We love coffee. You probably already knew that about us. And based on the fact that you’re reading this article, we’re guessing that you love coffee, too. And so we’re sure you’ll agree with us when we say that one of the best things about coffee is the fact that there are so many ways to enjoy it.
But what about those coffee lovers who take theirs straight, with no extra add-ons or mix-ins? What does being a black coffee drinker say about you?
Are You More Likely to Be a Psychopath?
Not too long ago, a study making the rounds on the Internet seemed to indicate that people who love black coffee (and celery and radishes, among other things) are more likely to exhibit malevolent personality traits such as being a psychopath or sociopath. But the study was pretty small and the data was self-reported, so it’s probably not that reliable a source. Don’t worry: enjoying black coffee doesn’t make you criminally insane.
Does It Mean You’re More Health Conscious?
Now, this might not be true for all black coffee drinkers, but taking your coffee sans sweetener or cream gives you all the many health benefits associated with coffee
without all the extra calories. So, it would stand to reason that many lovers of black coffee are simply trying to stay healthy.
Black Coffee Drinkers Are Timeless
If you like your coffee without all the extras, it could mean that you’re a bit of a traditionalist in other ways, as well. You’re not given to flights of sartorial fancy, eschewing gaudy colors for classics that never go out of style.
You don’t need the whoosh of the espresso machine or the hiss of the whipped cream canister to enjoy your beverage. You prefer to savor your morning pick-me-up in silence, quietly planning the day’s accomplishments. Does this sound like you?
You Can Rely on a Black Coffee Drinker
Black coffee drinkers tend to be levelheaded and steadfast. The latest thing doesn’t distract them. Coffee soda
? Fancy flavors? Who needs it? I’ll take mine black, please. It could be that anyone who drinks their coffee without additives of any variety is a stalwart in other respects, as well.
What It Really Comes Down to, Is You Just Love Coffee
Here’s one that should come as no surprise: some black coffee drinkers simply appreciate the unadulterated joy of quality coffee. They savor the subtle blueberry hints of a fine Ethiopian bean. They prize the chocolaty goodness of a fine Guatemalan. In short, they appreciate their coffee in its natural state. And we can respect that.
