To eyewitness and feel the power of American culture, just step into any hip coffee shop in a big city outside of the United States.

The decor will typically have a Brooklyn aesthetic, with exposed brickwork and mismatched chairs; American pop music will play softly in the background; patrons will pore over their MacBooks while sipping overpriced caffè americano.
