ONE. Brooklyn, NY

There’s a once empty lot in Brooklyn, now filled with a 24 hour seven days a week programming schedule, issuing independently out of a shipping container. Shipping music across global airwaves, The Lot Radio, streams live. This weekend, it officially welcomed a coffee kiosk. That kiosk, serving Luft Coffee is an intentional little-structure-that-could, which the shipping container hopes to use to keep their independent venture funded.




Kid friendly.

TWO. Queensland.

Nothing like a good mast to help set a boat sail. A little coffee shop, Mast Coffee has opened in Queensland and it portends to steer not just adults but kids too, into some sweet waters. This culture wants what they’re drinking and a spot on that killer beach in the picture in the background. Vibes!

They do.

Noosaville, Queensland

Leave it to elevated twinkle nights to light up a long table at a cafe in Downtown L.A. of family and friends for an engagement dinner of two of L.A.;s own Ashtianah and Blake Scott. Keeping social media up to date with a few beautiful posts and snaps, the two who will become Mr. And Mrs. Scott this year, show the culture how a cafe can be an alternative character to its day persona. Aren’t coffee shops just romantic?

p.s. Because there’s always room for a post script. This culture would be culturally remiss if it didn’t mention how many views its contributed to Refinery 29’s collaboration with Design Compendium – coffee sure is cool.
