'Portlandia' Makes the Ultimate Hipster Coffee Shop Manifesto

An Instagram ban looks tame compared to this decree from Portland baristas

If you have visited a coffee shop like, ever, you are going to absolutely die watching this underground club of Portlandia baristas unite under the "coffee shop manifesto." Much like the Instagram ban in San Francisco's Four Barrel Coffee shop, or the stroller, milk, and sugar ban at the Berlin coffee shop Barn Roastery, these baristas are sick and tired of you unappreciative consumers. So let's appreciate the baristas for their art — the manifesto: 

No chatter at the counter. 

Don't even knock on the bathroom door (you know someone is doing their business in there).

No questions. ("You know what's not good here? YOU!") 

Check out the full clip of Portlandia here.
