Cream, Sugar, and None of Your Hipster Talk

Cream, Sugar, and None of Your Hipster Talk

San Francisco’s Four Barrel coffee house offers weekend alfresco coffee service at a counter in the alley, but apparently the customer chatter irks the neighbors. The java joint’s Barrista General has plastered the walls with directives for drinkers: No talking about “annoying hipster topics” or who you slept with last night.

This has brewed up a tempest of talk on the Interwebz, speculation about those banned topics (fixies? Instagram? Scooters? Beards? PBR?) as well as guesses about whether the posters are meant to be ironic. Don’t utter the word “ironic” in the Four Barrel alley, though ….

One topic that hasn’t been discussed: Is the coffee any good? Oh, wait, there’s no need to talk about it; just look it up on Yelp.
