Photos: Istanbul coffee shop pays homage to 'Breaking Bad'
Introducing Istanbul's Breaking Bad inspired coffee shop . . . Deniz Kosan opened Walter’s Coffee Roastery the world’s first Coffee Super Lab in Moda, Kadikoy, Istanbul on March 29 2015. The idea began as an in-joke between the German native and his cousin who resembles the hit show's lead character Walter White - right down to the glasses, facial hair and receding pate. The chemical themed cafe was formerly named “Heisenberg Coffee and Roasting. Following a succesful Kickstarter campaign, the coffee shop was given a makeover as an unnoffical tribute. The owner clarifies it is careful not to use copyrighted material, and is simly inspired by the show - complete with lab decor, yellow apparel, periodic table wall charts, drinks in beakers and 'blue meth' decorated cup cakes.
