Kedai Kopi San Francisco Melarang 'Topik Hipster'

Kedai Kopi San Francisco Melarang 'Topik Hipster'

Kedai Kopi Empat Barel menunjukkan tanda yang menyinggung dunia (baik, kebanyakan hipsters)

Four Barrel meletakkan kabosh di shenanigans hipster anda.

Kami fikir kedai kopi seharusnya menjadi tempat berlindung di hipster, bukan? Kenapa lagi La Colombe masukkan minuman sejuk mereka ke dalam mesin soda vintaj? Ternyata, satu kedai kopi di San Francisco telah memilikinya dengan ceramah hipster anda.

Seorang petua menghantar SFist gambar dari Empat tong tanda baru di tingkap kopi lorong belakang, memuatkan peraturan untuk pengguna kopi. Walaupun kebanyakan peraturan itu cukup sah (mencari jalan raya, menghormati toleransi kebisingan jiran, dan menjauhkan lorong sampah tidak masuk akal), ada satu peraturan yang menonjol. Sebagai peraturan akhir berbunyi: "Tidak membicarakan topik-topik hipster yang menjengkelkan. Atau siapa yang anda kemukakan malam tadi. Anda seharusnya tidak melakukan perkara itu, tetapi jiran kita sebenarnya dapat mendengar anda."

Baiklah, itu pasti banyak topik perbincangan. Tetapi Gawker telah mengumpulkan senarai topik yang sesuai untuk dibincangkan: kanta lekap, roda tiga, campuran kapas twill, Beyoncé, janggut (penolakan), dan Paul Ryan. Itu akan menggembirakan! Adakah kedai kopi terlalu jauh dengan melarang bercakap hipster - atau mendorongnya?


10 Syarikat Coklat Amerika yang mesti anda cuba

Negara-negara seperti Perancis dan Switzerland mungkin terkenal di dunia kerana coklatnya yang luar biasa, tetapi bukan satu-satunya tempat yang mempunyai pelbagai kakao yang diproses dengan baik. Syarikat coklat A.S. ini meminta anda mencari lebih jauh daripada halaman belakang anda sendiri untuk mendapatkan coklat artisanal yang terbaik.

1. THEO CHOCOLATE // SEATTLE

terkenal dengan bar khasnya yang diperbuat daripada kakao perdagangan adil dan organik yang bersumber secara khusus oleh pemilik Joe Whinney dan Debra Music — bekas pasangan suami isteri yang bertukar menjadi perniagaan. Sejak tahun 2006, Theo Chocolate telah membuat coklat "bean-to-bar", yang bermaksud biji kakao dipanggang, digiling, dan bertukar menjadi coklat coklat di satu lokasi. Kadang-kadang, Theo Chocolate sangat senang mendapat pesanan sehingga mengeluarkan bar coklat — seperti coklat gelap kelapa dan beras hitam quinoa — 24 jam sehari.

2. RECCHIUTI // SAN FRANCISCO

Banyak pencipta coklat berskala kecil mencari bahan berkualiti yang bersumber dari ladang kakao organik untuk menghasilkan bar berkualiti tinggi. Recchiuti membuat pengeluaran coklatnya selangkah lebih jauh dengan membuat bar dengan bahan-bahan tempatan, termasuk sampanye Napa Valley. Pemilik Michael dan Jacky Recchiuti membuka syarikat coklat buatan pada tahun 1997 dan memberi tumpuan untuk menghasilkan coklat kecil yang mengandungi bahan-bahan berkualiti, sering mendapatkan ramuan segar dari pasar petani daerah. Selain itu, awal tahun ini Recchiuti bekerjasama dengan pembuat bir dari dua kilang bir California untuk membuat bir yang tidak perlu digandingkan: coklat yang menampilkan coklat khas Recchiuti dan sirap karamel bakar.

3. ROGUE CHOCOLATIER // TIGA SUNGAI, MASSACHUSET

dikendalikan oleh seorang lelaki, mempunyai dua bahan mudah, dan berpusat di Three Rivers, Massachusetts. Pengeluar coklat kecil-ke-bar, yang dipimpin oleh Colin Gasko, memberi tumpuan kepada menonjolkan rasa asas coklat dengan hanya menggunakan gula tebu dan coklat tunggal. Sekiranya anda penggemar tambahan dan perisa coklat, Rogue Chocolatier mungkin bukan pilihan pertama anda, kerana Gasko percaya "adalah usaha sia-sia untuk membuat coklat yang sangat hebat dan kemudian membuang sedikit kacang ke atasnya." Tetapi semasa anda menginginkan bar coklat premium yang murni? Malah Martha Stewart adalah peminat.

4. BEDRÉ FINE CHOCOLATES // DAVIS, OKLAHOMA

Kerepek kentang, jagung, dan kue sandwic semuanya adalah makanan ringan coklat-dicelup tinggi yang dijual oleh Bedré Fine Chocolates. Tetapi makanan ringan berasaskan kakao yang tidak biasa syarikat itu bukan satu-satunya perkara yang menjadikan coklat Amerika ini terpisah daripada gula-gula lain. Ia juga satu-satunya kilang coklat A.S. yang dimiliki oleh Native American Tribe. Pada tahun 2000, Chickasaw Nation membeli syarikat itu, yang pada masa itu beroperasi di sebuah bekas sekolah rendah di Oklahoma selatan-tengah. Sejak itu, syarikat ini telah menciptakan pekerjaan tempatan sambil meningkatkan pelancongan — belum lagi menghasilkan pelbagai coklat yang lebih menarik seperti fudge, “meltaways” yang dipenuhi, dan bar coklat yang dipenuhi.

5. FRAN'S CHOCOLATES // SEATTLE

Sekiranya Gedung Putih meminta lebih banyak kotak coklat anda, anda tahu mereka melakukan sesuatu dengan betul. Fran's Chocolates yang berpusat di Seattle menjadi kegemaran bukan sahaja Obamas ketika mereka berada di jejak kempen pada tahun 2008, tetapi juga ejen Perkhidmatan Rahsia mereka (walaupun Presiden Obama dilaporkan tidak mahu berkongsi). Fran's Chocolates dibuka pada tahun 1982 di bawah tanggungjawab Fran Bigelow, seorang coklat yang terinspirasi dari perjalanan ke Paris, dan telah mencipta truffle, karamel, bar coklat, dan buah-buahan dan kacang-kacangan yang berkualiti tinggi sejak itu.

6. CHRISTOPHER ELBOW CHOCOLATES // KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI

Anda mungkin perlu membuang siku untuk mendapatkan sedikit gula-gula Midwestern ini. Christopher Elbow Chocolates terkenal dengan sebilangan kecil coklatnya, serta barisan pelanggannya yang lama menunggu untuk menikmati beberapa makanan. Coklat dilukis dengan tangan seperti kanvas kecil, tetapi citarasa — seperti sitrus praline, mangga basil, dan wiski walnut — adalah karya sebenar. Tetapi pemilik Christopher Elbow tidak hanya fokus pada coklat akhir yang dihasilkan dari awal yang mengandungi bahan segar dan tanpa bahan pengawet — yang bermaksud mereka mempunyai jangka hayat yang pendek (yang semestinya tidak menjadi masalah bagi pencinta coklat).

7. BON BON BON // HAMTRANCK, MICHIGAN

Pemilik Bon Bon Bon diberitahu bahawa dia harus berpindah ke kota besar agar impian kedai coklatnya berjaya. Tetapi penduduk asli Michigan, Alexandra Clark memilih untuk tinggal dekat dengan rumah, berkongsi truffle artisan dan coklat dalam hampir 100 rasa dengan pencinta coklat Hamtranck (dan Detroit) yang berdekatan. Sejak 2014, Bon Bon mendapat sokongan yang luar biasa untuk makanan coklat kecil, menjual lebih dari 2000 sehari coklat artisannya seperti Madu Kambing, Margarita, Sticky Bun, dan Johnny Cashew. Walaupun banyak rasa bermusim, seperti Fried Green Tomato dan Caprese, Bon Bon Bon meluangkan masa untuk menghormati kampung halamannya dengan "Detroit Collection" yang istimewa, dengan rasa yang diilhami oleh citarasa masakan klasik di bandar ini.

8. TCHO // SAN FRANCISCO

Sekiranya anda tidak dapat dengan mudah menyebut nama jenama coklat ini, tidak mengapa — rasa itu lebih penting lagi. Dianggap sebagai permulaan teknologi memenuhi jenis kelezatan masakan, TCHO (diucapkan "choh") bergantung pada teknologi berasaskan awannya sendiri untuk menentukan waktu terbaik untuk memilih biji kakao untuk rasa maksimum dan penolakan minimum bagi petani. Hasil akhir pengaruh teknologi ini adalah pelbagai coklat berperisa kacang, seperti Mint Chip Gelato, Mokaccino, dan Coconut Crisp.

9. TIDAK DIBENARKAN MENGEJUT // NEW YORK CITY

Anda tidak perlu berkunjung ke Perancis untuk mencari truffle coklat yang sedap — Tidak Boleh Mengunyah Dibolehkan mengambil resipi Perancis berusia 75 tahun dan mencipta truffle yang pantas di Amerika. Di luar truffle klasik, para pencinta coklat dapat menikmati rasa Coffee Beans, Candied Orange Peels, dan Salted Toffee, antara lain. Adapun namanya? Pemilik Lior Genzel bermaksud. Cara terbaik untuk menikmati truffle adalah membiarkannya perlahan-lahan mencair di lidah anda, jika tidak, anda akan kehilangan pengalaman penuh coklat.

10. K'UL CHOCOLATE // MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA

Coklat diketahui mempunyai beberapa manfaat kesihatan, dan K’ul Chocolate bertujuan untuk memanfaatkannya dengan sebaik-baiknya. Pemiliknya, Peter Kelsey adalah mangsa barah dalam misi untuk menunjukkan bahawa kakao berkualiti tinggi mempunyai tahap antioksidan dan indeks glisemik yang sihat. Setelah rawatan radiasi, coklat adalah salah satu dari tiga rasa yang dapat dirasakan Kelsey (di sebelah kopi dan protein), dan pada tahun 2015, dia melancarkan K’ul Chocolate dengan idea untuk mengembalikan coklat ke akarnya sebagai makanan kesihatan. Sejak itu, syarikat telah memfokuskan pada coklat kacang-bar-bar di Minneapolis, yang menampilkan biji labu, guarana, dan bahan-bahan pemakanan lain di barnya. Dengan bar coklat yang dibuat untuk meningkatkan daya tahan dan memulihkan elektrolit, tidak ada alasan untuk merasa bersalah kerana memanjakan selera anda.

Pengeluar coklat kecil-ke-bar, yang dipimpin oleh Colin Gasko, fokus untuk menonjolkan rasa asas coklat dengan hanya menggunakan gula tebu dan coklat tunggal.

Tetapi semasa anda menginginkan bar coklat premium yang murni? Malah Martha Stewart adalah peminat.

4. BEDRÉ FINE CHOCOLATES // DAVIS, OKLAHOMA

Potato chips, corn twists, and sandwich cookies are all high-demand, chocolate-dipped snacks sold by Bedré Fine Chocolates. But the company’s unusual cacao-based snacks aren’t the only thing setting this American chocolatier apart from other confectioners. It’s also the only U.S. chocolate factory owned by a Native American Tribe. In 2000, the Chickasaw Nation purchased the company, at the time operated out of a former elementary school in south-central Oklahoma. Since then, the company has created local jobs while boosting tourism—not to mention producing a variety of fancier chocolates such as its fudge, filled "meltaways," and filled chocolate bars.

5. FRAN'S CHOCOLATES // SEATTLE

If the White House is asking for more boxes of your chocolate, you know they're doing something right. Seattle-based Fran’s Chocolates became a favorite of not only the Obamas when they were on the campaign trail in 2008, but also their Secret Service agents (despite President Obama’s reported unwillingness to share). Fran’s Chocolates opened in 1982 under the charge of Fran Bigelow, a chocolatier inspired by a trip to Paris, and has created high-quality truffles, caramels, chocolate bars, and dipped fruits and nuts since.

6. CHRISTOPHER ELBOW CHOCOLATES // KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI

You may have to throw an elbow to get a bite of these Midwestern candies. Christopher Elbow Chocolates is known for its small batch, artful chocolates, as well as its lengthy line of customers waiting to snag a few treats. Chocolates are hand-painted like small canvases, but the flavors—such as citrus praline, mango basil, and whiskey walnut—are the real masterpiece. But owner Christopher Elbow isn't just focused on the final look chocolates are made from scratch featuring fresh ingredients and no preservatives—meaning they have a short shelf-life (which shouldn’t be an issue for chocolate lovers).

7. BON BON BON // HAMTRANCK, MICHIGAN

The owner of Bon Bon Bon was told that she’d have to move to a big city for her chocolate shop dreams to be successful. But Michigan native Alexandra Clark chose to stay close to home, sharing artisan truffles and chocolates in nearly 100 flavors with Hamtranck (and nearby Detroit) chocolate lovers. Since 2014, Bon Bon Bon has seen staggering support for the tiny chocolate treats, selling more than 2000 per day of its artisan chocolates such as Goat Honey, Margarita, Sticky Bun, and Johnny Cashew. While many flavors are seasonal, like Fried Green Tomato and Caprese, Bon Bon Bon takes time to honor its hometown with a specialty "Detroit Collection," with flavors inspired by the city’s classic culinary tastes.

8. TCHO // SAN FRANCISCO

If you can’t easily pronounce this chocolate brand’s name right off, that’s OK—tasting it is more important anyway. Considered a tech start-up meets culinary delights kind of company, TCHO (pronounced "choh") relies on its own cloud-based technology to determine the best time to pick cacao beans for maximum flavor and minimal rejection for farmers. The end result of this technological influence is a variety of bean-to-bar flavored chocolates, such as Mint Chip Gelato, Mokaccino, and Coconut Crisp.

9. NO CHEWING ALLOWED // NEW YORK CITY

You don’t have to visit France to find mouthwatering chocolate truffles—No Chewing Allowed takes a 75-year-old French recipe and creates swoon-worthy truffles here in the States. Beyond the classic truffle, chocolate lovers can enjoy Coffee Beans, Candied Orange Peels, and Salted Toffee flavors, among others. Adapun namanya? Owner Lior Genzel means it. The best way to savor a truffle is to let it slowly melt on your tongue, otherwise you’ll miss out on the full chocolatey experience.

10. K'UL CHOCOLATE // MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA

Chocolate is known to have some health benefits, and K’ul Chocolate aims to make the best use of them. Owner Peter Kelsey is a cancer survivor on a mission to show that high-quality cacao has healthful antioxidants and glycemic index levels. Following radiation treatment, chocolate was one of only three flavors Kelsey could taste (next to coffee and protein), and in 2015, he launched K’ul Chocolate with the idea of returning chocolate to its roots as a health food. Since then, the company has focused on bean-to-bar chocolate in Minneapolis, featuring pumpkin seeds, guarana, and other nutritional ingredients in its bars. And with chocolate bars created to boost endurance and restore electrolytes, there’s no reason to feel guilty for indulging your taste buds.


10 American Chocolate Companies You've Got to Try

Countries like France and Switzerland may be world-famous for their exceptional chocolate, but they’re not the only places that have a variety of finely crafted, processed cacao. These U.S. chocolate companies will have you looking no further than your own backyard for some of the best in artisanal chocolate.

1. THEO CHOCOLATE // SEATTLE

is known for its specialty bars made from organic, fair-trade cacao specifically sourced by owners Joe Whinney and Debra Music—former spouses-turned-business partners. Since 2006, Theo Chocolate has created "bean-to-bar" chocolate, meaning cacao beans are roasted, ground, and turned to chocolately bliss in one location. At times, Theo Chocolate is so slammed for orders that it manufactures chocolate bars—like its coconut dark chocolate and black rice quinoa crunch—24 hours a day.

2. RECCHIUTI // SAN FRANCISCO

Many small-scale chocolate creators look for quality ingredients sourced from organic cacao farms to produce high-quality bars. Recchiuti takes its chocolate production one step further by creating bars with local ingredients, including Napa Valley champagne. Owners Michael and Jacky Recchiuti opened the artisanal chocolate company in 1997 and focused on producing small-batch chocolates featuring quality ingredients, often sourcing fresh herbs from area farmers’ markets. Plus, earlier this year Recchiuti teamed up with brewmasters from two California breweries to craft beer that needs no pairing: a chocolate stout featuring the Recchiuti’s signature chocolate and burnt caramel syrups.

3. ROGUE CHOCOLATIER // THREE RIVERS, MASSACHUSETTS

is run by one man, features two simple ingredients, and is based out of Three Rivers, Massachusetts. The small bean-to-bar chocolate producer, lead by Colin Gasko, focuses on highlighting chocolate's underlying flavors by using only cane sugar and single-source cacao. If you’re a fan of chocolate add-ins and flavoring, Rogue Chocolatier may not be your first pick, as Gasko believes "it’s a wasted effort to make really great chocolate and then throw some nuts on it." But when you're craving a pure, premium chocolate bar? Even Martha Stewart is a fan.

4. BEDRÉ FINE CHOCOLATES // DAVIS, OKLAHOMA

Potato chips, corn twists, and sandwich cookies are all high-demand, chocolate-dipped snacks sold by Bedré Fine Chocolates. But the company’s unusual cacao-based snacks aren’t the only thing setting this American chocolatier apart from other confectioners. It’s also the only U.S. chocolate factory owned by a Native American Tribe. In 2000, the Chickasaw Nation purchased the company, at the time operated out of a former elementary school in south-central Oklahoma. Since then, the company has created local jobs while boosting tourism—not to mention producing a variety of fancier chocolates such as its fudge, filled "meltaways," and filled chocolate bars.

5. FRAN'S CHOCOLATES // SEATTLE

If the White House is asking for more boxes of your chocolate, you know they're doing something right. Seattle-based Fran’s Chocolates became a favorite of not only the Obamas when they were on the campaign trail in 2008, but also their Secret Service agents (despite President Obama’s reported unwillingness to share). Fran’s Chocolates opened in 1982 under the charge of Fran Bigelow, a chocolatier inspired by a trip to Paris, and has created high-quality truffles, caramels, chocolate bars, and dipped fruits and nuts since.

6. CHRISTOPHER ELBOW CHOCOLATES // KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI

You may have to throw an elbow to get a bite of these Midwestern candies. Christopher Elbow Chocolates is known for its small batch, artful chocolates, as well as its lengthy line of customers waiting to snag a few treats. Chocolates are hand-painted like small canvases, but the flavors—such as citrus praline, mango basil, and whiskey walnut—are the real masterpiece. But owner Christopher Elbow isn't just focused on the final look chocolates are made from scratch featuring fresh ingredients and no preservatives—meaning they have a short shelf-life (which shouldn’t be an issue for chocolate lovers).

7. BON BON BON // HAMTRANCK, MICHIGAN

The owner of Bon Bon Bon was told that she’d have to move to a big city for her chocolate shop dreams to be successful.

You don’t have to visit France to find mouthwatering chocolate truffles—No Chewing Allowed takes a 75-year-old French recipe and creates swoon-worthy truffles here in the States. Beyond the classic truffle, chocolate lovers can enjoy Coffee Beans, Candied Orange Peels, and Salted Toffee flavors, among others. Adapun namanya? Owner Lior Genzel means it. The best way to savor a truffle is to let it slowly melt on your tongue, otherwise you’ll miss out on the full chocolatey experience.

10. K'UL CHOCOLATE // MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA

Chocolate is known to have some health benefits, and K’ul Chocolate aims to make the best use of them. Owner Peter Kelsey is a cancer survivor on a mission to show that high-quality cacao has healthful antioxidants and glycemic index levels. Following radiation treatment, chocolate was one of only three flavors Kelsey could taste (next to coffee and protein), and in 2015, he launched K’ul Chocolate with the idea of returning chocolate to its roots as a health food. Since then, the company has focused on bean-to-bar chocolate in Minneapolis, featuring pumpkin seeds, guarana, and other nutritional ingredients in its bars. And with chocolate bars created to boost endurance and restore electrolytes, there’s no reason to feel guilty for indulging your taste buds.
