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!

beer on the beach

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

You cannot beat the beach. Believe it or not (which many people may not), New England has a long and beautiful coastline. Most of my high school summers were spent sitting on the Wall at Hampton Beach, getting sunburnt and eating Acai bowls from The Secret Spot. The Wall was the place to be both during the day and at night. We begin our days there with a KB's bagel and coffee, and end them with pizza and ice cream. It’s not a New England summer without that 4 p.m. text from someone, “Who wants to meet at the Wall tonight?” Nighttime is for Tripoli’s Pizza, the sound of waves, and wishes on shooting stars. Wednesday nights are especially important, as those are the nights that Hampton Beach sets off the weekly firework display.
