San Francisco is a wonderful place for innovation, and the weather isn’t half-bad either when it’s not foggy. Many people joke about the type of folks who live in the Bay Area, and the word “hipster” gets used a lot. I don’t even know what a hipster is, but I’m pretty sure that I’m not one.

If you’re a hipster, you might want to be aware of some rules that a shop called Four Barrel Coffee on Caledonia Street posted on its window, which came off as a totally hipster rant.

Ironic.

“Not talking about annoying hipster topics”

Is it a joke? A hint of sarcasm? Hipster on hipster crime? Who knows, but we take our coffee very seriously in San Francisco, so don’t come here and screw shit up for us.

You’ve been warned.

Oh, and Mucho Smoocho.
