Hipsterdom just peaked as Melbourne café sells deconstructed coffee

1.jpg

And you thought this test tube coffee was bad?

In the latest example of hipsters turning a simple brew into a GSCE science class, Melbourne-based writer Jamila Rizvi has just taken to Instagram to vent(i) her spleen at being served three beakers - one with steamed milk, one with water, the other with espresso - delivered, naturally, on a rustic piece of wood.

"Sorry Melbourne but no. No no no no no," she wrote. "Hipsterism has gone too far when your coffee comes deconstructed.”

Adding, “I just waited almost 20 minutes for an actual cup before realising it would not be forthcoming. I wanted a coffee. Not a science experiment. I prefer to drink my beverages out of crockery and not beakers. Next stage? I'll just get a chopping board with a bunch of actual coffee beans and an upside down hat on it.”

Please, Rizvi, don’t give them any more ideas.
