Your preferred brand of coffee might be as good as a personality test, one British clinical psychologist is insisting.

After an exhaustive study of 1,000 personality types, cross-referenced with the kind of coffee they drink, Dr Ramani Durvasula developed a system by which you can figure out someone's key traits, just by taking a sip of their coffee — although, let's face it, that'd be pretty awkward.
