17 Excellent Moments From The Hipster Barista Meme

“yeah it’s real representative of what I do to feed my family.”

There’s nothing more satisfying than learning that the man behind the Hipster Barista Meme, Dustin Mattson, speaks exactly as you would expect, telling the Atlanta Eater

I do find it discouraging and disappointing that there was so much exposure brought to an attempt at making a joke of a culinary industry and the professional barista. To me, it’s very telling on how we laud farm-to-table food, craft beer, cocktail mixology, but it’s ok to have no respect for the specialty coffee world and the people who are committed to it.

On the other hand, the whole thing only makes me want to work harder at my job, make better coffee, serve my customers better, and bring more positive exposure to both the company I work for, the barista profession, and specialty coffee as a whole. If anyone were to see my and my coworkers’ work in the café, they’d see that it doesn’t quite match up to most of the jokes made against the “Hipster Barista”.

So in his honor, here are 17 of the best moments in the Hipster Barista Meme.
