The Casual Caffeine Consumer

Meet the everyday coffee lover – your average Joe. They enjoy their drip coffee but are open to trying new flavors too. They might add cream and sugar, or even a splash of flavored creamer. Sometimes, they even go for a flavored coffee. Perfect for those just diving into the coffee world!

Coffee might not be the day’s highlight, but it sure adds a cozy touch when it’s around. While they can kick off their day without it, having coffee definitely speeds things up.

The Average Accelerant Addict

Is the coffee addict drinking to get through the day, or is their life all about their next coffee fix? Really, it’s hard to tell the difference now. They might enjoy a dash of cream or sugar, but they’re just as happy to drink it black. Give them a cup of coffee, and you’re instantly their favorite person. But, deny them their caffeine fix, and watch out – they won’t answer for what happens next.

The Sweet Syrupy Sipper

They love experimenting with heavy whipping cream in their coffee or even frothing their creamer for that extra rich and sweet taste.

The Stubbornly Steadfast Snob


Hey coffee lover! You’re the type who only settles for the best, right? Mediocre coffee just doesn’t cut it for you. You’ve got your go-to brand and can’t help but cringe at the thought of Starbucks or lesser brews.

The Insistent Instant Individual

Who has 7 minutes to wait for coffee? Not many, that’s for sure. While some coffee lovers might turn their noses up at instant coffee, there are those who prioritize speed over everything else. For them, instant coffee is king, unless, of course, an even quicker option comes along.

The Definitive Decaf Drinker
