I woudl recommend to boot off a Tails USB stick, as everything else would be way too risky in a public place. Don't even think about just running the executable on some system! Tails is - as far as I know - the only system designed to still provide security in the environment of a café. It goes so far as so try to wipe the memory when you shut down.

And here's the catch: It comes with GnuPG - but GnuPG 2.0.x AFAIK. Are you positive you absolutely need 2.1? The main reason to require 2.1 is to use ECC, I guess.
