Next time your coffee date orders a venti-sized coffee, don’t be too impressed. But if they choose cappuccino, that’s a good sign. Or is it?

    What about all of us who don't drink coffee? Do hot chocolate drinkers line up with the cappucino drinkers (for the froth) or should we be seen as staunchly individual? I don't care really, just get frustrated by the assumption that everyone drinks coffee :)

    What a completely pointless article, based on pseudo-scientific "research". I could take an characteristic from each of the coffees that describe me...but I prefer tea

    Feeling quite left out of the Coffee Conundrum...
    I only drink Flat White (made with full cream milk)...ie; a capp with no fluff!

    Are we back to reading tea leaves and coffee froth In the cuppa to recruit candidates ?

    PS ...but then I'm an ENTREPRENEUR not a candidate...perhaps Flat White is the preferred coffee for entrepreneurs then?

    I also tend to agree with the comments above - a rather pointless article and not one that I'd be using as a headline act. Sorry guys it must be a lean month!

    Amusing article, but 'physicality' left me cold. I think we should leave reading into people via tea leaves, coffee drinking, food preferences etc well alone. I believe it lacks credibility and misses potentially not only a good point but also a good person. I drink lots of espresso and long black; and sometimes tea (black) which I guess explains my comments
    :-)

    Ok I think everyone needs to get a sense of humour - the story is intended to be a bit 'lighter' for a Friday afternoon!

    A good, light article. Thanks for the entertainment on my Friday afternoon! I'm off to get a cappuccino now.
