How You Should Take Your Coffee, Based on Astrology
Your coffee order says a lot about you. We'd bet our house that the dude with a beard who's worked in the lumber section of Home Depot for 20 years drinks black coffee. Dark roast, too, because light roasts are for the weak.
Each star sign also gravitates toward certain coffee beverages. Can you imagine a carefree Sagittarius ordering a shot of espresso? Don't be ridiculous. According to your horoscope sign, here's what coffee drink you should be ordering.
Aries: Make Mine a Double
The Aries drink of choice: A latte with an extra shot of espresso
Where are my Aries ladies at? (And Aries bros. Brahs? Bruhs? You get it.) Aries folks are bold and straightforward. They like what they like, and what they like is usually strong. No namby-pamby, over-sweetened, ice-blended nonsense for an Aries.
So, if you're on a coffee run for an Aries, don't get too fancy. Pick something as blunt and intense as this fire sign, and throw in an extra shot of espresso. They don't need the extra energy (duh), but they'll appreciate the more potent coffee flavor.
Taurus: The Same Thing Every Time
The Taurus drink of choice: A cafe au lait or the house coffee
Taurus people are down-to-earth and reliable, and they lean toward drink options that match. They're creatures of comfort, and having a tried-and-true coffee order brings them just that.
They're more likely to pick something basic, like the French-inspired cafe au lait, featuring a 50-50 mix of strong coffee and steamed milk, or their favorite coffee joint's signature house coffee blend.
Gemini: Slightly Sweet and Oh So Soothing
The Gemini drink of choice: A Chai tea latte
Geminis are busy bees, and they need something calming to balance out the buzz of their hectic schedules. A Chai tea latte offers just enough caffeine to get them going without adding a dose of anxiety to the mix.
The warm, spicy notes of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves blend with just enough sweetness to mellow out their mood.
Cancer: Something Seasonal
The Cancer drink of choice: A pumpkin spice latte
If Cancers are anything, they're loyal, nurturing and reliable. Their coffee order should match. Cancers tend to be laidback, and strong, astringent flavors are a big turn off.
Cancers prefer smooth, creamy flavors, and seasonal lattes are usually a good pick. If you're ordering for someone else, go with a cozy flavor like vanilla, caramel or hazelnut.
Leo: A Custom Order
The Leo drink of choice: Anything obnoxiously specific
Leos are confident trailblazers who aren't afraid to be the center of attention. Regarding their coffee order, they're known for choosing a custom blend that might make the barista roll their eyes. They'll either pick something off Starbucks' secret menu or come up with a unique drink recipe that's all their own.
Try a venti churro frap if you want to get crazy. It's made with a vanilla bean creme base, cinnamon dolce syrup, white chocolate mocha sauce, whipped cream, caramel drizzle and a sprinkle of cinnamon for the finishing touch.
Virgo: As Much Caffeine as Possible
The Virgo drink of choice: A red eye
Virgos like to keep moving at all times, and keeping up with their calendar is a tall order. That said, a tall latte isn't nearly enough caffeine for Virgos. Make it a venti, or order a red eye.
A red eye is as caffeinated as a beverage can get, combining a cup of strong coffee with a shot of espresso on top. It's like drinking a Red Bull, only classier.
Libra: The Perfect Balance
The Libra drink of choice: An iced caramel macchiato
Libras have exacting tastes, and they prefer their food and beverages to check off two boxes: balanced and beautiful. They're not into anything too sweet or too spicy, and a dish earns Libra brownie points if it fits the aesthetic of their Instagram page.
An #icedcaramelmacchiato will do the trick nicely. Not too sweet, not too bitter, and the tantalizing caramel drizzles are as pretty as they are delicious.
Scorpio: Whatever Sounds the Most Sophisticated
The Scorpio drink of choice: A nitro cold brew
Scorpios tend to be serious and secretive. These shrewd and stoic creatures prefer to be in control, and they're suspicious of change. So, they're likely to choose a beverage that's classy and simplistic, yet refined.
A nitro cold brew is a solid pick since the result should be a highly consistent brew every time. It's also a more avant-garde order than an ordinary iced coffee, earning at least a few Scorpio points.
Sagittarius: Something Fun
The Sagittarius drink of choice: An affogato
Sag babies are the bubbly extroverts of the astrological calendar. They're outgoing and talkative, and they exude a playful energy that can be annoying and contagious at the same time.
The best Sagittarius coffee pick? An affogato, aka a scoop of vanilla gelato with a shot of espresso poured over. Some cafes will add a drizzle of chocolate and caramel or dark chocolate shavings if you're lucky. Dessert and coffee in one go is a win for a Sagittarius, and we think they're onto something.
Capricorn: A Simple Classic
The Capricorn drink of choice: A cappuccino
Nothing too fancy for a Capricorn. The classic cappuccino mixes espresso, steamed milk and a generous topping of foam, and it's almost always the same.
A good coffee shop will make a good cappuccino, and the dependable Capricorn will appreciate the consistency.
Aquarius: No Coffee at All
The Aquarius drink of choice: A matcha latte
The artsy Aquarius isn't into conventional coffee choices. Some of them aren't into coffee at all, but the vibes of their local coffee corner are so on point that they simply have to go.
When they do, they'll choose something different. A matcha latte will do nicely or one of Starbucks's concoctions that add olive oil to the mix. If a shop offers mushroom coffee instead, you can bet an Aquarius will be the first to try it.
Pisces: A Daydream in a Cup
The Pisces drink of choice: A lavender latte
Pisces, you're gentle souls, and that's OK. That's commendable, really. Pisces people are emotional, forgiving and compassionate, and their entire aura borders on ethereal.
A Pisces needs a coffee drink just as dreamy, and a lavender latte fits the bill. Light and creamy with sweet floral notes that remind you of a sprawling field of purple-hued summer flowers. Dreamy and delightful, just like you.
