7 Things Your Go-To Coffee Shop Order Says About You, As Told By My Favorite Barista

If you are a regular at your local coffee shop, this is definitely what your barista is thinking when you order your regular.

7 Things Your Go-To Coffee Shop Order Says About You, As Told By My Favorite Barista

Coffee lovers of the world know this feeling all too well... you get up to the counter, you order your daily coffee, your favorite barista whips it up for you, and you indulge in that first sip. It hits your veins like electricity and if your barista hits it on the ball, you can feel the caffeinated goodness running through your veins.

After you walk away from the counter, ready to tackle your day with your drink, your barista obviously has his or her thoughts about your order and what that says about you. With the help of my favorite barista, I am here to make you aware of some stereotypes you carry based on your coffee order.

1. Black coffee

You're probably a male, probably over the age of 30, and probably have at least one child, if not more. That, or you're heavily counting your calories.

2. Double shot


You're a very on-the-go kinda person. You need your coffee and you need it now.

You probably drink a double shot because you care more about the amount of caffeine you are consuming and how quickly you can consume it than the taste itself.

3. Caramel macchiatos 

This drink is a glorified iced caramel latte. Therefore, if you drink this, you drink it because it's pretty and sounds fancy.

Any real coffee drinker knows not to pay the extra money for the word 'macchiato' and just sticks to the iced caramel lattes.

4. Iced coffee with cream and sugar


With this one, odds are you're either a new coffee drinker, or you couldn't make a decision. Bonus points if you add a flavor, that just makes you a basic B.

5. Sweet cream cold brew

9/10 times, the people who drink this beverage are doing it for the trendy story post they can make once they get into their car.

6. Americano​​

If you drink Americanos, your barista knows you just want a good 'ole bitter caffeinated beverage. This drink is strong, just like the person that drinks it.

These are the kind of people that take no B.S.

7. Anything blended


You actually hate coffee, but you want to pretend that you like it. You also think it's cute when drinks are blended and can tolerate them because they don't really taste like coffee.

Truth be told, my favorite barista is Tasha R. At Coffee Factory in Orlando! She is the brain behind all of these thoughts and makes the best-iced coffee! If you're ever in the Central Florida area, I highly recommend it!

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.


Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.


I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.

Why I Don't Believe In Religion

I used to be comfortable with religion, but now I'm uncomfortable.

Rebecca Jarrett

I’m not one of those people who doesn’t believe in God because“if there was a God, why would He let such horrible things happen?” Saying that because sometimes bad things happen, there must be no benevolent higher power, to me, makes about as much sense as saying that because sometimes it gets dark, there must be no light.
