We all love to hate on Hipsters. But it’s safe to say that despite some of their, er, downfalls (for example, the fact that 70% of the women in East London now suffer from severe beard rash), they do exude an enviable creativity, resulting in the ability to transform what would be pretty banal activities into cool, quirky and (rather insufferable) ways of doing things. Hipsters, we loovvv..haatttt…loovvvv…ugh. We mildly (very mildly, like korma mildly) admire your imagination.
Except for when it comes to coffee. Then you can f*ck off.
