While we were having lunch at the University cafeteria today, we had an unexpected encounter with the hipsters of Kyoto. Or at least those at Kyoto University. In the main plaza of the University, there was a small crowd gathered and a couple of traffic guards sorting it out. As crowds usually stir one’s curiosity, we got closer to check it out.
It turns out that two guys were roasting, grinding and brewing their own coffee, on a bench in the plaza, in the most casual way possible. We filmed the entire scene as this was something not to be missed:
If make-your-own-coffee-from-scratch-in-public is not ‘hipstery’, I don’t know what else is :).
