Learning the traits of your star sign is an interesting way to find out more about your personality, and in this case, we’re looking at flavoured coffee. From caramel to gingerbread, chocolate to chai, you can tell a lot about a person based on their taste preference.
Beanies, the UK flavoured coffee company, has teamed up with London-based celebrity psychic and astrologer Inbaal Honigman to help you to discover the coffee flavour best suited to you, according to the stars.
“Your star sign doesn’t define you – you are a unique person unlike any other. But many of your traits, leanings and quirks can be predicted by your zodiacal affiliation.
For example, Fire signs like Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are active, always on the go, and tend to be truthful, because they speak before they think. Water signs like Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces are emotionally intelligent, connect well with others, and their open hearts make them dreamy and creative. Air signs like Gemini, Libra and Aquarius are intellectual, and always in the know. They have all the information, and a real thirst for knowledge. And Earth signs like Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn are home loving, hardworking and secure. They’re grown up, and they don’t try to hide it. Finding out somebody’s astrological sign can make you a more understanding friend, a better gift-giver, and a mind-reading support system.”
Aquarius: cinder toffee
20th January – February 18th
Aquarians are known for their independence. A desire for risky business means nothing is out of your comfort zone, and you’re keen to try new things. You will regularly try to incorporate fun with friends into your life, whenever possible, to avoid dull moments and time alone.
Cinder-toffee-flavoured coffee couldn’t be a more accurate representation of an Aquarius – its bittersweet taste mixed with coffee is certain to provide the thrill of the new experience that you’re seeking. It’s no doubt that the sugary flavour will boost your energetic personality even further.
Pisces: comforting chocolate
19th February – 20th March
Pisceans have a compassionate and gentle nature. Listening is one of your top skills, and it is a trait recognised by everybody around you – so Pisceans are the first person when a loved one needs someone to talk to. But you too often need this to be reciprocated, leading to the desire to escape reality.
The sweet taste of chocolate is like no other and acts as your best friend when you need comfort. So what would be better suited to a Pisces than chocolate-flavoured coffee? You might spend a lot of time comforting others – but you can trust this flavour to do the same for you during your alone time.
Aries: ambitious orange
21st March – 19th April
Aries are no stranger to challenging situations. Always wanting to be the first in everything is a common trait across Aries, meaning that they are very driven. This stems from your courage, confidence, and enthusiastic attitude. However, this can often bring a short-tempered side out in Aries.
Can you be any more ambitious than orange-flavoured coffee? While it may seem an unusual mix, given the contrasting tastes, it’s no doubt that you will be awarded the gold medal for the most adventurous coffee drinker, so, of course, this flavour is the epitome of Aries.
Taurus: timeless vanilla
20th April – 20th May
As a Taurean, you always appreciate time for relaxation. You surround yourself with love and beauty – commitment is one of your strengths and it can sometimes be misconstrued as stubbornness. Adjusting to change can be difficult for you, so a routine will keep you positive. Reliability is one of your traits that is adored by others, as they can be confident that you will have their back in times of need.
Your coffee flavour is something that you can stick to for eternity if you choose the right one, given your dislike for change – so a simple but delicious flavour sums up Taureans. Vanilla-flavoured coffee comes in handy for times of relaxation as it is a classic taste without being too sickly, so it can always be your go-to choice.
Gemini: chai latte
21st May – 20th June
Curiosity is one of the most dominant traits of a Gemini. You are fascinated by the world around you and feel as though there isn’t enough time to experience everything, which can sometimes bring out your nervous side. You’re often indecisive, revealing your restlessness when stressed. But you are an affectionate spirit who can adapt to change with ease.
A chai-latte-flavoured coffee is the one for you Geminis. You can blend coffee and tea into one drink to ensure you can have two experiences within the sip of your drink. Plus, there is no need to be indecisive with this flavour if you are ever torn between the two.
Cancer: classic caramel
21st June – 22nd July
Loyalty is one of your strengths as a Cancer. Often expressing emotions, Cancers are very sympathetic and attached to their loved ones – so even if you are a family member or friend of a Cancer, you can always count on them. Expressing emotions never appears a struggle for Cancers, but it can sometimes reveal a pessimistic and insecure side.
Cancers can be represented by a delicious flavour that can never become boring. Caramel coffee is perfect for you – it’s sweet to match your personality and is a classic flavour that you can be certain will pack a brilliant taste with every sip you take. Plus, your loyalty deserves the reward of a flavour that you will be happy to commit to.
23rd July – 22nd August
Fiery, dramatic, dominant: Leos love life and radiate confidence. It is to no surprise that this sign is represented by the lion. You can sometimes expect too much from people though, which can occasionally convey your self-centred and arrogant side. Regardless, you show an abundance of generosity, which explains your capability for uniting people around you.
There is no coffee better suited to a Leo than a gingerbread coffee. The strong kick of flavour flaunts your dominant side and is sure to impress. The fusion of various tastes will undoubtedly meet your high standards, as well as the sweet-but-spicy notes will reflect the alternating sides of your personality.
23rd August – 22nd September
Virgos are known for their attention to detail. You often take logical and practical approaches, and you take care in everything that you do. This practice can sometimes lead to stress and being overly critical of yourself and others. Nonetheless, Virgos are kind people and have a deep sense of humanity.
Hazelnut-flavoured coffee is perfect for Virgos. It’s a classic and rich taste, meaning the two go together like a house on fire – so it portrays your carefulness and logic take. And not to mention it will avoid stress from your attempt to be careful and cautious.
Libra: cookies and cream
23rd September – 22nd October
Partnership is important for Libras. Balance and symmetry are necessary for you, which often causes difficulty with decision-making. Despite confrontation being one of your weaknesses, your ability to be cooperative and fair-minded is appreciated.
Cookies and cream is the perfect flavour for Libras. The two are both sweet, yet have a subtly different taste to one another, so it is the perfect representation of your desire for balance and partnership. The struggle to make decisions can be tackled with cookies-and-cream coffee as it combines more than one flavour to ease your stress.
Scorpio: powerful pumpkin spice
23rd October – 21st November
Passion is one of the many traits of a Scorpio. You appear assertive to others, and although this can seem violent on the surface, you are known to be a true friend once you dig deeper. Your aura emits power and bravery, so your intensity never goes unnoticed.
The pumpkin-spice flavour is certain to offer an intense taste and is the perfect representation of a Scorpio. With an array of flavours to tingle your tastebuds, pumpkin-spice coffee will match your powerful persona.
22nd November – 21st December
Sagittarians know no bounds when it comes to adventure. If Sagittarius is your star sign, you enjoy feeling free and are full of positivity and enthusiasm. But your optimism sometimes means that you promise more than you can deliver. You are a generous spirit and are ready for changes.
Coconut-flavoured coffee is certain to fulfil your need for adventure and travel. Your free-spirited mind is likely to transport you to an exciting destination in your imagination with such a tropical flavour. So it’s no doubt that coconut is the most suitable flavoured coffee to encompass your traits.
Capricorn: mint chocolate
22nd December – 19th January
Capricorns are driven, determined, and hard-working individuals. Time is valuable to you and goes hand-in-hand with your responsibility. Self-control is one of the strengths of a Capricorn and allows you to thrive within both your professional and personal lives. But this can often leave you with a negative attitude where you expect the worst.
Mint chocolate coffee is a Capricorn in drink form. While the refreshing taste of mint gives you a boost to maintain your hard work and motivation (as well as the caffeine), the sweet taste of chocolate comforts you to lock away any negative thoughts that may act as a distraction.
Star signs are an exciting way to discover what you are best suited to – whether you’re a passionate Scorpio or a curious Gemini, there are plenty of traits unique to each sign that can determine your favourite things in life, including your go-to coffee flavours.
