Coffee Riddles

Here are four riddles for kids where the answer is coffee, so these are perfect for using with our other beverage riddles.

The first three of these are rhyming riddles, while the fourth asks your kids What Am I?

To use that final idea, read the clue that’s on the first line to your children and ask them to try taking a guess at what they think the answer might be. As the clue is that it’s something that can be roasted but which isn’t a turkey, they might guess that the answer is chicken, potatoes or chestnuts.

If they don’t guess that coffee is the correct answer, read them the second clue and have them take another guess now that they have some extra information. Keep going until your kids either guess that the answer is coffee or they run out of clues.

Although I’m not magic
I am a type of bean

Which then goes on to be ground

In a cup or mug it’s found


Americano and latte
Cappuccino if you please
Macchiato and espresso
Tell me – what are all of these?
