Starbucks, which operates more than 1,000 coffee shops across the U.S., has been a favorite of counter culture, hipsters and hipsters who believe it is an eco-friendly way to spend a coffee, according to its website.
But some coffee shop owners say the chain has become more than just a destination for coffee.

“They are actually very hipster things,” said Joe Schoenfeld, a former Starbucks employee who co-founded a counter cafe in New Jersey called the Coffee Bar.
“I think they are trying to make a difference.
There’s a lot of people who have tried to do that.
But it doesn’t feel authentic.”

Starbucks counters are often decorated with artwork and signs, which Schoenstein said is also popular among hipsters.
Starbucks employees have also been using the counter spaces to host events and socialize with their customers.
