In this day and age, the future is becoming more and more unstable and unsure than ever before. And so, increasingly, we’re turning to the stars to give us divine knowledge on where to go next. From whether your latest Tinder date is destined to be your forever, to where you should travel next, your star sign can reveal an awful lot about you and your choices.
But why limit it to just the big ones? Making the right coffee order can either help or hinder you for the rest of the day. Whether you’re a regular cafe-goer or you whip it up yourself with your own/your office’s coffee machine, it’s a daily vibe. So here’s what you should order, based on the divinity of your star sign.
Leo (23 July – 22 August)
Leos are the love-to-hateable attention seeking extroverts that everyone needs to have on their team. From making sure you have the best night out to ensuring your hungover brunch is as aesthetic as possible, they’ve got your back. So Leos will order whatever is in vogue, and Instagrammable. From a rainbow milk latte, to getting the perfect flatty, Leos are just there for the ‘gram.
Virgo (23 August – 22 September)
Virgos are the most perfectionist star sign, almost to a fault. So when it comes to their morning coffee, no one can do it justice but them. Virgos will make sure they have the perfect roast, ground at home to perfection. And whether they’ve invested in a top of the line home espresso machine or Italian percolator, you know that whatever they’re drinking, it tastes bloody good.
Libra (23 September – 22 October)
Oh you guys. You love a good option or two. Our friends the Libras are always looking to find the perfect balance. And so this means their coffee order often consists of a couple different options. From their flat white to give them the caffeine boost, a fresh pressed juice for some health and wellness, and a bottle of water to rehydrate, Libras are all about getting the combo just right.
Scorpio (23 Oct – 21 Nov)
Scorpios are mostly simple creatures. They like what they like, and they want bang for their buck. Taking an elbow at the bar, you’ll find your fave Scorpio sipping on long black. They’re not interested in any of that fancy shit. A long black will give them the boost they need to tackle the day, without any of the complicated bells and whistles.
Sagittarius (22 Nov – 21 Dec)
Much like our Scorpio pals, Sagittarius are no nonsense go-getters. But these guys are far more interested in getting out and about and causing some mischief. So they’ve got precious little time to take a leisurely coffee break. A good and proper espresso shot will give them everything they need. It’s the perfect caffeine boost to kick start their adventures, available in one handy 30ml shot.
Capricorn (22 Dec – 19 Jan)
Mocha brings everything good in the coffee world together into one delicious place. The combination of coffee and chocolate is the dream for our Capricorn friends. With the caffeine hit they need and the sweet tang of chocolate they want, a mocha holds all the secrets and desires of our adventurous but luxury seeking Capricorns.
Aquarius (20 January – 18 February)
It’s the age of Aquarius – we’re just living in it. These future facing Aquarians want to be ahead of the trends, while also feeding their soul. So the perfect coffee order for them is the iconic turmeric latte. Insanely popular amongst A-listers, Aquarians wouldn’t been seen dead anywhere they weren’t sold, let alone drink anything else.
Pisces (19 February – 20 March)
Our soulful fishy friends, Pisces, aren’t huge fans of coffee to be totally honest. They’d much rather drink something smooth and soothing that won’t rattle their nerves. You can find a Pisces nestled into the warm corner of their local, sketch book and pencil in hand, with a steaming pot of herbal tea.
Aries (21 March – 19 April)
Our stubborn and impatient ram friends have no damn time for long cafe lines tyvm. An Aries is far more likely to hit up their local, grab a cold brew, triple shot, in-house bottled coffee from the fridge and fly out ready to take on their day like the badass they are. And the most hardcore of Aries will grab two or three and keep them nearby at all times.
Taurus (20 April – 20 May)
Bulls are one strong, dependable and laid back star sign. For this reason, they’re not looking for anything fancy or OTT. A simple iced latte is their go-to. Just give them that espresso over ice, with milk to the top thanks. The bitterness of the coffee and sweetness of fresh milk keeps them going all day long. And sipping on their environmentally friendly paper or stainless steel straw keeps their karma in check, too.
Gemini (21 May – 20 June)
Geminis are naturally changeable in nature and are always looking for the next best thing. Always looking to stay ahead of the curve, a Gemini will be the one who’s already tried the brand new Sumatran roast. They tried the dragon fruit acai smoothie two weeks ago and they knew what the new winter menu was going to have before the chef did. So basically, your go to order is whatever is brand spanking new.
Cancer (21 June – 22 July)
Our crabby mates love a bit of luxury and relaxation. They like things that are calming, warming and a touch nostalgic. So for Cancer, there’s basically no choice other than a delicious hot choccy. You’re looking for something thick and toasty, frothed to perfection; just the right amount of sprinkles, maybe a dollop of cream if you’re feeling extra lush.
