What Your Drink From That New Coffee Machine In The Dining Halls Says About You

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Williams chapter.

First Ever Coffee Matchmaker Service1.0



You’re here for a simple, easy way to get caffeinated in the morning, but since you love yourself, you’re not about to subject your taste buds to plain black coffee. Good thing this machine will make a latte for you so you don’t have to! Major time-saver.




You like your coffee, but you also like to be a little fancy. A little sophisticated. Not too over-the-top, just a little extra special. That steamed milk makes all the difference in your mind. You don’t take your coffee like an unsophisticated college kid, you take it like an adult, and that applies to all areas of your life: you are put-together and mature, and you pay attention to detail.


French Vanilla Cappuccino


You have a bubbly, effervescent personality, and you enjoy being just a little bit extra. You won’t settle for just an ordinary cappuccino–no, your drink needs some pizzazz. You drink Frappuccinos and PSLs unironically, not that anyone’s blaming you, and you use a lot of emojis. You’re the life of the party, and there’s never a dull moment when you’re around. Never change, you beautiful tropical fish.




Like FVC-drinkers, you like your coffee with something sweet. However, unlike FVC-drinkers, you want to feel a little more serious while you drink it. A mocha is the best of both worlds, coffee and chocolate blended together in one cup, and you want to have it all, so you’re gonna get to have it all. You are ambitious, but you’re also fun, and you don’t let either one get in the way of the other.




Either you are Type-A, super-efficient, and very-on-top-of-everything, or you are a huge procrastinator and all the things are due tomorrow. There is no in between. Whichever way you roll, espresso fuels you as you do it, and you will accept nothing less than coffee in its purest, most concentrated form.




You are super chill, and you appreciate simple pleasures. You don’t need caffeine. You don’t need sugar. You’re fine with a nice warm cup of frothy steamed milk. You don’t fall for hype, and you always stay true to yourself. You are truly the chillest.


Hot Chocolate


You don’t want to be up all night, but you’ll be damned if you don’t satisfy your sweet tooth and your hot-drink cravings in one fell swoop. Even though now you’re expected to do grown-up things like paying taxes and making your own doctor’s appointments, you’re still a child at heart. Aging is mandatory, growing up is optional, and hot chocolate is freaking delicious.
