The astrological sign we are born under impacts our personalities, proclivities, and even our tastes. For this blog, we’ve consulted the stars (along with a handful of their worldly interpreters) to identify the best coffee and coffee drinks for each zodiac sign, broken up by guiding element.
Fires signs are passionate, charismatic, dynamic, and at peak performance when moving at top speed. In life, they like to move quickly, live boldly, and add a touch of panache to all they do. Their coffee profilings are no less daring.
Adventurous, independent, and always on the go, Aries tend to gravitate towards warm, energy-boosting foods with a kick. One of the most active signs in the Zodiac, those born under Aries love a little indulgence but aren’t keen to waste time. Looking collectively at their preferences and traits, we recommend a full-city roasted Kenya AA. Kenya AA is intense, powerful, and packed with delicious deep wine and cocoa notes that add an extra touch of luxury to this caffeine-packed cup.
Bold, original, and charismatic, Leos love luxury sprinkled with a touch of drama. They also are known to savour decadent desserts and sweet foods. One of the most assertive signs in the Zodiac, those born under Leo are confident and unabashedly indulgent. Looking collectively at their preferences and traits, we recommend a full-city roasted Central American coffee. Centrals are dynamic and bold with a hint of glitz — just like the Leo.
Adventurous, athletic, and itching for new experiences, those born under the sign of Sagittarius bring a spark (and occasional raging fire) of energy wherever they go. When it comes to food, Sagittarians tend to go for the cool and plentiful. Looking collectively at their preferences and traits, we recommend a full-city roasted Papua New Guinea. Delicate and bright with an array of sweet fruit, citrus, and sugar tones topped with a smattering of spice, Papua New Guinea coffee offers an element of the exotic in a delightful, well-textured cup. It also tastes wonderful iced.
Loyal, stable, and grounded, Earth signs treasure consistency and purity in their food. They also enjoy experiencing a medley of perfectly harmonized flavors. Coffee profilings for those born under an Earth sign reflect this need for sensory stimulation coupled with refined simplicity.
Grounded, loyal, and lovers of perfected simplicity, the Taurus is truly a creature of the earth. While those born under the sign of Taurus gravitate towards less complex culinary compositions, they have an astute appreciation for harmonized tastes partnered with an extraordinary ability to detect mere traces of flavor. They want their food to excite them. Looking collectively at their preferences and traits, we recommend a full-city roasted African. Bright and smooth with rich berry and cocoa notes, a good African coffee is direct yet complex in its flavor composition — just like the Taurus!
Consistent, balanced, and health-oriented, Virgos know what they like. Often described to as picky, those born under the sign of Virgo are devout perfectionists who generally gravitate towards clean, gently flavored foods. Once they find what they like, they stick to it — why mess with perfection! Looking collectively at their preferences and traits, we recommend a full-city or Vienna roasted blend. Virgos enjoy the consistency and reliability of a complex blend with a broad, subtle flavor palate.
Practical, reliable, and extremely ambitious, Capricorns enjoy pushing the edge of tradition. While some say that those born under the sign of Capricorns have simple tastes, we believe that they have merely mastered the art of simplicity, preferring the clean and savory to the decadent and sweet. Looking collectively at their preferences and traits, we recommend a bittersweet Burndi, one with savory undertones and traditional African acidity.
Air signs like variety! These artsy beings appreciate fine flavors and unique combinations. While Air signs tens to go for sweeter, smoother, seasonal coffees, their specific preference may change from day to day (or minute to minute) — as Air signs, they are one with the winds of change!
Curious, agile, and free-spirited, Geminis move to their own tune. Social by nature, those born under the sign of Gemini are open-minded, versatile, and rarely shy away from trying something new. In terms of taste preferences, they tend towards sweet, smooth, and delicate. They are also known to be particularly sensitive to caffeine. Looking collectively at their preferences and traits, we recommend a full-city to Vienna roasted Salvadoran.
Balanced, creative, and at times believed to have their head in the clouds, Libras enjoy most things that are harmonious and well-presented. Those born under the sign of Libra tend to enjoy elegantly arranged, textured foods with lightly spiced seasonal flavors. Looking collectively at their preferences and traits, we recommend a Central American / South American blend that captures the body of a South American coffee with the delicate floral notes of a Central American.
Unconventional, observant, and unpredictable, Aquarians are charming, introverted visionaries that generally manage to add an element of individuality into all they do. Those born under the sign of Aquarius tend to enjoy rich, flavor-packed foods. Looking collectively at their preferences and traits, we recommend a flavored coffee.
Intuitive and sensitive, Water signs are extraordinarily complex and enjoy uncovering minute, nuanced details. Highly empathetic by nature, Water signs are undeterred by the extremes — emotional and sensory. Spicy or sweet, rich or delicate, hot or cold, Water signs embrace it all.
Intelligent, complex, and caring, Cancerians are the most sensitive sign in the Zodiac. That sensitivity extends to all they encounter — relationships, textiles, and even food. Known for having delicate stomachs and a love for spicy foods, those born under the sign of Cancer need a drink that gives them that much sought-after cozy feeling without upsetting their stomachs. Looking collectively at their preferences and traits, we recommend a low acidity Asian, such as an Indian or Sumatran coffee.
Intense, sensual, and mysterious, Scorpios approach life with passion and purpose. This intensity and passion is visible in Scorpio’s food preferences – rich, indulgent, and fired by powerful, unrelenting spice. Unsurprisingly, those born under the sign of Scorpio are known to like it hot (we are talking about pepper and chili!). Looking collectively at their preferences and traits, we recommend a heavy-bodied, spicy Sumatra.
Warm, compassionate, and sensitive, Pisces have strong, guiding intuitions and innate synergy with all that surrounds them. The most empathic sign in the Zodiac, those born under the sign of Pisces may have strong, ingratiating characters but they require some delicacy when it comes to food. Anything too bold or bitter could wreak havoc on their taste buds. Looking collectively at their preferences and traits, we recommend a full-city roasted, full-bodied Colombian.
We hope this astrological coffee breakdown has helped you in your quest for your perfect cup!
