Details slow you down. Your mantra is: Just Do It.
The Long Black
You’re a connoisseur of life. You see the exquisite details in things and enjoy subtle delicacies. You don’t want to dull your senses. You want to feel it all. You want to experience everything life has to offer. You climb the biggest mountains, you swim in the coldest lakes, you drink the tequila worm and you order Indian Hot. You’re not in hurry. You want to saviour every minute you have in this life. Your Mantra: Life is a gift. Live it.
You are calm and cautious. You like life to stay on the straight and narrow. Never to fast or too slow. You avoid stress at all costs. It makes you angry and grumpy and mean. It’s best for everyone if you just take things nice and safe and slow. You get things done, but you give yourself plenty of time and work away at a continuous pace making sure never to tire yourself out. Your Mantra: Slow and Steady Wins the Race.
The Flat White
You’re a hard worker with a clear vision. You have goals and you are determined to achieve them. You’re a list writer. You write lists every day. You love nothing more than crossing an item off your list with a bright red magic marker. You like things in order. You find joy in keeping things neat and tidy and take pride in your appearance. You’re a perfectionist but you don’t let it slow you down. People often ask you how you find time to do so much. But you don’t let on. You just smile, knowing full well how hard you work to make life look so seamless. Your Mantra: A Goal is not a Goal Until it’s Written Down.
Is that chocolate or cinnamon sprinkled on top of your coffee? Or is it in fact a portrait of a young woman stroking a duck? If you turn the cup around the other way what else could you see? A weather prediction? A sign? You’ve spent many hours pondering such things over your cup. In fact you ponder over pretty much everything. You have a rich inner life, full of many musings. You’re a dreamer. You like your own company. You never feel lonely when you’re alone. In fact, the company of others is kind of annoying. They keep talking and you can’t hear yourself think! Your Mantra: Silence is Golden.
Life’s a party and you’re name is on the list. You’ve got places to go and people to see. No time to stop. The meaning of life is to have fun and you’re going to do just that. You’re laugh is infectious. It attract people from all around. You’re never short of friends, or lovers. You’re social circle is wide and you’re always the centre of attention. Your Mantra: Where’s the Party’s At?
The Hot Chocolate
You’re young at heart. If you could choose you’d always eat your pudding first and you’d probably have chocolate cake for breakfast too. You like to laugh. You enjoy the simple pleasures in life. Clean sheets. Rain on the roof. Sun on your skin. Your feet in the sand. You’re a hedonist. Life is meant to be pleasurable. There are so many things to do, see and taste and so little time! Let’s play!
Mantra: Do You Wanna Build a Snowman?
Is Your Tipple Tea?
So you’re not a coffee drinker? That makes sense. You don’t care to sit around in those loud trendy café’s if you can help it. And why pay so much for hot milk and bitter bean juice? What you really prefer is a good cup of tea and a good chat with a close friend. And I don’t mean about the weather. You talk about real things. Things that can only be helped with a cup of tea and a chat. But with talking comes listening. The more milk you take in your tea the better at listening you are. And if you have it black? Well, then you talk so much you could probably put a shark to sleep!
