Standart Issue #23: Punks, Diodes, and Coffee
Standart is an award-winning magazine about coffee culture.
In Issue 23, they speak to fermentation designer and Lucia Solis about coffee processing. They take a deep dive into who actually invented 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. To round it all out, they take an anthropological amble through a rural Turkish village where chickpea coffee is drunk practically non-stop, before skirting the Black Sea and trekking towards the Georgian capital, Tbilisi, for a beautifully wrought and atmospheric treatment of its coffee history and wider culture.
Standart presents a unique perspective on the coffee industry and the people in it– featuring baristas, shop owners, roasters, farmers, and even manufacturers of coffee related products. It's one of the older and more well-known magazines on coffee, which we've been trying to source for quite some time. It's an easy and approachable read, great for even non-drinkers to explore.
