San Francisco Coffee house, Four Barrel Coffee seems to be having a little problem with their customers.

According to TechCrunch, the coffee store has had to implement a bunch of rules on customers as neighboring businesses have been complaining about not so appropiate behavior and conversations from these hyped up coffee loving hipsters.

It seems many people were also using the coffee house as their ‘office’ sitting around all day with their laptops leeching off the free wifi – so Four Barrel no longer offers free wifi.

To combat their problem of enthusiastic tech hipsters and their inappropriate conversations – they have put up the following sign:

After all this, it seems admittedly via their Twitter account that the coffee store staff are hipsters and did this to gain media attention and social media followers. It certainly worked and you can check out their Instagram feed here.

You can also see the hashtags #fourbarrel and #fourbarrelcoffee have filled up with photos fast – many also reposting the above photo.
