Issue 23 of Standart entitled ‘Punk, diodes, and coffee’ explores how far coffee has come and how it may involve in the future.
We speak to fermentation designer and Lucia Solis about funky coffee processing, which segues beautifully into a stab at what a future cup of coffee might look like.
It takes a deep dive into the invention of the first espresso machine, drink in life lessons and advice from World Barista Championship boss Cindy Ludviksen, and survey some of the wackier coffee patents filed over the past century.
Our ‘Meet Your Guest’ features an absolute legend of electronic music and modular synth, Suzanne Ciani, and our long-form piece traces the history of punk sobriety, coffee culture, and embodied rebellion in the age of economics.
Standart has been awarded Best Coffee Magazine for every single year since its first publication and for good reason; it’s simply the best there is, covering the whole of coffee culture beyond the simple hot beverage. It’s a work of art itself, exploring coffee culture through design, art and its own blend of meticulous writing.
Every issue has 15 articles, stories, interviews or essays from some of the brightest minds in coffee, and beyond. With every issue, we take you around the globe, and through coffee-tinted spectacles, we explore the world.
