“No. 6 Are you a young hipster who desires locally sourced coffee before all else?”

Coffee culture sure is coming a long way. It seems there used to be a time when a preference of how one wanted to live, you know, with certain social and cultural amenities, was just that…how one wanted to live.

But in L.A. and might I say, lots of metropolis’ that are scaled like it –  walkable urbanism helps define how one will live. Additionally it also impacts the choice of neighborhood one wants to live in, as people want transparency, connection, emotional concepts that I find are under the root of what gets bottled in hipster-ism.

Well, lets all mind our hood, because, if where you live is like a social gps tool for if you’re a hipster or not, L.A.’s positioning system might just read city wide in that regard – L.A. is a coffee boom town right now. Does that mean this whole town will eventually be a city of generational hipsters? – cde
