Standart love coffee for its ability to foster interesting conversations, chance meetings, and rich experiences. Quarterly published and print only, they dedicate more than 130 pages of beautifully designed and carefully curated content to the beauty of specialty coffee. Sit back, slow down, and enjoy the beauty of the offline world.
Every issue of Standart is beautifully designed and the content carefully curated in order to bring you into a one of a kind experience. It should be meaningful, enriching, and inspiring.
Standart is all about asking the big questions and trying to find the answers over coffee, in this issue they invite you to join them and their talented host of writers and artists for a fresh batch of articles and stories.
In this issue, you're taken from the genome of coffee right to the very edges of the cosmos, with pit stops at the foundation of democracy, post-conflict Colombia, and the white sands of Hawaiian beaches.
The Coffee chapter looks at the future of sustainable coffee breeding, and what sustainability means for the supply chain. The origin profile takes us to Hawaii, and the good folks at Barista Hustle invite you to test out brewing coffee while stood on one foot (no, seriously, try it!).
The People chapter features an interview with Market Lane Coffee's Fleur Studd and, fittingly, an article about the successes of exceptional women in the coffee industry. Rounded out with a short story about interruptions during shift work and the first-known translation of a Brazilian poem about the intricacies of the coffee supply chain.
Finally, the World chapter takes you from a languid contemplation of the Athenian coffee and food scene to an exploration of the arts of tasseography and font design before delving into Colombia?s return to coffee after a lamentable detour into cocaine.
